Leonie Denis Pendant Lighting February 07, 2019 08:31:46
Pendants are optimally used in places that cannot accommodate a table lamp. For example a corner of a living room might not have enough space to fit in a lamp shade. In such cases suspending the light brightens up the place and at the same time saves on space.
Depending on their design glass pendant lights can fit perfectly in a rustic country inspired home or in a modernist home filled with contemporary furnishings. That`s partly because glass is such an ideal material to make lamps out of as it has an organic natural quality that can take on chameleon-like qualities.
Metal glass and wooden pendant lights are all popular choices. They come in mini multi drum up light and down light versions. Explore these different styles below.
A large single pendant is perfect for an entryway where only one source of lighting is needed. This also makes it an artistic focal point. A big pendant works great above a dining room table for the same reason.
Mini Pendant Lights - As the tiniest version these can illuminate work spaces and kitchen islands well. They`re not thought of as ambient lighting but can reinvent the feeling within a space more than any other options. They act as a focal point or a lighting work of art as they are super stylish and can be quite chic. Anyone will find that they command attention and create vigor.
Light will either be directed up or down depending on the shape or type of shade used. Pendants that are inverted will stream light to the ceiling. This provides ambient or mood lighting in a space. Pendants with open bottoms focus light downward allowing them to be task lighting above a workspace like a kitchen island.
