The use of modern pendant lighting is increasingly done for aesthetic reasons as well. They can be used in off-center positions to highlight a particular part or aspect of designing. They can also be used to deflect attention from one part of the room to another.
Small pendants like mini globes are great alternatives to installing track lighting. Their lighting is bright but less intense all around so it is perfect for task lighting in a kitchen or other work area. Hanging small pendants in multiples allows for sufficient lighting. Make sure to hang them above eye level to prevent glare.
A pendant light is also known as a drop or suspender. It is a lone light fixture that hangs from the ceiling suspended by a cord chain or metal rod. Used by themselves pendant lights present a striking feature to a room. More often they are hung in multiples in a straight line over countertops dining tables or bathrooms.
Blown glass pendants are more popular than ever these days. Looking as if an artisan made them they have small imperfections such as bubbles in the surface giving them a handmade look. Others have been blown to have a stained-lass effect being a mix of several different colors or hues of the same color. As such no two are exactly alike so pairing them adds even more visual interest to the space. In fact it`s hard for visitors to your home to not be enraptured by the fixtures given their slight imperfections and ever changing shapes as they hang above a living space.
Modern glass pendant lighting is a great choice for sleek and clear interior lighting and design. One can add fresh looks to home decor with a clear glass or globe pendant light or professional looks with sharp white circular or cylindrical pendant lights.
If you are putting them in the play area you may want to go with acrylic lights instead of glass pendant lights. As any parent knows children can be pretty rambunctious and lights inevitably end up getting in the way of an errant football or flying Barbie. Better to play it safe and get an unbreakable light.
