One of the best things about glass pendants is that they can be artistic as well as functional. If you`re a fan of Dale Chihuly you can get fiery colored lamps or lamps that look like flowers or other sculptural shapes that will work wonderfully in an entryway or in a stairwell. In fact you can get glass pendant lights that are made specifically as works of art - bold pieces that add splendor and a cascade of light to a living space.
They can also be hung in a group at varying heights to create an artistic lighting look in the corner of a room. Modern pendants are energy saving low voltage models using halogen LED or fluorescent bulbs. They come in a huge variety of sizes and vary in materials. They can be metal cloth glass or plastic.
Glass pendant lights cast off more light than a fabric shaded counterpart. The light can be further altered by the color of the glass used in the fixture. Some glass lights come with opaque or transparent shades that will control the direction of the light. But others are clear allowing the light to shine through increasing the beauty and effectiveness of the lights.
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.
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.
Pendants particularly glass pendants are a great addition to any home. They not only add the perfect amount of light to the space you`re trying to light but they add a touch of elegance and old world charm that few other lights can. They clearly demonstrate that our love of glass is enduring even in the 21st century.
