Lacene Masson Pendant Lighting February 27, 2019 12:15:31
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.
Up Light Pendants - Up Light Pendants are fixtures that shine light upward. This type is great for basic lighting as the light shines skyward and can enlarge a space with ease. One will find that ceramic glass or wooden pendant lights in this style make a statement.
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.
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.
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.
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.
