Fanette Legrand Pendant Lighting March 25, 2019 08:40:00
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.
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.
Drum Pendant Lights - Drum Pendants are light fixtures featuring a cylindrical drum-style shade. These types work seamlessly in every room. Choose a basic white cloth shade or a dark shade with metal features. There are also patterned shades to add fun as well as double or triple concentric styles that have gained in popularity as of late. Anyone that wants to add some style can easily do so with a drum pendant light.
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.
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.
Pendant lighting is a popular choice because it is inexpensive and less bulky compared to chandeliers. It also makes for great task lighting in workspaces such as the kitchen. They are attractive focal points while still being a functional lighting source. They save space over a floor or table lamp and provide more ambient lighting over greater surface areas.
