Pendant Lights

Pendant lights dangle from the ceiling in a similar manner to a pendant on a chain around your neck, and they come in sizes, shapes, styles and colors as varied as jewelry. This style of lighting is incredibly versatile, offering a focused source of light that can be ambient, decorative, or task-specific. Often seen above a kitchen island, they also make ideal bedside lamps, hanging from above rather than taking up valuable night table space. Look closely at the way the finish works within your space, and remember to pay attention to how well and in what direction the light is actually directed.
