Elisamarie Rousseau Pendant Lights January 06, 2018 05:40:16
Pendant lights, drops, or suspenders, whatever you call them, the looks and purpose remain unchanged. They all refer to the hanging lights that instantly change the décor of a simple looking place. It is true that they are mainly used for decoration purposes, but a pendant here and a pendant there does make a world of a difference.
Pendants can vary according to size as well. They can either be long or short, large or small, depending upon the room size and requirement.
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.
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.
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.
There are a number of styles of glass lighting. The classic style has always had its own vintage charm. The steel and Tiffany style lighting again serve to different tastes and have different appeals. There are silver, golden-colored and bronze-colored finishes with wrought iron intricate works added on the glass base.
