Hospitality lighting techniques also make creative use of pendants in hotels and restaurants.
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.
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.
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.
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.
