Awesome Retro Pendants
The trends in bringing back the restoration style of the 50’s are matched by the comeback of light fixture designs of the 60’s. Interior design nowadays just has lots of modern and old-fashioned options to suit most every taste. Retro pendants are making a huge comeback.
Pendant lights are also known as drops or suspenders. These hanging lights can immediately add life to an otherwise boring space. Pendant lights are generally used for their decorative aspects. They just look great installed in rows or placed individually in certain spots in your home. Additionally, they not only give your living space a facelift, they also provide useful illumination.
What’s great about retro pendant lights is that they can give enough light without using up too much energy like a chandelier would. Plus, you can even use them as task-light room-accents. Simply install them over your kitchen counter or your study area and you will have focused light for doing the tasks you need to finish.
So, how do you incorporate retro lights into your space? Simple! Just add them to a room with a rich base color such as brown or grey. The solid colors of your walls will make the funky colors and designs stand out.
Are you convinced that going retro is what you should do? Don’t worry! There are lots of places where you can get your hands on your retro pendant lights – light fixture stores, auctions, online shops and garage sales. Just be sure to pick the light fixture that will complement the room you want to install it in.
In conclusion, a pendant light is a simple fixture but can add character to a bland space. So, this means that retro pendant lights add style to your home. You can see this for yourself when you switch them on and the fixtures create fantastic colors in your living space.
