Awesome Retro Pendants

Posted on April 27, 2015 by Ed Lecciones | 0 comments

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.

Blog - Getting the Perfect Gift for Your Parents

The holidays are quickly approaching and, if you’re anything like me, you have a really hard time figuring out what to get for people. I find that the longer I have known somebody, the harder it is to find something that shows how much you value who they are as a person and how much you appreciate your relationship.

Parents. I’ve known them my whole life, so why is it so hard to find something for them? Dads are the number one hardest demographic to shop for, in my opinion. I try not to repeat gifts, which has resulted in me actually making presents for the last year or so. It is hard to find the time to create these items. I can’t speak for everyone with a dad, but based on my dad’s interests and our location, I have narrowed down a few items that I think he might like.

Blog - Cody's Movember Favorites - Gifts for the Men in Your Life

Black Friday starts before Halloween and Christmas trees hit the shelves in September, which means by now you’ve been inundated with countless promos and countless gift giving options.
