Pendant lights hang from a ceiling and place strong light over an island, table or furniture. Often the light is aimed downwards to help with tasks, but also outward to provide ambient lighting. A central stem or chain usually supports a single shade, although it may also support multple light bulbs. Pendants work well for dining and sitting areas. They can also be used in a hall or foyer if there is head-room. They are installed electrically and operated by a wall switch, and can also function as a centerpiece.
Informal and comfortable, this relaxed style accentuates an airy and unpretentious living space, evoking the feeling of a permanent beach cottage vacation. Casual Lighting uses clean and simple lines, subtle curves, natural textures, and decorative glass for a subtle elegance that doesn’t overwhelm the senses.
These hanging lights can form a centerpiece in any room, ideally positioned over a table, counter-top, kitchen island or in the middle of a larger room. They produce a lot of ambient light but also center the light below them. Great for dining rooms and living rooms or over a kitchen island. A larger number of light bulbs tends to produce more light and lights up the whole room.
Pendants are ideal over a table or seating area. They work well in kitchens and dining rooms. But also can be useful in a living room, office, bedroom or guest room.
Since pendants hang from the ceiling they'll shine most of their light at mid-level height. This may produce less ambient light in the upper part of the room. You may want to pair it with some lamps or closer-to-ceiling fixture to fill out the area.
Attaches to a flat ceiling. The provided decorative canopy covers up the electrical installation area.
Plug the pendant into a regular power outlet socket and switch it on.
Easy to put together, solves a problem dark corner, and provides light while looking sleek and sophisticated.
I had a dark workspace in my apartment that I wanted to brighten up with overhead lighting for my online meetings. I bought this plug-in solution since I'm a renter, and I loved that it came with 2 light sockets for the extra boost of light. I am so glad I bought it and wish I'd found it sooner! It comes with everything needed to hang it (screws, anchors, hooks, hardware, etc.) and was easy to install using a drill. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that the inside edges of the shade aren't glued down all the way, but no one can see that once it's up and I can fix that myself later. A fantastic product for the value!
