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.

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.
An electrician or person with electrical installation knowledge will need to permanently wire the pendant light into the building's electrical supply.
I have been looking for pendants to hang over the island in my kitchen for a while and I'm glad I didn't settle. These are the perfect size, provide the perfect light, and are really good looking. We considered the RH version but this one actually looks a bit more traditional, yet is still over-sized and exactly what we wanted. The price point cannot be beat. They arrived quickly and were very easy to install. I would recommend!
