A miniature pendant is usually a 1-light pendant which hangs from the ceiling. The smaller pendant directs downward light to a specific area, over a kitchen island, table or furniture. A group of mini pendants in a row is a great way to light a larger area, and they often feature colorful shades. As a hardwired light fixture, mini pendants are installed electrically and operated by a wall switch. You may need at least a few mini pendants to light a larger area such as an island or bar.

A mini pendant offers a spot-light of focused light over a local area. Being typically a one-light fixture they need to be grouped to light a larger area. Light will diffuse and reflect outward for ambient light, but most of the light will be aimed downwards to light a surface. Best used over a piece of furniture such as a kitchen island, bar or table.
Mini pendant lights work well over furniture such as a kitchen island, bar or dining area. They are most often found in kitchens and dining rooms, although could also provide interesting office lighting.
Being fairly small, these small pendants tend to shed light near to themselves. For a larger area you'll need more than one. They may act almost like spotlights. Wall lights or another main light fixture is a good complement, or consider adding some lamps.
Attaches to a flat ceiling. Includes a canopy which covers the electrical installation area. However, since the mini-pendant is lightweight, it could potentailly hang from a vaulted or sloped ceiling, though pressure will apply to the bent stems/chain and power cord.
An electrician or person with electrical installation knowledge will need to permanently wire the mini pendant into the building's electrical supply.
I am very happy with this pendant. It looks great and seems well-made. I installed it hanging over my dining room table and used all the three included extension rods. The design looks glorious, especially when we are having out dinner and its turned on. The whole family just loves looking at it. This is a great purchase and highly recommended!
