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.
Contemporary and innovative, modern lighting underscores futuristic form and structure, and geometric or asymmetrical shapes. A modern lighting design instills functionality within an artfully streamlined form, radiating a reflective glow while providing clear and bright light. Modern Lighting complements a sleek, contemporary interior with straight lines, and can also create an agreeable contrast with transitional styles.
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.
The light looks great very modern and elegant. However, for something made of the glass, the packing is minimal and the first one sent to me was broken. Good thing I was able to return and get an intact replacement without any problems. The pole that came with it has several sections so you can adjust its length to your liking. It was not hard to install this, although I've had previous experience with wiring these things.
These lights are great. We installed three of them above the island bar area. They were easy to install and look timeless and classy, which is exactly what I was looking for. I was surprised by the texture of the glass. It has a horizontal stripping around its glass enclosure. This looks so much better than simple frosting. I love its great timeless look.
