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.
Tiffany glass, inspired by Louis Comfort Tiffany, brings a splash of color and personality into any interior. Highly stylized and dreamlike, the art glass dominates the design, with a glass shade that casts colorful light, making Tiffany Style Lighting lamps and fixtures perfect for reading or creating an ambient mood. When looking to add a signature element to your room, Tiffany style lights will set a stage of color and focus.
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.
After looking at hundreds of mini pendants at numerous websites, I found this beautiful light, which was extremely easy to install (took me all of five minutes). I bought three of these to mount over my kitchen island and kitchen sink. They are well-made, beautiful and priced right. They really pop in the kitchen, and give good light coverage. My wife was ecstatic when she found it.
