108,959 Pendant Lighting

Pendant lights are a great way to light any space from your kitchen island to highlighting your dining room table. Pendant lights are a fixture that hangs from the ceiling, suspended by a cord, chain or metal rod. They’re often used in multiples, and are hung in a straight line over kitchen countertops and sometimes in bathrooms. They’re able to provide ambient or task lighting and are available in a wide variety of styles to suit your personal taste. More

When on the lookout for pendant lighting, think about the following:

Do I want inverted or downlight pendant lights?


This all depends on where you're placing your pendant lights and the function you desire from them. Are they going to provide soft, mood-evoking lighting above your dining table? Choose inverted pendant lights: these create ambient light by directing the light upward. Do you want focused lighting over your kitchen island? Consider downlight pendant lights: these are best for task illumination, as they direct the light downward.

Should I consider mini pendant lights?


If you're working in a small space or just want to diversify your look, you may want to consider using mini pendant lights. The width of mini pendant shades range from 4 or 5 inches to 11 or 12 inches, and generally require a single 40 to 60-watt bulb.

How many pendant lights should I purchase for one spot?


Depending on what you're lighting, you can choose one single pendant light or group several together. Highlight a great piece of art with a single pendant light, or use multiple lights in a circle, line or on a track to emphasize a certain part of a room.

What style pendant light should I choose?


With a wide variety of styles available to choose from, pendant lights are a great piece to use to add an extra design element. Choose a brushed nickel plated pendant light for a clean, contemporary look, or find one finished in bamboo for a unique, Asian appeal.
