Consider Your Space
Light fixtures are often already set into your home’s layout. Finding spaces to install a hanging light to enhance your illumination schema is one of the most effective ways to refresh a room’s tone. This design element takes up no footprint but touches every corner. From large, open-concept living areas to intimate corners and functional spaces, like kitchens, the fit and function of pendant fixtures and hanging lamps should specifically suit their environment. We recommend first considering the dimensions and layout of the room and then imagining its lighting needs throughout the day.
Living rooms and transitional spaces are some of the most dynamic in your home. They are where we gather to relax and entertain in solitude or good company. This dynamic presents the unique challenge and opportunity of finding a light that can adapt to the size and multifunctionality of the space. If your living room is an open space with generous dimensions, consider a pendant light with more bulbs to cast a brighter light. Our collection of Jerry Pendant Lights come in two, four, or six-light arrangements and a variety of finishes so you can find just the right fit. The Tala Basalt collection also comes in multiple designs—consider placing a series of them throughout your home for a chic lighting motif.
In more intimate spaces, like a dining room, you might consider the more direct illumination of single pendant lights or hanging lamps to cast a warm pool of light over a focal point or dining table. These can also be the ideal option for kitchen pendant lighting which should offer a brilliant radiance for meal prep but a cozier glow for those social moments spent on bar stools around the kitchen island. Consider dimmable lights—one of the many browsable features in our collection—to fit these spaces.
Floor to Ceiling Style
As you begin to get a feel for the lighting needs of a room, it is time to start branching out into styling options. Good lighting is a crucial part of defining your design aesthetic, and pendant light fixtures offer an incredible opportunity to bring some signature style into your overhead space. From metal pendant lights with lustrous finishes to natural woven pieces that freshen your style, there is no limit to how hanging lights can be used to layer depth and character into a look.
A fixture with geometric lines or a spherical shade can add a modern touch to a refined space. In contrast, the delicate lines of traditionally-inspired glass and brass designs can elevate a transitional aesthetic with a timeless note. For a laid-back living space or earthy kitchen pendant lighting option, consider browsing pendant lights with woven shades to refresh a look with some natural texture. These pieces cast a filtered light with an artisanal touch. This can be an excellent way to contrast a sleek decor or echo and ground the organic feel of other rattan and cane elements throughout your home.
A pendant light can offer almost endless ideas to enhance any style of home design. You can use it as a daring accent, completely reimagining an entire room and bringing it to life. Intricately detailed designs and natural textures can help add a new dimension to your home and illuminate your aesthetic. Make a bold statement by using pendant light fixtures as a tone-setting design element in your home.
