Pendant Lighting – What’s Trendy…Clustering and Layering

Written by clawver. Posted in Pendants

One of the most striking lighting trends at the moment is clustering pendant lights. Choose an odd number of pendants – three is a great starting point – and cluster them together at different heights to create drama. Choose either a family of pendants in different shapes, or the same pendant in different colors. This technique not only works well over a table, but can also be used to create a nook in the corner of a room, or cascade down a stairwell for a striking effect.

Using the multiple mini pendants to create a warm general light source and an inviting ambience is becoming the norm. More and more frequently they are replacing large island lights and chandeliers to create a sleek, modern look over bars or long tables.

Glass pendant lighting is a smart choice for interior lighting. Glass pendant lights provide function and style to not only home offices, bathrooms, and kitchens, but are becoming increasingly popular in commercial, restaurants and retail space; they are one of the most popular choices for decorative lighting today.

Glass pendants easily transcend many décor styles, are easy to clean and come in many shapes and sizes, including one-of-a-kind hand blown glass. Glass interior pendant lights can be used to offer a direct source of light to a particular task area or can be a decorative accessory to bring mood and color into a room. Some artistic styles of glass pendant lighting include stained glass pendant lights and art glass pendant lighting. For a rustic country style, a glass and rustic bronze pendant light or a pair of caged pendant lights will complete your look. Modern pendant lighting is a good choice for crisp and clean interiors. You can add a fresh look to your décor with a globe pendant light or clear glass mini pendant.

Now to the fun stuff! The decorative aspect of using pendants can be a prime opportunity to add fantastic notes of color and sparkle whether it’s blown or milky glass, shiny and matte metals, or fabric and paper. Pendants can define the space above a breakfast bar, take the place of reading lamps in a bedroom, extend into a foyer or stand in for sconces in a bathroom.

Pendants are often grouped in odd numbers — a single drum shade over a dining table, three slim lights over a kitchen island — for visual appeal. However, an even number is okay, as it’s more important to tailor the number to your space. If a kitchen peninsula has room for only two well-placed fixtures above it, that’s better than cramming in three just for the sake of design maxims.
