Elisamarie Rousseau Pendant Lights March 15, 2018 01:21:49
A large, single pendant is perfect for an entryway where only one source of lighting is needed. This also makes it an artistic focal point. A big pendant works great above a dining room table for the same reason.
Pendant lighting is always a good choice in a home. Whether you use pendants as an alternative to a traditional chandelier in the entryway or over the dining room, or as lighting in a bedroom, home office or play area, pendants are one of the most versatile lighting choices you can make.
Pendants, particularly glass pendants, are a great addition to any home. They not only add the perfect amount of light to the space you`re trying to light, but they add a touch of elegance and old world charm that few other lights can. They clearly demonstrate that our love of glass is enduring, even in the 21st century.
One of the best things about glass pendants is that they can be artistic as well as functional. If you`re a fan of Dale Chihuly, you can get fiery colored lamps or lamps that look like flowers or other sculptural shapes that will work wonderfully in an entryway or in a stairwell. In fact, you can get glass pendant lights that are made specifically as works of art - bold pieces that add splendor and a cascade of light to a living space.
There are a number of styles of glass lighting. The classic style has always had its own vintage charm. The steel and Tiffany style lighting again serve to different tastes and have different appeals. There are silver, golden-colored and bronze-colored finishes with wrought iron intricate works added on the glass base.
The use of modern pendant lighting is increasingly done for aesthetic reasons as well. They can be used in off-center positions to highlight a particular part or aspect of designing. They can also be used to deflect attention from one part of the room to another.
