5 bold, beautiful and unexpected ways to light with pendants

Pendants are a style of lighting that everyone can agree on – mainly because there is such a wide selection of colors, materials and sizes to choose from. There’s truly a fit for every design taste. When it comes to placing pendants, we’ve noticed that designers are thinking outside the box (or outside the kitchen island) and coming up with new and creative ways to use pendant lighting. Here are some out of the ordinary applications for pendants that may spark creativity in your own home.

Group pendants above a breakfast nook

Create a beautiful spectacle above a kitchen nook by grouping pendants at varying heights. The display of our Academy pendants exudes a contemporary feel with their whimsical school-house profile and on-trend clear glass make-up.

Exchange your recessed lights for bold pendants

Looking for some general lighting applications with a little more pizzazz? Say good-bye to your recessed cans and hello to a stunning alternative in pendants. Look for large pendants with a high lumen output and a clean lined design for this type of application.

Light up your living area with a statement pendant

Since large-scale lighting is high on the wish list of today’s designers and homeowners, using a statement pendant in place of your traditional chandelier is a natural transition. Create a space where family and friends will love to linger with our Ashbury pendant, shown below.

Spice up your sitting area with elongated pendants

Pendants with a thinner profile are often used for hallway and foyer applications. However, a display of elongated pendants grouped together can help fill your vertical space in a large room in a new and beautiful way.
