Savannah Ramirez. Pendant Lights. February 04th , 2018.
A pendant light, which is also sometimes referred to as a suspender or drop, is a single light that is hung from the ceiling and suspended by a long electrical cord where electric current is supplied to light up the bulb, which may either be made of fluorescent or incandescent. Although there is a minor disadvantage in using a pendant glow instead of a regular lighting fixture (the illumination that the pendant glow emits is limited), the advantages brought about by its use far outweighs the single nuisance of luminosity limitation.
The lamp globes are what make the character of the pendant glow. It may be made of old lamp shade frames or it may even be a totally new creation of the home owner, or a brand new frame bought from the local light store. Recessed lighting is all very nice in its understated way but the good old pendant light still has a lot going for it. In fact, in some situations, a pendant light really is the only rational choice. Forget glass blown shades filled with dead flies; the modern pendant light bears little relation to those old things, although, of course, if youre after 1950s realism there is no other choice.
Of course, there are literally thousands of pendants to choose from on the market, from traditional designs to those that really double as artwork in the home. Glass pendant lights are particularly popular, largely because they offer homeowners a mix of traditional and modern design elements that are both classic and timeless. Depending on their design, glass pendant lights can fit perfectly in a rustic, country inspired home or in a modernist home filled with contemporary furnishings. Thats partly because glass is such an ideal material to make lamps out of as it has an organic, natural quality that can take on chameleonlike qualities.
Pendant lights is simply a fancy way of saying hanging lights. But they do differ from swags or chandeliers significantly. A pendant is going to hang down at least two feet from the ceiling. It will be singular meaning, one strand, one shade, one bulb. When should you use this style of light fixture? First, my favorite place to install pendant lighting is the kitchen. There they are useful as well as beautiful. What you get with pendant is focused lighting. That is perfect for kitchen work, where you are preparing food and reading recipes.
A pendant hung just over every table will serve the purpose effectively. Pendants are optimally used in places that cannot accommodate a table lamp. For example, a corner of a living room might not have enough space to fit in a lamp shade. In such cases, suspending the light brightens up the place and, at the same time, saves on space. The use of modern pendant lighting is increasingly done for aesthetic reasons as well. They can be used in offcenter 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.
