kitchen pendant lighting

Pendant lighting not only light up your house, but they also add colour and personality to your interior. They're shapely, chic, sexy and funky. If you've overlooked pendant lighting, you're missing out on an accessory that is rapidly coming back into style.
Pendant Lights
Mini-pendants serve ask task lights to define the work surface of a kitchen island.
Pendant lights are scaled-down and more affordable versions of chandeliers. They are single-hanging entities without the extra branches. The light may be stripped to a bare bulb suspended from a cord, or housed in a decorative shade crafted from glass, resin, metal or fabric. In actuality, pendant lights can be every bit as fancy as chandeliers, because they can be studded with Swarovski crystals or dangling gemstones.
Pendants can range in size from a tiny 2 inches, to a lantern that is 22 to 48 inches in diameter. Interior designers and architects appreciate them because they're more interesting than the recessed lighting that create holes in ceilings. Pendants can be used to spice-up a room or to instigate colour schemes. When hung in multiples (I.e. in straight lines or staggered at different heights for effect), they can also effectively set a mood.

I love pendant lighting, but we don't have any. Maybe one day! I just loved those photos. Not just because of the lights, but because of the detail of those kitchens. Sigh. So pretty!

Consider one of the cable systems which can be hung across a room, adding drama and spot lighting throughout. The effect is functional sculpture. Many pendants are being sold separately as well as with a transformer.
