Pendant Lights / April 23, 2018 / semangat
Pendants can be hung in pairs or in a chain-think of matte silver steel overhanging lights that are positioned above the line of a long kitchen island. It can be placed in clusters-you can put together a bunch of lanterns in varying sizes and colours, place them in a corner of a room, and you now have an elegant, luminous, gorgeous bouquet of light. Then again, you can simply hang a single, lone pendant in a strategic area where it can serve as a minimalist and practical lighting solution.
Pendant lighting is a relative newcomer to the market of home lighting fixtures. Although it has been around since the 1940's, this type of lighting is just coming into its own as homes are built with higher ceilings. Although there is no evidence of this, the development of the pendant light was probably a reaction to finding a form of lighting that was less elaborate than the chandelier but that served basically the same function and purpose. The description of the typical pendant light is a single fixture that hangs from the ceiling from a chain or other kind of supporting device such as a metal rod. They are far less elaborate than the chandelier and rather than having its lights exposed (like a chandelier), the pendant employs a shade of sorts at the end which, in fact, is described as the pendant.
