Due to the introduction of LED technology, modern pendant lights and chandeliers are moving into new realms of lighting design. With the restriction of the light bulb no longer being present, led pendant lights and chandeliers are taking on new shapes and sizes that were not possible before. A LED pendant light with an ultra-slim profile, like the Vix Linear Pendant Light from Cerno, will keep a room feeling open and spacious. Whereas a pendant light that resembles a piece of sculptural art, such as the Heracleum II Pendant Light from Moooi, will easily become the focal point of any room.The Benefits of LED Chandeliers and Pendant Lights
In addition to allowing for the opportunity to create new and exciting designs, LEDs are also environmentally-friendly. Using up to 90% less energy, installing LED chandeliers and pendant lights will help to reduce the overall carbon footprint of a home. LED light sources also product less heat than other light sources, keeping the pendant light fixtures cool as well as the surrounding space. The lifespan of the LED is up to 10 times longer than other light sources, making the maintenance of LED pendant lighting drastically less than other light fixtures.How to Choose a LED Pendant Light and Chandelier
When selecting the perfect LED chandeliers and pendant light fixtures for your space, there are several things to pay attention to, such as the lumens and color temperature of the LED. The number of lumens associated with a LED identifies how bright the light will be, whereas the color temperature identifies how warm or cool the light is. For spaces that need bright task lighting such as a desk or kitchen island, select a pendant light with a high amount of lumens. When selecting the color temperature of the LEDs the higher the number the cooler the light, however, deciding between cool or warm light is up to personal preference.
LED chandeliers that are warm provide a traditional yellowish color that is perfect for creating a comfortable, familiar feeling in a dining room or entryway. Whereas a cooler LED light fixture will provide light that projects a clean, modern look that is ideal for spaces such as a kitchen or bathroom.
