Modern & Contemporary Pendant Lights of Every Color & Every Finish

Finding the right color and finish for your pendant lighting is key to unlocking the character of your space's design. Consider the other fixtures in your room and the finishes and colors of your furniture and decor. Depending on these factors, you may want to choose a pendant lighting that contrasts to add drama, or blends for consistency.

Pendant Lighting for Every Style

Due to the vast amount of available styles, modern pendant light fixtures allow you to customize your space by either making a bold, design statement or perfectly complementing a room's overall decor. Kitchen pendant lighting can provide the perfect amount of style and task lighting to kitchen islands. While chandeliers are often the go-to for living room, entryway, and dining room lighting, we love using large dining room pendants as options. We encourage the use of hanging lights in what would appear to be unorthodox places, with the proper set-up bathroom pendant light fixtures and bedroom pendant lights provide great task lighting.

How to Choose the Best Pendants?

With such a vast number of pendant lighting shapes, colors, styles, and size options it can be overwhelming choosing the perfect pendant for your space. To help you find the perfect pendant, here are a few things to consider.

  • Consider the size of the room - The size of a pendant should scale with the size of the room. Larger rooms benefit from pendants that feature large drum shades while smaller pendant lights work well in smaller spaces.

  • Ambient or task lighting: When choosing pendant lighting for an area, it is important to take note of the natural light and other lighting fixtures in the room. If the space needs ambient lighting, aim for pendant lighting with a transparent shade, exposed bulb, or abstract LED multi-bulb fixtures. For task lighting, opt for cylinder, cone, and teardrop pendant lighting fixtures for a more directed light.

  • Complementing decor or standing out: If the room has a cohesive look, turn to hanging pendant lights that align with that style. You can also choose a pendant light that stands out and serves as the focal point of the room.
