Globe Pendant Lights for the Modern Home
Globe pendant lighting allows you to dazzle with your home's lighting decor using a universal form that captures the gaze and brings peace to the home through symmetry. Characterized by their spherical nature, this form of pendant lights brings contemporary elegance to any room it is added to.
A globe pendant light can act as a standalone statement piece for important gathering rooms such as the dining room or living room. There is no doubt that when hung above a dining room, every holiday dinner will be illuminated with a level of sophistication and grace that will imprint a special memory of the evening on every family member and guest.
Yet, globe pendant lights can also be used throughout a room to provide feelings of symmetry and consistency to a room’s interior design and lighting. For example, consider adding multiple small pendant lights over a counter, or three above a rectangular dining table for a dramatic look with even lighting - one pendant on each end and one above the centerpiece.
Finding the Perfect Globe Pendant Light
To find the perfect globe pendant light for your home, you will want to consider the color and finishes that are already present in your home. For example, does your home feature brass, gold, bronze, or crystal themes already? If so, including pendant lights of the same nature can tie in your home’s design.
Glass globe pendant lights are a popular choice because of their minimalistic, yet traditional appeal. The 14.1 Single Pendant from Bocci is a clear example of a glass globe pendant light updated with a modern twist. The cast glass that surrounds the bulb contains bubbles and imperfections that produce a halo of light. Yet, this light is subtle and petite - only 4 inches in diameter - and is often used in multiples rather individually.
Another example of a small globe pendant light that works well in multiples are the Copper Shade Pendant Light from Tom Dixon. This pendant light is as the name suggests - a pendant light with a bold copper shade surrounding the light fixture. For homes already displaying themes of copper, this globe pendant light is a great addition.
For a globe pendant truly unique, consider the Coral Pendant Light from David Trubridge Design. The Coral Pendant Light is a statement of geometry. Fashioned of 60 pieces of bamboo plywood with a single light bulb illuminating from the center, this pendant light has a unique glow of both light and silhouetted leaves.
