Introduction to Pendant Lighting
Apart from offering striking illumination, modern pendant lights bring a beautiful balance and contemporary style to any home. Their streamlined profile, often a single light that hangs at varying lengths from a cord or chain from the ceiling, make pendant lights extremely versatile in any application. A pendant light is a great choice when you are looking for a light that can easily fit into condensed spaces like above a kitchen island or table. These fixtures are a great alternative to task lighting, providing focused overhead lighting to any area. There are many different styles and types of modern pendant lighting (some that come with coordinating pendant light shades) to choose from at LuxeDecor that will no doubt make a stylish addition to any room or space. Choosing the right pendant lights will leave a lasting impression on your interior design scheme that brings unique grace and function to your home. LuxeDecor gives you the opportunity to show off your unique sense of style with our extensive selection of fashion-forward industrial pendant lighting, glass pendant lights, and pendants of all varieties by today’s leading lighting brands including Allegri, Artcraft Lighting, Progress Lighting, and Troy Lighting, among many others.

Most commonly utilized in kitchen dining areas, we have a multitude of size options for pendants for kitchen. When considering kitchen pendant lighting, choosing the right sized light can make a huge impact on the proportion of your room. LuxeDecor has petite models perfect for a small space over a sink, or statement makers meant to illuminate a whole space.
Decorating With Pendant Lighting In Your Home
When hanging your pendant lights, consider the scale and proportion of your room and ceilings to create an overall cohesive look for your home. If you have a standard eight foot ceiling, your pendant should hang anywhere between 12 to 20 inches from the ceiling depending on your style preference. For a ten foot ceiling, a light pendant that hangs 15 to 30 inches from the ceiling will bring balanced proportions. Add three inches for each additional foot for taller ceilings. If you’re seeking a retro look, glass orbs are a great modern touch that still gives a retro flair. For a rustic look, try hanging a single pendant that is shaped like a lantern. The Savoy House “Americana Penrose Three-Light Small Foyer Pendant” is a charming additional that features romantic yet modern styling with clear glass and sleek lines. There are tons of different types of light pendants to choose from at LuxeDecor, so that you can let your design inspiration run free whether you decide to feature a single pendant, or group a cluster of pendants for high impact.
