Pendant lights are any lights that hang from a ceiling, whether they hang over a kitchen island or a dining room table. Pendant lights can cast direct light or diffuse light, and can be decorative or utilitarian. Many pendant lights have several branches. Perfect for your home kitchen or living room, Dragonfly?s pendant lighting fixtures add a soothing effect to your environment. These lights are perfect above a home bar, or over a living room sofa. For restaurant and lounge owners, pendant lights are an inexpensive option if you are looking to add classy ambiance to your social gatherings.
Pendant lighting fixtures will not only illuminate your home, but also add color and personality to your interior. Pendant lights are simpler and more affordable versions of chandeliers. They are single-hanging entities without the extra branches of a chandelier. The light may be stripped to a bare bulb suspended from a cord, or housed in a decorative shade crafted from glass or metal. Pendant lights can be every bit as fancy and stylistic as chandeliers at a fraction of the cost.
Pendants can range in size from 2 inches to larger fixtures that are 22 to 48 inches in diameter. Interior designers appreciate them because they are more interesting than recessed lighting. Pendants can be used to spice-up a room or to compliment color schemes. When hung in multiples (in straight lines or staggered at different heights for effect), they can also effectively set a mood. Pendant lighting fixtures typically serve as task lights which define the work surface of a kitchen island or bar, but they can be also used in foyers, bedrooms, and bathrooms. Wherever space is an issue, pendant lights can be hung from above, freeing up space in the room for furniture and other things.
Dragonfly?s hand-made Italian pendants offer a kinetic dimension; light dances as it shines through the glass and color comes alive. Pendants should not be seen as household furniture, but should command the same respect as jewelry. They sparkle, enlighten, and soften a clean, simple environment. Pendant lighting is one of the most important design innovations of the past century.
