Lighting Round-up: Pendants and chandeliers

I love pendant lighting especially if it has industrial elements. I see them and my heart skips a beat. Sad? Yeah a little bit but that’s what being a designer is like. We get excited by those sorts of things. I did a little shopping around to find some awesome pendant lights and this is what I gathered. They range anywhere from $20 to $500

Under $50

Here we have some funky stuff and even something that’s a little rustic. I think my absolute favorite from this category is the Ranarp ceiling light (taklampa). I really love the gold details on it. What’s great is the lamps aren’t super small so with the right light bulbs you can definitely get away with using one.

In this category we have some funky mod chandeliers and some pendants that could work well in a variety of styles. My favorite out if this category is the Zuo pendant and the Chip pendant. Both would work great in a kitchen but the chip pendant is versitile enough to be used over a dining room table in a kitchen nook, in a living space like a living room, or even in a bathroom.

Okay so this is my favorite and least favorite category. I love the lighting in this group the best but the price tag makes me want to cry because unless I suddenly became the richest person ever, I would never buy them. They just cost way to much and I would feel guilty buying them. However that bamboo chandelier is so amazing. I love the form and how its modern in its shape but its rustic materials make it able to work in a myriad of spaces.

So I tried to give you guys a well rounded round-up (ha. ha. get it?). Stuff that is modern, industrial, funky, and a little more rustic. You’ll notice I didn’t throw in any traditional chandeliers and that’s because I want this post to help you think outside the box when it comes to lighting. You guys already know about those so here are some other options to think about. I hope you guys like what I put together for you. Leave in the comments below which one is your favorite! Until next time…
