5 Happy Inspirations: Pendant Lights

24 January 2012 0


I think it is no interior design secret that good lighting is a prerequisite to style. Without adequate light or with the wrong light, a room won’t have a pleasant atmosphere regardless of how beautifully the rest is styled. Luckily, today we have the choice of a big variety of light solutions to accentuate our interiors. Sophisticated rooms tend to have soft pools of light coming from multiple sources. Consider table lamps, floor lamps, sconces and pendant lights, think of exposed bulbs, quirky lamp shades, wooden solutions, enamel, metal, paper designs. 

So, for today’s ‘5 Happy Inspirations’ I’ve compiled five really inspiring pendant light examples to revive our lighting ideas and maybe trigger some inspiration for our own homes. Do you have a favorite?

    Lamps is one thing I am extremely picky about. I usually either love or hate them. But I loved ALL of these lamps! Great post Igor!

    Igor great lighting selection and yes lighting is number 1 in importance in all areas of art/design and especially in my world of photography. My favourite is 2 I adore these wooden shades love the shape a little like an inverted red wine glass!!

    Tolle Auswahl! Die Glühbirnen mit den bunten Aufhängungen hab ich jetzt mal in Berlin gesehen (im Designladen um die Ecke … ich liebe Großstädte ;)) und war ganz begeistert. Auch das letzte Bild ist toll. Moderne Kronleuchter finde ich sowieso wunderbar … wenn du da mal welche siehst, wäre ich sehr angetan von Vorschlägen ;)!

    lol! Now I know why you were into that pendant DIY over at my space 🙂 Great round up here Igor. My favourite? A tie between #2 and #5. Actually maybe I’m feeling more attracted to #5 today … could change tomorrow. But those two are my best. Xx.

    Number 5 feels best for the kitchen above the dining table, and it feels very vintage but has a modern touch to it; maybe a good light company can help create such a design. What do you think?
