Pendant lighting is a modern and attractive alternative to plain, traditional light fixtures and illumination. As opposed to classic fixtures that lie flush against the ceiling and uniformly light a room, modern pendant lights hang from the ceiling by cable, wire, stem, or chain, and offer a stylish and highly customizable way to brighten up a whole room or direct light to specific area or feature within a room. Pendant lights can be found in an extraordinarily wide range of types, shapes, materials, and colors, and are uniquely suited to creating a modern or industrial aesthetic inside your home.
mini-pendant lighting, kitchen island pendant lighting, and drum pendant lighting

Modern Pendant Light Types -

Mini-Pendant Lighting: Often used to brighten small rooms or specific areas in larger ones, mini-pendant lights are stand-alone lights, less than 12” wide, that narrowly focus attention on specific features or spaces. Because mini-pendant lights have a distinctly contemporary look and appeal, AllModern stocks a wide variety of modern mini-pendant lighting.

Kitchen Island Pendant Lighting: Like its name suggests, a kitchen island pendant light is an ideal lighting source to hang above your kitchen island or any long narrow space or surface. A kitchen pendant light can be masked by a long, block-like shade, or simply resemble a series of mini-pendant lights grouped together onto one fixture. Kitchen island pendant lighting is especially suited for use above long tables, along hallways, or to spotlight pool tables or other game room essentials.

Drum Pendant Lighting: As opposed to the other types of pendant lighting we touched on above, drum pendant lights generally cast a wider light and are more suited to room-encompassing illumination. Because of its more traditional, circular form, drum pendant lighting can be adapted for use in a range of design settings from modern, industrial, rustic, or vintage.

pendant shapes and materials

Modern Pendant Light Shade Shapes and Materials - Along with the size and style of a modern pendant light, the pendant light shade is the most important design factor that will influence your lighting choice. Pendant light shades can be found in an incredible range of shapes and designs, ranging from modern abstract designs to drum, cone, bell, and other shade shapes. Depending on your personal style and current home décor, you can choose between more familiar metal pendant lights or glass pendant lights, or more distinct materials like fabric or wood. Aside from design and material, your choice of shade has more of a functional impact than you might think. Downward facing pendant lights often use bowl, cone, bell, or similarly shaped shades to narrowly focus light in a defined area, and are referred to as task lighting. In general, shades that face up, towards the ceiling, provide ambient light that is better suited to brightening the entirety of a room. This kind of pendant light is especially suited to general room lighting, effectively illuminating the entirety of a bedroom or kitchen rather than just a part of it.
