As my clients & friends already know about me, I’m not one for convention & following the well trodden path. When it comes to interiors, lighting is a good example… don’t just think of pendant lighting for your dining area. This versatile ceiling fixture can really be used in almost any space… coming in a variety of sizes and styles, consider pendants for your kitchen, bedroom, living room, hallway through to your office.
Choosing the finish…
- Fabric pendant lights give off a softer glow, because of the diffused light through the fabric shades. Use fabric pendant lights over dining room tables and kitchen islands where you want a softer glow for eating and entertaining.
- Glass shade pendants utilise glass or acrylic to maximize the light output and emit a concentrated light, for specific tasks, like at a desk or work surface.
Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn have some great styles this season. The exciting news…. no longer will you have to pay exorbitant international delivery fees to access their range – with their new retail space currently being built in Bondi Junction, stylish and affordable furnishings are now on our (or at least for Sydneysiders…) doorstep.
Using pendant lights for specific tasks, effective ambient lighting or even as sculptural artworks, they are an affordable way to transform your space and beautifully light your home.
