Find out how pendant lighting moves with trends in modern interior design


Recent years have seen more awareness given to lighting design when it comes to renovating or designing homes and work spaces. Most of us are now aware of different types of lights for differing purposes. Directional spotlights focus light in a specific direction, whereas up lighters or down lighters are useful to diffuse light into a specific corner to create warmth and atmosphere.  Lighting design too moves with trends in interior design and for some time spotlights and large feature lamps overtook in popularity for the sometimes maligned pendant light.

However, modern design has seen a very strong renaissance of ceiling hanging pendant lighting. Whether to serve as task lighting in a kitchen or over a work area, to flood an entire room with general lighting or as a statement design piece, pendant lighting has certainly found its place once more in the modern home.


Pendants can be multi purpose too! All it takes is the addition of a dimmer switch to transform task or general lighting into a subtler more atmospheric look.  Choose from the sleek look of a metal domed pendant ideal for kitchens, studies or any industrial-look design. Or go for a softer diffused light of a fabric cylindrical fitting for a more contemporary, feminine feel. To adorn an open staircase or atrium choose the pure design extravagance of a modern, complex chandelier as the centrepiece.
