Chandelier Styles and Shapes for Your Home. Chandeliers can make the space in 2 ways. First, they can look amazing in their own right. A real showpiece for a room. Second, they illuminate a space and as we know, the light in any room can have a huge impact on the interior design. Light impacts your mood. In fact, while it's well know lack of natural light can negatively impact your emotional wellbeing, the intensity of interior light can also have an impact on your emotions. One example is that people in brighter light have more intense emotions, both good and bad. Examples of more intense emotions include wanting spicier sauce, perceiving someone more attractive and even reporting the temperature being warmer (source: Huffington Post). Interestingly, light can also affect what we eat, how much we eat and how fast we eat (source: Mentalfloss.com). Accordingly, the light in your home is a very important decision, both for aesthetic purposes and functional purposes (i.e. your enjoyment and wellbeing within your home). What is a chandelier? A chandelier is a type of ceiling light. Merriam Webster defines a chandelier as “a branched often ornate lighting fixture suspended from a ceiling.” The immediate question that arises is, how is a chandelier technically different from some pendant lights? After all, pendant lights such as the island/antler variety are branched lighting fixtures too? It boils down to the amount of branches. 2, 3 or even 4 branches are still pendant. Moreover, the pendant light is larger as well. But, once there are more than 4 branches with smaller lights, it's a chandelier.
Pendant lights are still very much in style for their intended use. In fact, they are growing in popularity. A pendant light is a ceiling light that hangs or is suspended from the ceiling. There are many types of pendant lights.While recessed lighting and flush mount lights are more commonly used in homes and used in more rooms of the home, for some rooms and locations, pendant lights are the first choice are used extensively. While there are examples of pendants used in every room, there are two distinct rooms and placements where they are very commonly used.
Living Rooms with Pendant Lights (Photo Gallery). Pendant lights aren't a super popular living room ceiling lighting option; chandeliers and flush-mount ceiling lights are a bit more common. Lamps (table and floor) are also popular for living rooms. When living rooms have pendant lighting, it's often complemented with recessed lighting (track lighting in older homes). Nevertheless, as you will see in our gallery below, some living rooms do have pendant lights. FYI, in some cases there's debate whether a particular light is a pendant light or a chandelier. Chandelier designs have moved into pendant light design territory while island and sputnik style pendants can appear as chandelier. Accordingly, we understand if you disagree with any particular categorization… sometimes it's a judgement call.
