Pendant light fittings hang down from the ceiling and direct light in a downward direction. They are usually suspended on a chain, rod or cord cable and hang like pendants on a necklace – not surprisingly, this is where they get their name. By bringing the light down from the ceiling they put illumination where it is needed. There are many different types of ceiling pendants to choose from and it is not hard to see why they are so popular. Pendant lighting can be used in all rooms of the home, for hospitality lighting too and even in certain outdoor situations.
Our Jaipur Lighting Collection features a selection of handcrafted ceiling pendants, table lamps and light shades made in India. These light fittings champion the local artisan techniques of small-scale producers located across India. No two lights are exactly the same – each one represents the work of an individual craftsman and the minor differences give an authentic ethnic character to the lights.
Translucent lighting provides a clean, uncluttered look where nothing is hidden. You are able to see through and beyond to view what is all around you with no barrier. This is not a new idea when it comes to lighting in the home but with the recent introduction of more attractive vintage light bulbs, this is one of the emerging trends in both lighting and interior design. In this blog we will be taking a look at both translucent see through lighting and some of the latest amazing LED light bulbs.
