Versatile and adaptable, pendants answer pragmatic concerns while satisfying aesthetic desires. They provide essential task light while adding flair. They’re kind of perfect like that. “Pendant” is a malleable term for a light that hangs from the ceiling but is not as big or bright as a chandelier. They can be staggered at different lengths over a kitchen table for a design-savvy look, used above a kitchen island, suspended next to a vanity mirror, or deployed pretty much anywhere else your imagination suggests.
