Contemporary Chandeliers and Ceiling Fixtures

Contemporary Pendant Lights

If looking to update your kitchen or any other room in your house, lighting is an easy and relatively inexpensive way to update. Contemporary pendant lights can span a wide range of styles of lighting that can easily fit into most kitchens. Luckily, it is a design term used loosely and can include traditional contemporary lighting, rustic or vintage styles, as well as modern pendant lights. Many of these lights include glass bulb fixtures of varying shapes and sizes, most commonly a round clear bulb. Other versions include tinted glass with gold edging as well as vintage, glass blown effects. Additional contemporary styles feature wire and or wood framing around the light bulb, metal, concrete or woven shades. These styles can resemble an industrial, farmhouse, glamorous, sleek look and anything in between. Many of the colours used for contemporary pendant lights include black, brown, grey, white, clear, gold, silver and copper. Many of the lights are very geometric in shape such as circles, diamonds, octagons, cylinders and other more retro styled shapes. The pricing for these light fixtures can vary from very inexpensive to quite pricey depending upon the materials used and the designer that created the pendant or how you found it. If a pendant light is a found object, it is referring to something that came from an estate sale, old house and is a treasure among interior designers. These items tend to fetch a pretty penny.

Contemporary Chandeliers

Contemporary chandeliers are sometimes styled as a grouping of pendant lights into one fixture. These are similar in fashion to single pendant lights designed as geometric shapes, vintage inspired pendants and glass bulbs. Other versions of more modern chandelier fixtures are very simplistic in nature with a single beam of light or sleek shapes hanging from a rod. Many of these fixtures are too large to put in a kitchen and are more appropriate for a dining room or entryway. They make a great statement on their own and can create whatever type of mood or setting you want. Like with pendant lights, there are contemporary chandeliers that match your home’s decor and style to whatever look you want.
