Pendant Lights - Our Pick of the Best

The pendant light has become a modern day icon, a statement lone light fitting suspended from the ceiling by a stylish flex, often interwoven around a metal chain.

To create a visual statement pendant lights can be used in multiples, hung in a show-stopping cluster above a dining table or a uniformed straight line over kitchen countertops. Opt for industrial inspired designs to enhance a modern kitchen, or an elegant brass and linen combination to add a sophisticated touch to a contemporary living room. Whatever your style, we’ve found the perfect pendants to beautifully furnish any interior…
