Lighting has settled into fashion status in recent years—especially with the ever-popular pendants. These hanging fixtures can range in size from small globes just inches in diameter to large drum shades suspended on high. One of the freshest, most fashion-forward applications is bunching—grouping a trio or even quintet of pendants—all the same or a mix of shapes and materials. Follow our guide to learn how to hang lighting fixtures.
If your pendant lamps are used as bedside reading lights and need to hang close to the wall, a shelf bracket can do the trick. Brackets come in a variety of materials and colors, and are easily customized with a coat of paint, making this an ideal choice for someone who likes to get the details just right.
Get the popular industrial look for less. Very basic pendant lamps (even just exposed bulbs) can be rigged to vintage barn pulleys from the flea market for a high-end rustic look—on a budget. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can even swing by the hardware store to pick up the items you need to wire the bulbs on your own.
Including accent lights in built-in shelving is a great way to highlight special objects and accessories. In this room from Juliette Byrne, the eye is immediately drawn to the lit up shelves, making for a bright and beautiful focal wall.
