The large crystal chandelier at the heart of the dining room is far from the norm these days with homeowners gravitating towards more exciting inventive and at times colorful options. From dazzling pendants to DIY creations that usher in a quirky twist today we take a look at that surprise you with their lighting choices.
The colorful eclectic and extraordinary world of pendant lights offers an unending bounty of glittering delights. While some seem trendy and cool others combine exclusive design values and distinctive style to offer the ultimate masterpieces.
We begin with sleek finds that enhance modern spaces. Make a big statement with a porcelain egg! This translucent porcelain pendant lamp comes from Etsy shop lightexture. While it appears white when not illuminated you can see in the photo below that its amber glow is sure to be the focal point of the room when darkness falls:
We did promise creativity and fun options and nothing is more fun than to be able to craft your own pendant light with things that you can get your hands on! A DIY pendant light can be something as simple as a wine bottle light that takes less than 10 minutes to make or a more dramatic and exclusive addition like an old theater light turned into an industrial ceiling lamp.
Starting off by first buying the table lamp and then trying to fit it into the bedroom or living room is not really a good idea. While it can work if you are lucky often the lamp would end up being too short tall or bright for the room.
Let the lighting fixture in your dining room play this role by bringing in an unexpected texture and outline to a carefully curated space. With stone glass and other sleek polished surfaces dominating most modern dining rooms a pendant that highlights a contrasting finish makes for a delightful addition indeed.
