5 Points When Choosing Your Contemporary Pendant Lights Diego

Concrete as a material started to be used thousands of years ago, the more notorious examples being those left by the Romans. Its worldwide notoriety started in the second half of the XX Century being the first and biggest influence through engineering projects such as bridges and highways, then architecture followed, producing one of the […]

If you want to create drama an over dimensioned pendant light can be the answer, whereas if you are choosing the pendant light above your kitchen island the dimension can be chosen according the size/proportions of the island worktop. For spaces/surfaces with contrasted dimensions (very linear for example) the amount of fittings is something that needs to be taken care of as well.

Lighting is one of the areas in interiors that requires special attention, both, from the functional and aesthetical point of view. There are so many options available that you can be confident you won’t need to sacrifice the beauty of your fittings for the quality of the light they produce. LEDs have created a priceless […]

Probably this is the most difficult approach as it relies a lot on the “taste” and “vision” of the designer. It is well known that shapes, colors and materials affect the way we perceive spaces. So if you want to reinforce a feeling of drama, cheerfulness, an austere look, funkiness or romanticism using specific pendant lights design the right outcome of it is going to be achieved thanks to the integration between space, furniture and the fitting itself.  It is the right understanding of all those factors that is the key.

Lighting is one of the areas in interiors that requires special attention, both, from the functional and aesthetical point of view.

The important point for me is that light makes sense and become something thanks to the context around it.

In a contemporary home we can have all sort of light fittings: down lights, surface mounted lights, feature lights, wall mounted lights, etc but regardless of all the technology at your disposal; even to the point where one can’t identify clearly the source of the light; pendant lights (and chandeliers in their sophisticated version) remain the most identifiable light source that appeals to our senses and memory giving us comfort and assurance.

Understanding the interior architecture of your home can give you clues in choosing the right pendant lights. Do you have a Victorian, Georgian, Tudor, Deco or a contemporary ceiling? Trying to replicate the spirit of the period implies that you will need to be very thoughtful as to the dimensions and how the furniture layout and its style will respond to the pendant fitting. For very strong architecture you can either work by contrast or similarity. When choosing by contrast you have a greater range of options but then quality and detailing will be much more noticeable and demanding.

However when at the breakfast bar and ready to enjoy what has been served on the table the light of the mini pendant lights allow you to discover all the colours, textures and patterns of the food in front of you.

There are so many options available that you can be confident you won’t need to sacrifice the beauty of your fittings for the quality of the light they produce.

Definitely this is the first thought one has, it has become the default one.

The concept of fashion is a complicated one as it involves at the same time those that create it and those that follow it, and the gap of time and space between those two is not a big one when it is in its developing phase. In interior design when something is fashionable we call […]

This is why if you gentlemen want to add a personal touch to your space pendant lights are a must.

Lighting is one of the areas that has been developed in an extraordinary ways in the last years affecting the way we live, work and think of light. LED is at the center of this big flux of change. Now light is not any more just an object we add to the scheme, it can […]

It is summer and many of us are going out and about looking for that green spot where to lay down, relax, share with friends and have that direct dialogue with nature and the sun. But you do not need to go out…. Many of you have gardens, right? For those that have their own […]

Once I developed the concept and the detailing of units, wall finishes, colours, etc it became clear to me that the pendant light should not be the star of the kitchen but the kitchen itself.

That is why I’m proposing this light from Artemide, a cluster of them.

Of all the variations available: recessed lights,  ceiling lights, wall lights,  floor lamps and table lamps the pendant light has become one of the favourite pieces for adding  personality, character and beauty to any space from the bathroom up to the living room.

Stairs and their surroundings (the Staircase) throughout history have been extremely important for expressing the dignity, taste and relevance of the owner of the house. This is why they were designed with such passion and attention to detail, choosing the best materials and the most dramatic effects for making a statement, a declaration of pride […]

If seen from the distance, due to their size, they almost disappear from your sight leaving you with the unreserved   feeling of enjoying the kitchen as a whole, its colours and finishes.

Periods that somehow relate to each other like international style and Scandinavian are more tolerant to the mixing of pieces because their lines, colors or shapes work well in both contexts. Same does happen with other styles.

Lighting is probably one of the most important elements to decide upon when working on your interiors. In a contemporary home we can have all sort of light fittings: down lights, surface mounted lights, feature lights, wall mounted lights, etc but regardless of all the technology at your disposal; even to the point where one […]

LEDs have created a priceless freedom for lighting designers as they do not have the limitations of designing their pieces around the dimensions of the “bulbs” or lamps. It is about understanding what kind of light is required and the shape of the container that brings that light to life.

How many times have we seen pendant lights that are too big or too small for the space? Unfortunately there is not a rule that can tell you what one is the right size for the dimensions of your room.  Again “common sense”, good taste and a very clear concept will help you to find the correct one.

Lighting is probably one of the most important elements to decide upon when working on your interiors.

If pendants lights or chandeliers go above dining tables, kitchen islands, bed side tables, Kitchen Island, etc the chances are you can have them as there, generally, is no problem with the height. If you have them in corridors, living rooms, etc. the problem is that you need to be able to walk and not hit your head.

The eye went from the macro…to the micro… the light is taking you to that journey.

This is probably the safer option as the pendant light will fit much more easily when sharing the same language and style of your interiors whether it is sleek contemporary, shabby chic, country, modern, Scandinavian or any other.

In one of the kitchens I’m working on I’m proposing the breakfast bar to be at the centre of the space (literally…OK…almost ).

For me this one is one of the few rules that should be always followed in relation to pendant lights: If you do not have enough height please DO NOT use them.  Now you can ask what the right height is.  I cannot answer that in cm or inches as it depends on many factors but as a general guidance the right height is the one that doesn’t make your pendant look out of place either because it dwarfs  the space or because the lead is too short causing a lack of proportion in the general look.

The point to be considered does not need to be the breakfast table but what is around it and how that pendant light can add value to the proposal as a whole and to the enjoyment of the space.

Producing light for pushing dark away shows human inventiveness. It started from the moment fires were made using natural and basic reactions like the spark produced when striking one stone with another. In this first basic way of lighting a room, there was: The light produced by the flame, the fuel that allowed it to […]

Metals have been an important part in the history of human kind and its widespread use embraces different areas:  construction, defense, decoration, accessories, flooring, clothing, technology, art and furniture among others. The appeal of metals, beside their strength, has its roots probably in their association with fire, the element that tames and shapes them. Forging […]

That is the decision that I faced when I had to propose a pendant light for this kitchen in particular.

A very important part in the interior design process is the choosing of the light fittings. Some of the aspects to consider are: _Kind of light you want: warm, cold _Source of light you want/need: direct or indirect light _Function of the light: task light, feature light, ambience light _Surface to be used: wall, ceiling, […]

Pendants lights can be extraordinary pieces, the well chosen and installed ones are not just going to look fantastic by themselves but are going to make the space look great as well.  It’s then when you know you have got it right.

This scheme is the perfect excuse for having an impressive pendant light that can add the wow factor to the space making the room look more impressive.

The work on the surface of the pendant is so attractive that when you are looking at it from the short distance it forces you to admire its particular and almost humble beauty.
