These wonderful and beautiful pendant lights or sometimes called a drop or suspender is a light fixture with a single bulb and shade that will hang from the ceiling usually by itself! Glass pendants are the most common style but they can also feature shades made of metal, paper, or plastic.
Pendants lights can act as spotlights to highlight art and decor. And because pendant lighting hangs from the ceiling, it doesn't take up any valuable floor space.
Perhaps the most popular spot in the home for pendant lights is over the kitchen island or above the kitchen sink to as to not miss any dirty spots when washing the dishes. This is referred to as task lighting, where the light focuses on a single location instead of illuminating the whole room. To light up a bigger area, multiple pendant lights would need to be used and spread out over a space.
