The secondary lighting strategy for the room would be more task oriented. These lights illuminate specific areas of the room, such as a table lamp that can be used for reading when set next to a sofa or a floor lamp that illuminates a couple of chairs paired together. These lighting solutions are great for adding drama to a room, such as when you want to leave the general lighting off entirely or dimmed so that you can bring focus to certain areas. Pendant lighting works well for this too, particularly in the kitchen or dining room. That's because these lights, like spotlights in a theater, can be aimed to specific locations, such as the kitchen counter or the island in the center of the kitchen. Or they can be strategically located over the dining room table, replacing a traditional chandelier. If your dining room is large enough, you could also consider adding a second set of pendants over the buffet or sideboard.
Don't forget too that to be beautiful the stem of a pendant lampshade does not have to be really long. Shorter styles with stubbier tubes are reminiscent of the Edwardian and Art Deco eras and look contemporary and timeless at the same time. This is especially true if you can find a style that is shaped like a child's top, a trapezoid or deconstructed globe as these shapes are typical of this popular Mid-Century look in pendant lighting.
Pendant lighting is comparatively a baby in respect to other type of lights in the same category starting from the Huge Chandeliers. Actually if history is right, Pendant lights came into existence just as a useful substitute but a less detailed version of Chandeliers with almost same features and functionality. In fact it derived its name from pendant, a jewelry accessory. Its typical history dates back to 2700 B.C. It started with hanging lamps of clay with light given by an animal fat burn which was the way Greeks devised. As time past, clay lamps were replaced by Glass. In the 80s, European pendants began to appear with exclusive use of glass designs as pendants with attractive shades.
By its very nature, pendant lighting is very noticeable and therefore it is wise to choose your pendants with great care. Pendant lights can range from the most simplistic of designs to the more decorative and ornamental styles so ensure that the type and style of pendant light you purchase, is one that complements the decor of the room. As well as aesthetics, you will also want to see how much light your potential pendant light will give out. Its not just the type of bulb that you have that determines the quality of light given out.
