10 Striking Pendant Lights to Light Up Your Living Space

The popular lighting for our parents and their parents to have were chandeliers. Don’t get me wrong, I love chandeliers! But they aren’t always practical. Some people (like me!) might not have enough space for a huge chandelier. And so our generation has the pendant light! Pendants allow for great lighting in spaces like over a counter top or dining room tables, or even hanging over your favorite armchair in the corner of your living room. You can even get pendant lights that come in a cluster so they are almost chandelier-inspired. If you haven’t embraced the pendant, I highly recommend you do. Check out these 10 unique pendant lights for your home!
