Looking to spruce your lighting game up? One word for you. Pendants. With a little inspiration, they’re a fantastic way to make your lights standout in a room. Here are our 10 creative ideas to style your ceiling lights.
01/ Pulling together multiple pendants in a chunky knot is super easy to execute and creates an instant stylised look.
02/ It might take a bit of time to master, but a loose and organic cluster is great fun to create and can make use of lights all over the room.
03/ Put your hairstyling skills into work and braid those cables! The result is even more striking with different colour cords.
We love these effortlessly intertwined cables contrasting boldly with the Kayan 3D printed shades.
04/ A really easy solution to transform the look of a plain straight cable: loop the cable into a simple hoop, like Tokyo-based interior store Sempre.
05/ For nimble fingered creatives, try replicating these lovely decorative knots – the work of Czech lighting designer Jakub Velinsky.
06/ Macramé is a fun way to embrace a more bohemian chic approach. And it’s also super easy. Watch our step-by-step video tutorial if you fancy recreating the style.
07/ Another big challenger in our ‘10 creative ideas to style your ceiling lights’ are decorative ceiling hooks.
The ‘Little Bishop’ from Hunter & Richards is a modern take on the traditional ceiling hook, becoming as much an element of decor as the lamp itself. Or you can try the snazzy new Plumen Ceiling Hook.
09/ Botanic displays always tug on our heartstrings.
We like the sporadic floral touches from this delicate scene, using the ever popular air plants which can grow—and thrive—without soil.
For a temporary and standalone piece (at a wedding for example) you can pull out all the stops and create something truly magnificent. Check out Ivy Muse’s green chandelier, who adorned the cord of our Drop Cap Pendants with a stunning green cover.
10/ Last but not least, beads. They can be a great way to give your pendants some love, especially in kids’ spaces.
Below is the work of Indian designer and Red Dot award winner Nishi Chauhan, who ornamented her lighting pendants with giant, colourful beads.
