Pendant lights have been a staple in household design for centuries and is still the number one statement piece used in modern décor today. We use pendants to not only add additional lighting to our spaces, but also to create a decorative focal point to any room. In a recent project we designed for a bright condo located in Yorkville, we used an industrial pendant to balance masculine and modern features in the space.
We chose this pendant because of its industrial style and the matte black colour complimented the wainscoting on the room’s feature wall.
Additional elements of organic wood texture, a monochromatic colour scheme, metal hardware and the feature wall all tie space together.
We used a glass pendant in another room to both contrast and compliment the organic raw wood texture used in this custom barn board headboard we designed and had made, order here.
Another example of combining contrasting elements with the use of pendants was in the kitchen of a Trump Hotel residence we designed. We used an industrial washed pendant to contrast with the sleek and modern kitchen.
In this living room we used this one of a kind spider pendant as a statement piece. The modern silver bulbs balance with the industrial art in the background.
One of our favourite ways to accent our pendants is by combining a modern fixture with a ceiling medallion. Ceiling medallions have been around since the 1800's and paired with the right fixture, it becomes an unforgettable statement piece.
We love this feathered ceiling medallion that is on sale at Jacflash.
Below is an inspiration board pairing medallions and pendants, which liven up any cookie cutter room.
Until next trending Tuesday!
