If you were to ask me what trend is the most hot right now in the lighting industry I would have to say that Pendant lighting would take the top spot. What used to be a pretty dull category in the lighting world is now an exciting realm with endless choices. The style was mainly made up of glass bowl pendants that would shine up into a space, usually an entryway, dining room or family room with a tall ceiling. This type of fixture did not have much style and the glass choices were pretty limited. Once manufacturers started to use different materials they were able to create unique bodies and rims that did help to spice things up but selection was still small. What has happened since is an explosion in the pendant lighting fixtures market. Today, one the most popular items is the drum pendant. Drum light fixtures can have either a glass shade, a fabric shade, or a metal shade as the main focus of the light. With design trends steering toward more simple styles, drum pendants have become a main focus of designers and builders. Their simple style lends itself to a whole host of possibilities when it comes to glass and shade styles. New technologies have allowed them to print almost any pattern on fabric and cut any pattern out of metal that you could think of. Pendant lights come in every style you can think of, modern, traditional, transitional, rustic and contemporary. They are great for almost every area of your home, from the kitchen island and table to the entry way, a master bedroom to a kids bedroom, a family room to a bathroom. There isn't a place in the house that a pendant light fixtures wouldn't work, and with endless choices you can be sure that the perfect one is out there for you.
