Lighting is an inseparable part of any interior, irrespective of the style that has been used to design the furniture. While furniture is generally the focal point in a room, appropriate lighting provides the right ambience and “feel” to your home. Lighting can be recessed in ceilings and walls and lampshades of various kinds can be used to add that special touch. Every room should have adequate lighting and should have a dimmer function attached to it. This will help you to change the mood of a particular space when you need to. |
Table lamps can be placed on table tops to add dimension to the space and pendant lamp shades are a practical solution when you need a specific area lighted more effectively. Though that is the primary function of pendant lamp shades, a large number of shades are used as a style statement and have more of a cosmetic value. These are available in glass and metal finishes and can be either contemporary or classic. These shades hang from the ceiling via chains or wires and can be placed strategically either in a passageway or in the corner of a room.
You can also add dimmers to change the mood of the room when you want to and fluorescent, LED or halogen bulbs can be used. Pendants are popularly used to light kitchen islands. Some of these lamps can be very fancy and ornate like a black crystal chandelier. A piece such as this one can actually be the focal point of a room and the furniture can be built around it. It can illuminate the room just by the way it looks. It can sport a shabby vintage look or a more chic, contemporary one. A chandelier will generally have multiple arms and some hanging crystals and is never used in a corner of a room.
It will throw an equal amount of light right across the room. However, if the space that you are using it is very large, you will have to place some table or floor lamps in certain areas to lend more brightness. Since the glass or the fabric that covers a black crystal chandelier is black, the light that it throws will be subdued. Lamp shades that hang from the ceiling are never used in isolation. They add versatility to recessed fluorescent lighting that is used in the rest of the room. If the pendant lamps are small they can be used in clusters and you can hang a few of varying lengths to add dimension to a cosy nook in any room.
When you pick any lamp-base, ensure that the finish matches the rest of the furniture in the room. You can opt for bronze, steel, chrome, rattan or antique brass bases and use a shade that complements it. In some cases if the furniture lends itself to the concept, you can use lampshades of contrasting colors. Pay special attention to the size and shape of the pendant as a very large hanging lamp can overpower the rest of the furniture. No matter which pendant lamp you choose, make sure that it complements the rest of the room.
