Factors to Consider when Selecting a Feature or Statement Pendant Light
Modern vs Contemporary: Many think that modern and contemporary designs are the same and are used as synonyms when describing many things. However, the reality is that technically there's a world of difference between modern and contemporary in design. We prefer to use them as synonyms due to our customers understanding of the words, but we will like to take the opportunity here to explain the difference between the terms before moving on to contemporary lighting styles.
In short, modern design refers to an era that has passed, while contemporary design is all about the now and the future. The most popular modern design era is the mid-century modern era of the 1950s and 1960s. Think - the modern art movement of the 20th century, informed by Scandinavian and German Bauhaus design. The distinct style focused on simple form and function, which are valued as equals under this style.
Unlike modern design, contemporary design doesn't refer to a specific period of time—it's constantly evolving to reflect the popular styles of present day design. It borrows qualities from modernism, minimalism, Art Deco, and other global styles, without hyper-focusing on any one in particular.
Traditional vs Modern: Traditional pendant lights are a bit more formal or ornate, these refined lighting fixtures feature intricate details and thoughtful design which add sophistication, warmth, and richness to a space. Traditional design is very different from modern design in the way it uses ornate patterns while modern design focuses on minimalistic prints and patterns. The traditional design focuses on detail and lots of it.
Choosing the style of the statement pendant light is more of personal preference, but just be sure the lighting piece flows with the rest of your interior design.
The space you’ll be fighting is the second important thing you need to consider when choosing a statement pendant light. When you know where the light is going it helps determine the size of the fixture and how much light you’ll need. Also, think about the additional table or floor lamps you’ll be incorporating, if you want the ability to dim the lights, how much natural light the room has and the size of the room.
Keep in mind larger spaces need more light than smaller ones. If the room has lots of natural light, selecting a lighting fixture that doesn’t give off much light may not be a problem. But if it doesn’t have much natural light, you want to make sure to layer your lighting and choose overhead fixtures that give off plenty of light.
In design, there’s a practical purpose for everything, but that doesn’t mean your fixtures have to be subtle or go unnoticed. Don’t be afraid to choose a bold and dramatic light but keep in mind that the piece flows with the rest of the design. And if you’ve looked around and the space still feels something’s lacking, a statement light might be what your space needs. It’s a fabulous way to show off your style and personality.
Whether you’re creating a moody space or dimly-lit, or one that’s bright and energizing, lighting is a key element of creating the room’s ambiance. The fixtures have to provide enough light in the space so you can see, but that doesn’t mean things can’t be visually stunning at the same time.
