Glass pendant lighting has been around for decades. However, coloured glass hanging lights such as green glass pendants have just begun dominating the latest craze in home and commercial lighting design. Hence, if you want to be “one with the crowd”, add green glass pendants among your probable options on your next suspended light fixture shopping spree.
Green glass pendant lights cover all shades of green - from the darkest ones bordering black to the palest of all shades and everything in between. Due to their foundational tint that is similar to mother nature’s colours, green glass pendant lights are the beloved go-to lighting of plant lovers and homeowners and renters that want to bring the appeal of natural settings into their city homes and flats.
Zest Lighting welcomes you to browse our collection of green glass pendant lights. They come in various shapes and sizes suitable for most trendy interior and exterior design styles.

Glass pendants have been one of the popular options for home and business hanging lights for the past decades. Their various shapes and sizes are adaptable to multiple indoor design styles, from classic vintage to modern contemporary interiors. Clear glass pendants, for example, are meaningful choices for bright and reflective lighting in living rooms and offices. Now, we've added a new glass pendant collection that is both funky, stylish, and functional for many spaces - green glass pendant lights.
On Making Green Glass
Manufacturing green glass for commercial use follows the basic procedures for manufacturing other glass types. Depending on the factory or technique in question, glass can be made by repeated processes of heating, drastic cooling, pressing, blowing, and blasting combined substances. The suitable materials and equipment, coupled with total concentration, dedication, and skills, are required to finish one glass product, which can take a few hours up to a couple of weeks.
The degree of "greenness" in natural green glass is highly influenced by the colouring ions added to the original glass mixture. For example, the bluish-green tint in glass is produced by iron oxide impurities, which were mixed with chromium to create a richer green colour. Chromium with iron oxide can produce dark green to black tones at higher concentrations. On the other hand, chromium mixed with adequate proportions of tin oxide and arsenic can make an emerald green glass colour. Adding uranium or didymium to the standard glass mixture can also produce a green-coloured glass. However, this is seldom used to create green glass for residential and business establishments since its powder version is carcinogenic.
Our green glass pendant light collection isn't entirely made up of glass light fixtures that are produced to have a green colour. Some have clear glass shades which were coated, covered, or painted with green-coloured materials. Read the product descriptions carefully to determine whether your chosen green glass pendant is made from glass turned green during the manufacturing or finishing stage.
Locations for Green Glass Pendants
Due to the green glass' colour and translucent properties, these pendants are often considered decorative lights more than lights that provide functional illumination. Nonetheless, these pendants, especially those with pale green shades, can still serve their practical lighting purposes. Below are a few of the locations where a green glass pendant can emit its charm while providing ambient light to its surroundings:
Kitchen Islands: Pendant lights are always warm additions to kitchen countertops and bars. A series of green glass pendants installed at precise placements, in particular, can strike an inviting balance between a cosy and homey ambience and modern furniture and style.
Reading Nooks: It's always incredible to see anything nature-related after a reading session. Placing bonsais and flower pots in corners of your reading nook is a great choice; however, it's not always feasible. If you can't use plants, a great alternative is surrounding yourself with nature-coloured furniture and decor. Walls painted in beige or white, pale blue and grey couches, hardwood console tables in natural varnish, paired with green glass pendant lights, a ceramic table lamp, and a matching floor reading lamp - doesn't a space like that feel cosy, healing, and at peace?
Bedrooms: Placing green glass pendant lights in your bedroom is an excellent decision if you want hanging lights that aren't particularly striking yet still produce ambient light. Installing them in pairs on either side of the bed is the most common action done by renovators, but they will also look stunning over your vanity table or near your sitting area.
