What are Natural Timber Wooden Pendants Made Out Of
Please note that timber wooden lights are not made of the same material - each are made of different grades of wood, and therefore it's quality, longevity and finish differ depending on the wood used for that particular pendant light fitting. The cheaper wooden lights are made of plywood whereas the more expensive ones are made of real oak and then there is everything in between.
The different grades and quality of the wood used makes a big difference on the style, quality and cost of the fitting. Also, the environmental aspect of it should be considered too.

Timber pendant lights give out no ambient lighting. It is used purely for downward focused illumination and as a decorative addition to a standard metal pendant light. It is extremely practical when designed properly like in a dome, bell or cone shape. Due to it absorbing light, some designs fail to give out enough light if not designed properly. Other designs cast beautiful shadows through its absorption of light. Please keep this in mind when you are thinking of opting for a funky design and amble ambient lighting. Our Replica Pile Pendants are good example of a beautiful design that casts subtle shadows.
