Pendant lights made of natural materials are popular due to their unique earthy character and elegance. Out of these lights, there are lighting made of bamboo, rattan, stones, and even leaves. Each has its charm that elevates a space’s atmosphere and captivates any guest.
Wicker pendant lights are lighting made out of pliable twigs, often handwoven or arranged into beautiful shapes with intricate or grand details. They are often compared to rattan pendant lights as both of them are made of pliable wood. However, one distinct difference is that rattan pendants are made from palm wood, while twigs of all kinds usually create wicker pendant lights.
Zest Lighting offers our esteemed customers a handpicked range of high-quality wicker pendant lights suitable for any space. Hanging pendants made of twigs for your dining room, kitchen, office space, or living room are available for your selection. All units are available for shipping Australia-wide, with each wicker pendant light waiting to be admired in their designated space.
Pendant lighting made from natural materials brings a rustic appeal to any space. This is true even for pendant lights made from pliable twigs like rattan and wicker pendant lights. People often think they’re the same, and that is partially correct. After all, all rattan pendant lights can be considered wicker pendants, but the reverse is not the same.
Wicker pendant lights, in a broad sense, are made from malleable slender woody shoots. They’re usually taken from willow tree branches, but bendable shrub stems and thin, flexible branches from other trees can also create wicker pendant lights. With this in mind, rattan pendant lights, made from plaited or woven flexible palm stems, are also part of the wicker pendant lighting category. Therefore, next time you buy home decor lights made of wood, you won’t get confused with these two types.
The Wicker Pendant Light That Works Best For Your Needs
A casual area with an aged, rustic, or laid-back appeal best suits wicker pendant lights. However, they’re also very suitable lighting in other places of your home. To know if your chosen wicker pendant light will complement your targeted space, consider the following variables:
Size: Knowing the size of the room in which you’ll hang your wicker pendant light, as well as the ceiling variables (ceiling type, height, weight capacity), will help you determine the most appropriate pendant size for your space. You don’t want to buy a large-sized pendant light only for it to look overcrowded in your living room, right? So it’s best to plan appropriately and measure the area’s dimensions (length, width, height) correctly.
Location: Wicker pendant lights rock as interior lighting, but some undergo treatment processes and are doubly coated so that they can be used as outdoor pendants. Just make sure to double-check if your wicker pendant light is suitable to use in the location you want before purchasing it.
Room Ambience: As previously mentioned, wicker pendant lights introduce a rustic natural charm in a room. These lights can be used to accentuate beach vibes in a coastal-themed space or supplement an organic charm to a cosy, airy room. Better not add it to a retro-themed or luxury-styled area to not disrupt the atmosphere (but if that’s your goal, then carry away).
Design: Note that wicker pendant lights are often woven or plaited by hand, enabling one to be made in various forms. Also, depending on the style, there may be none to wide gaps in between each twig layer. Lastly, keep in mind that wood does not reflect light. With these, make sure to consider how you want your next wicker pendant light to look.
Colour: Wicker pendant lights, in their most natural state, have earthy brown shades that depend on the tone of the wood it was made. These pendant lights lack radiance and can make a room look small and dim, so it’s best to use them in open and bright spaces. A similar concern can be inferred for wicker pendant lights coated in dark hues like black and grey, while wicker pendants in light tones can introduce a fresh appeal to the room.
Positioning: This is related to location. Consider a person’s viewpoint when planning on exactly where to place your wicker pendant light. Hanging it too low or near eye level will make it look big to the onlooker. Similarly, if you want to put it in an area where it can be admired in two or more different elevated spaces, you’ll have to consider how it will look in those perspectives.

Do note that wicker pendant lights are still made of wood, so you need to know a few precautions and care instructions when deciding on buying them. Be prepared for constant and careful maintenance as wood is a material that can quickly rot, split, or warp when coming into unfavourable circumstances. Also, some wicker pendant lights may have materials that strongly react to typical light cleaning agents due to the wood’s sealing methods, so make sure to ask and research how to take care of your chosen wicker pendant light properly.
