Style Guide: Pendant

With globes suspended from wires covered with metal or cloth, or threaded through chain link, this style is a good choice for rooms with ceilings 11 feet or higher. Typically 12 to 36 inches long, pendant fittings can be ­adjusted by trimming the rod or removing links, or custom ­ordered. Pendants look striking singly or grouped in threes; just be sure to hang them so the bottom of the shade sits 40 inches above a kitchen prep area or 35 inches above a dining table.
