Vintage lighting - the new lighting on the block
Vintage lighting - suddenly popular but why?
It would seem that the trend for vintage lighting has well and truly overflowed from restaurants and bars into homes via the many lighting manufacturers now creating lights in all shapes and sizes. With popular programmes such as Downton Abbey and Ripper Street featuring period furnishings and lighting it is no wonder people are attracted to these new and interesting designs.
Whether you love or hate them you cannot help but be intrigued by the many variations. There is something interesting about a caged light with a decorative lamp that draws the eye yet it might not fit into every design scheme within the home. The best option is to choose something minimal, perhaps in metal, for your kitchen and see how you feel with the industrial look. If you are feeling ultra brave there is always the option of an ironwork ball or a laser cut hexagon - think they will stick out like a sore thumb in your room? Wait until you turn them on you will soon think otherwise! The beauty of an intricate pendant is that the light will shine out and cast great shadows and patterns on your ceilings and walls.
Our current favourite is the joined arm ceiling light which has five arms, this is great for directing light around the room and although brown it looks great in either an ultra modern or more traditional room.
Of course there you should not forget that vintage does not always mean ironwork and industrial styling - glass lighting can also be vintage and looks splendid when used in a kitchen creating a soft light.
So whether you are a fan of vintage or prefer the sleek modern look, take a moment to consider whether you are missing out on something just that little bit more interesting...
What's a pendant light?
When you require a pendant for your home it's really hard to know what to search for as there are so many options available. Once upon a time in an era when a pendant was a single flex with a shade the only choices that had to be made were what colour fabric! Now there are so many options it's difficult to know where to start.
A pendant light is, normally, one single flex with either a bare lamp or shade fixed to it. The choices are however still endless! The flex could be braided or coloured and fixed - also not every suspension is the same length! You will need to consider:
- the wattage for the area the pendant is being installed in
- the style is the room - traditional or modern?
- the ceiling cable point - will you need a ceiling rose to cover a large hole?
- the construction - glass, metal, plastic or bare lamp?
- the function of the pendant - is it the only light in the room?
- the cost - budget no option or cost conscious?
- the length - does the pendant need to be a particular length? Can it be adjusted?
Once you have thought about these you can start to browse and begin to sort through what might be appropriate for your needs. Remember you can choose to view the products with prices low to high or high to low.
There is also the option of installing a ceiling fitting which, whilst having a single rose/cable entry point, may have several arms extending from it which is great for adding additional light if you only have the one fitting in the room.
Whilst there is a large, sometimes, bewildering, choice of pendants finding one suitable for your space should be a fun experience - be a little daring, choose something different and then sit back, relax and enjoy your choice!

Ceiling Pendant Light Fixtures & Fittings
Pendant lights are an evolution of a fairly basic lighting principle; hang a light from the ceiling in the middle of your space and you will get a good distribution of light in the room. Thankfully for the modern home the deign has evolved into something more aesthetically pleasing and there are thousands, if not millions, of pendants to choose from.
Whilst one pendant is great, remember that multiples work well too. Also do not think a pendant should be in the centre of a room, many hotels are hanging pendants over a bedside table which looks so stylish. There is also a trend for grouping pendants together and creating a multiple flex light - another great design trick.
