Pendant Lights: Why They Work

Pendant lighting is now an essential design element in almost all modern Australian homes. These gorgeous lights are functional pieces that illuminate the area to your desired intensity, creating a unique ambience. Over the last few years, we've seen a rise in the number of homeowners choosing pendant lighting over other lighting types. 

Read on to learn more about pendant lights – and why we love them

What are pendant lights?

Pendant lights are light fixtures that suspend from the ceiling. Available in a range of sizes, materials, and designs, pendant lights add style and elegance to any space. Let's not confuse pendant lights with chandeliers. While both lights are suspended from the ceiling, chandeliers have multiple branches and lamps, while pendant lights are typically singular.

Advantages of pendant lights

We adore pendant lights and how they have revolutionised the modern lighting industry. Here are the top benefits of switching to pendant lights.


One of the biggest reasons pendant lights just work is their adaptability. By adjusting the suspension or how high it is hung, you can change a room's feel, and with the huge range of styles and designs available, there is a pendant light for almost every location.

Easy to install

Installing pendant lights or replacing the current lighting with a pendant option is super easy. Many pendant designs fit straight over your existing batten fixture. There's no damage to your ceiling when installing a pendant lamp. Their easy installation lets you have your pendant lights hung as soon as you get them home.

Directional illumination

With their suspension-style feature, pendant lights are one of the best ways to illuminate your space. They offer sophisticated lighting, which allows you to make the best of your space.


Pendant lights create the perfect ambience in a modern Australian home. They offer simplicity and sophistication and highlight important aspects of your space. From ultra-modern slimline options to magnificent attention grabbers, pendant lights are the ultimate in-home lighting.

Even better, pendant lighting is suitable for all sorts of indoor spaces:

  • Living rooms, kitchens, dining areas
  • Restaurants and cafes
  • Clubs and bars
  • Libraries, schools, and working spaces.

We love how pendant lights add a special touch to any room. They add style, glow, engagement, and, more importantly, creative decor. Don't be afraid to mix styles. Create a unique aesthetic that is totally your own.
