Choosing the perfect pendant for your space is a decision with consequence. Unlike lamps, which you can move around and swap as your heart sees fit, pendant lights can feel a little permanent. They usually require a call to an electrician (unless you're particularly skilled in that department) and they aren't so easy to install or remove. The careful consideration of finding the perfect pendant lighting for your home is one worth pondering over.

There are a few things to consider when choosing the perfect pendant lighting. What room is it going in, what size should you shop for, what kind of lighting are you looking to cast? Once you have a clear idea in mind of what you want (and the budget you're willing to spend) time for the fun part: shopping around. We've made this process 100% times easier and more exciting by handpicking the very best modern lighting pendants on the market—ranging from $99 all the way to $67,000. We guarantee there's something in here for every taste and every wallet.
