TYPES OF HANGING LIGHTSThere are many types of hanging lights to choose from when styling your interiors, including chandeliers, pendant lights and lanterns. A hanging light is any light attached from the ceiling using a cord, chain or rope, and designers often style this hanging light hardware to compliment the design of the light itself. Suspended light, such as a pendant light above a table or kitchen island lighting above a counter, is a smart lighting solution that can bring a fresh feel to spaces that need practical light for working and other activities. And when a hanging light takes the form of an elegant chandelier, it can evoke a sense of drama and tradition, brightening the areas of the home where you and your family spend important moments together.
