Please Note: We make every effort to ensure colors are represented accurately online. However, due the nature in which these lamps are crafted, slight color variations in stained glass are normal and help to make each lamp beautifully unique. Also, the appearance of the colors in the shade will be dependent on the lighting in the room. Cloth shades with a pattern may vary because of how the fabric is cut.
Pendant lighting can help define a space, like a seating area, making it more distinct since the lit area is distinguished from the rest of the room. Pendants can also be used to provide light right where you need it above a specific area, such as a kitchen table. A single pendant is ideal in foyers or entryways and two or more pendants can brighten up a dim hallway. The design of a pendant makes hanging one over a counter an easy lighting solution and above a bar is the perfect place to try a set of mini-pendant lights. Even consider adding a pendant above a vanity table or in a dressing area.
Types of lighting: Lighting falls into three categories: ambient, task and accent lighting. Well-lit rooms feature a combination of the three, allowing you to be comfortable without squinting or straining your eyes. The number and types of fixtures will vary with your room sizes, décor and personal preferences.
You have the perfect lamp and you've carefully chosen a shade for it, but what kind of light bulb should you choose? You may not think much about light bulbs, but the kind you choose has the greatest impact on the overall effect and effectiveness of your lamp. Many people make the mistake of buying a light bulb more powerful than they need for a particular lamp. This unfortunately can make a lamp so intense or distracting that it is rarely used. The simple solution to this problem is to use a smaller bulb. Most table and accent lamps require no more than a 60-watt bulb, even if they are rated for something much higher. While it's very important to never exceed the recommended bulb wattage for a lamp, there is nothing wrong with using a less-powerful bulb.
Aside from wattage, there are other factors to consider when choosing a light bulb. Light bulbs come in four basic types: incandescent, fluorescent, compact fluorescent and halogen.
