Pendant lighting is comparatively a baby in respect to other type of lights in the same category starting from the Huge Chandeliers. Actually if history is right, Pendant lights came into existence just as a useful substitute but a less detailed version of Chandeliers with almost same features and functionality. In fact it derived its name from pendant, a jewelry accessory.
A pendant light is also known as a drop or suspender. It is a lone light fixture that hangs from the ceiling, suspended by a cord, chain, or metal rod. Used by themselves, pendant lights present a striking feature to a room. More often they are hung in multiples in a straight line over countertops, dining tables, or bathrooms.
When we talk about pendant lighting, we are referring to a light fitting that is suspended from the ceiling by an electrical flex and has some sort of light source, i.e.light bulb and lamp shade attached at the other end. Really speaking, pendant lighting is not just one type or style of light fixture. It can refer to chandelier lighting or just plain paper globes. Both of these light fixtures fall into the very broad category of pendant lighting.
