Pendants can provide both task and ambient lighting. They are extremely popular and available in an unlimited range of styles, shapes and colors.
Equipped with shades or globes to avoid glare, they are suspended from the ceiling over kitchen counters, breakfast areas, game tables or other work areas. When used over bedside tables, they provide good task lighting and also free up the space occupied by table lamps.
The use of a dimmer provides you with the flexibility to vary the light to suit the occasion.
