The right lighting truly can make or break a room. One of my favorite ways to bring light to a space is through decorative pendants and lanterns. Carefully considered fixtures are not just visually interesting, they also create a lovely and warm layer to your lighting scheme.

Here are a few of our favorite expertly crafted pendants and lanterns that are sure to catch your eye!


Tom Dixon is a lighting master, which these closely spaced pendants in warm copper make evident. I absolutely love the contemporary nature of these fixtures and the fun, round, shape.


These Darlana lanterns by Circa were perfect for our client’s kitchen. They provide wonderful light over both islands, are large in scale so they feel substantial but, at the same time, are light and airy so they don’t look heavy.


The metallic finish of these pendants by Arteriors injects an unexpected color and material into our client’s crisp, bright, and neutral kitchen.
