If you asked a lighting designer what their go-to lighting fixture would be, there’s no doubt it would be a pendant. Light over a tiny nightstand? Light over a deep seating area that invites conversation? Light over the kitchen table where you sip coffee and check your Instagram feed? The answer is a pendant (or 3!)
A delicate poof of the palest gold floats over a dining table bringing delicate free form leaves and glass into the conversation. This gift of art and light is finding a big following as the trend toward living with fewer, more important pieces simply blossoms. It’s a new minimalism that brings art home.
We’re done with it. Done with the idea that a cheap knock off is going to “spark joy.” Oh yes, we’ve been watching Marie Kondo on Netflix! And in a moment that did spark joy, we decided to buy only what we really love. It’s a lesson I’m taking from many of the millennials we help through the lighting process here at Madison Lighting.
