There are some items that no matter how often you see them, you just love it, regardless. With Pinterest showing the popular home designs and trends, there are some home pieces that pop up again and again. In this post I’m going through some of the most popular pendant lights I’ve seen crop up.

1. Vertigo Pendant Lamp

The Vertigo light is the light that has taken over interior living room and dining room spaces. Designed by Constance Guisett it’s a light that makes a statement if the light is on or not. A fluid sculptural light that interacts with its environment.

3. Artichoke Suspension

A classic piece of design that has never been out of style. The Artichoke pendant light was dreamt up in the 1920’s by Poul Henningsen in a collaboration with Louis Poulsen. The pendant light was for a restaurant in Copenhagen, Denmark with a rose finish. Since then the Artichoke pendant transitioned into the home interior.

A big statement light and art piece in it’s own right. The original design pendant light is the most expensive on this list, starting out around £7,000.

4. Vitra Akari Pendant

The original paper shade designed by Isamu Noguchi, nicknamed “The Sun” because of it’s size and soft glow of light when turned on. A well known pendant shade that almost everyone is familiar with thanks to the home goods giant Ikea.

Noguchi designed his collection of paper shades from the 1950’s to the 1960’s. The Akari paper pendants have always remained a favourite in interiors to this day.

5. Crystal Bulb Pendant

Designer Lee Broom has transformed the everyday bulb into a decorative ornament light fixture. The light fixture uses a traditional technique of hand cut glass to create the pattern in the bulb. Inspired by the whiskey decanters and glasses.

A classic but modern style, used singularly or grouped.
