Not only are pendant lights capable of adding style to any area, but they’re also excellent for illuminating workspaces, accenting design choices, and creating a cozy ambiance. Our list features fixtures that cater to a variety of aesthetics and budgets, with models that are handcrafted and hardwearing, and they'll accommodate a litany of bulb types and wattages, too. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

December 17, 2018:

How you choose the best pendant light will largely rely on the type of lighting you need, your budget, and your decor. For this list, we prioritized durability, functionality, and favored models capable of complementing a host of design schemes. Placed the Unitary Brand Antique at the top spot because it is simple to install and provides ample illumination, and added the Kira Home Coast due to its versatile lighting capabilities.

Born in Arizona, Gia is a writer and autodidact who fled the heat of the desert for California, where she enjoys drinking beer, overanalyzing the minutiae of life, and channeling Rick Steves. After arriving in Los Angeles a decade ago, she quickly nabbed a copywriting job at a major clothing company and derived years of editing and proofreading experience from her tenure there, all while sharpening her skills further with myriad freelance projects. In her spare time, she teaches herself French and Italian, has earned an ESL teaching certificate, traveled extensively throughout Europe and the United States, and unashamedly devours television shows and books. The result of these pursuits is expertise in fashion, travel, beauty, literature, textbooks, and pop culture, in addition to whatever obsession consumes her next.
