Kinds And Material Of The Shades

The material of the pendants need careful observation too, a few of the kinds of material are listed below:

1. Ceramics bring that lovely, handmade essence to your room – and a really imaginative way to use them is in a hanging ceiling lamp

2. When it comes to hanging pendant lights that really make a clear, bold, elegant statement, nothing beats the glass

3. Metal is best for spilling warm buttery light around the place in a lazy sort of way

4. A crystal style can be placed on a multitude of frames sizes and shapes in a variety of materials, but all share one common denominator – crystal pieces.

5. Fabric shades are very attractive and create a softer and homier look than metal or glass alternatives. Fabric can be ideal for a bedroom

or other lounge-style area that is low-key and calm.

6. Wood and bamboo pendant shades exist as well and can work to create a good look in a country or cottage style rural setting. These materials can also work well for a cabin.

7. Acrylic has been coming back in a big way recently, with designers embracing the versatility of the material.

8. As a material for lighting, resin too has some very special qualities that set it apart from more traditional ones like wood and brass. It’s malleable, so we can experiment with unusual, almost organic shapes.

9. Roped fixtures look great in most spaces and are naturally stylish. Many of these fixtures are weathered.
