Luxurious Chandeliers to Light Up the Room

Chandeliers and pendant lighting are a great way to add sophistication to any room. Chandelier light fixtures emit a soft, glowing light that can create a soothing ambiance, making it ideal for rooms where family or friends gather. Whether you're looking to add an element of romance to a room or a bit of extravagance, a chandelier or pendant light can bring your room décor to the next level. Create a warm and inviting atmosphere with distinguished lighting designs from Bassett.

Chandeliers vs. Pendant Lights

Pendant lights are single lights and are generally suspended from the ceiling by a wire hidden by a rod or chain. You'll typically find these in smaller areas like small dining rooms, bars, counters, and islands. They come in many different styles and variations and are generally hung between 32" and 40" from the illuminated surface. We suggest you place smaller pendants over nightstands or end tables in the living room. You could also bunch them up in threes to create a visually stunning effect!

Chandeliers are more intricate and have multiple lights, usually suspended from a base in the middle. These are typically larger, more ornate, and better suited for larger rooms, like living rooms and bedrooms. Large chandeliers can also add a bit of drama to foyers and staircases.

Choosing the Right Lighting for Your Home

From rustic to contemporary, Bassett offers a timeless selection of pendants and chandeliers. Our chandeliers open up every room with chic sophistication and grace. A well-placed chandelier can steal the show, especially in a well-decorated space. Choosing the right design of lighting depends on several factors, including:

Room Theme

Every well-designed room follows a specific theme, and the design of your lights should follow that. The design of your pendant or chandelier should coordinate with the style of the rest of your room. Mismatching room decor may stick out and become an eyesore.

If your home has a contemporary edge, look for light fixtures with a bold, art-inspired design. Try a pendant with a glass shade to avoid taking up too much visual space for a more minimalist look. Or are you looking for something luxurious? We have high-end, opulent, and detailed chandeliers that match perfectly with our luxury, custom furniture options as well.

Color Temperature

Lighting sets a room's tone and adds a layer of color temperature to everything inside the room. Always consider which light bulbs and lampshades will best accent the room's theme. With a bit of extra money and time, you can even invest in smart lighting. Most smart light bulbs have variable color temperatures you can manually set, letting you choose what mood you want to set for each room.

Pendant and Chandelier Size

Size constraints will also narrow down your search. Make sure you choose the right size of ceiling light fixture to complement your room's dimensions and its existing furniture. Larger chandeliers are perfect for dining room settings, while small pendant lights are perfect for smaller spaces like offices, entryways, or bathrooms.

The Number of Lights

Sometimes one light isn't enough, especially for pendant lighting. You may need several pendant lights. For instance, you may have a peninsula and island in your kitchen that need lighting. You could put one or two over the kitchen island to light the granite countertop evenly, with a few lining the peninsula. You might also consider adding a pendant light for each seat of this area.

We recommend only one light in small areas, like a desk nook or a reading lounge. You can also get away with a curved floor lamp to arch the light over your shoulder as you read.
