Luxurious Chandeliers to Light Up the Room

Chandeliers and pendant lighting are a great way to add sophistication to any room. These are more stylish ways to add lighting than a traditional table or floor lamp. Create a warm and inviting atmosphere with distinguished lighting designs. Chandelier light fixtures emit a soft, glowing light that can create a soothing ambiance, making it ideal for rooms where family or friends gather such as dining rooms.

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. Place smaller pendants over nightstands or end tables in the living room. Bunch them up in threes to create a visually stunning effect. Larger chandeliers add drama to foyers and staircases.

Chandeliers vs. Pendant Lights

While chandelier lamps and pendant lighting used to be very similar, they now have very unique distinctions that make clearly different home decor items.

Pendant lights are single lights and are generally suspended from the ceiling by a wire hidden by a rod or chain. These are generally used 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.

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.

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 needs to follow that. The design of your pendant or chandelier needs to coordinate with the colors and style of the rest of your room. The mismatching room decor can stick out and become an eyesore.

If your home has a contemporary edge, look for light fixtures that have a bold, art-inspired design. For a more minimalist look, try a pendant with a glass shade to not stick out and take up too much visual space. 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 the tone of the room and adds a layer of color temperature to everything. Always consider which light bulbs and lampshades will accent the room's theme best. With a little 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 exactly what mood you want to set for each room.

Pendant and Chandelier Size

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

The Number of Lights

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

With a smaller area, like a desk nook or a reading lounge, we recommend only one. You can also get away with a curved floor lamp to arch the light over your shoulder as you read.
