We’ve come a long way from the single-strand Edison light bulb 💡~


One of the first things I look at when entering a home is the lighting… whether it’s a pendant light, chandelier, sconce or table lamp.  Whatever you can imagine you can find these days – glass globes in all shapes and sizes, chrome, brass, wrought iron, natural woods, capiz seashells and a host of other ingenius materials!!  I’m always amazed by the creativity…which for me adds so much character and pizazz to a design style!


In addition to the large selection of handcrafted pendant lights offered by Kouboo… I found no shortage of great ideas for your interior design and personality!  Follow me from room to room as I share some of the unique as well as sophisticated options for pendant lighting in your home.

How beautiful is this entryway? The repetition of the windows and artwork balanced by the stunning row of globe pendant lights ending with the round mirror on the far wall is simply brilliant design. The pendant lights are the perfect addition. Photo: Studio McGee, Utah, Architectural Digest

This gorgeous navy blue and white kitchen is fabulous in it’s own right…but add these remarkable pendant lights into the mix and they are an artistic achievement on their own. Photo: Homepolish Interior Design; photog Julia Robbs

Kouboo’s wicker dome lights are the ultimate pendant light to compliment this expansive natural wood island. Natural elements of wood and rattan are sprinkled throughout this design for a warm, inviting feel. Photo: Kouboo

I love how the color of the natural wicker pendants flows throughout this kitchen design. Your eye flows from the lights to the bistro stools to the floor and back! Kouboo bell pendant lights and bistro stools. Photo: TheGuestHouseStudio on IG

A cozy dining room in a cottage-style house with turquoise accents and a rustic wooden table.

The stunning glass-and-seashell chandeliercustom made by North Carolina artist Louise Gaskill is the real focal point of this open concept space as it hangs majestically over the equally stunning round table. There are simply too many beautiful natural elements to catch your eye! Photo: House of Turquoise; Tiffany McWhorter

Bathroom in white tones, sink and modern black pendant lights

The simple light bulb has been updated with these black wire cages… reminding us in an updated way of “days gone by”. Lighting is an integral element to the design of a room. Photo found on Pinterest

After researching this post on pendant lighting, I’m definitely “jonesing” for new lighting in my little condo here in Phoenix, Arizona.  The problem is deciding on which style direction I would want to take!  Oh my – so many choices!  I hope you’ve enjoyed all this deliciousness as much as I have!  Please share with your friends, post comments and “like” as much as you want!  We never tire hearing from you… 😍
