Although perhaps not the easiest thing to change if you’re anything like me, adding new lighting to your rented property can completely change the look and feel of it. Today I wanted to bring together ten of the best gold pendant lights, ranging from the top end of the budget at £225 through to a more affordable – actually, scrap that – a complete steal at £15.
There are so many lighting stores online and on the high street that choice really isn’t a problem anymore – especially with shops such as George at Asda and Matalan really upping their interiors game. 2017 has definitely been the year of the rise in great quality and trend-led supermarket homeware.
Gold pendant lights really came into their own when mid-century-modern became the buzzword on everyone’s lips. Geometric shapes, long drop pendants and cylindrical frosted globes are all key style elements you need to be looking for if you want to invest in this lighting story. Remember to consider the size of the room before you buy anything – check the measurements and if you can, draw a mock-up and hold it in the space to check it’s not overpowering or too small.
Having one central light can make a real statement, but I love the effect of having three pendant lights hanging together. This look always works especially well in a kitchen, whether that be over an island or in a dining area.
If you’re on the hunt for the perfect gold pendant light, then look no further sugarplums. Today I’ve brought you nine of the best from the high street, including good old BHS – the king of mid-budget lighting if you ask me. If you were to ask me to choose a favourite, it would have to be number eight. I mean, just look at that symmetry people. It would look amazing in the centre of a six-seater industrial inspired dining table.
Is this a trend you’d like to add to your home? I’d love to know what you think and if any of these designs catch your eye?
