Pendant lamps are the new chandeliers. Add lighting without all the fuss with eco-friendly pendant lamps.
Pendant lamps are hanging lighting fixtures that are less fussy than chandeliers. While chandeliers often take over a room, pendant lamps are more a part of the whole look–rather than the main focus. And while you are making lighting changes, you might as well choose more sustainable options. Choose from fixtures that are made from recycled materials, more sustainable materials, and those designed to utilize more energy-efficient lighting fixtures.
