They highlight the different zones of an open-plan layout, provide task lighting and add a chic, stylish look to the home.

Concrete pendant lights are hugely popular at the moment. They work well in minimalist and industrial style interiors. They are often left unpolished and the surfaces are beautifully raw and stippled.

7. Geometric lights

Antique style bulbs are just so beautiful that it seems a shame to hide them behind shades. See how these lights have been housed in an open, wire framed construction.

8. Nordic cool pendant lights

The best pendant lights are often composed of an odd number of lights in slightly varying shapes or sizes. The extension wire often turns into a decorative element as well. These cool Nordic pendant lights tick all these boxes!

These coloured lights have retro curves and a lot of style. They also add a very subtle colourful element to this interior. Note how they are all very slightly different in shape.
