The Modern and Contemporary style evolved in the 20th century. Extraneous design and decorative accessories began to be phased out and simplicity began to dominate after WWI. Designers began to focus on form and function and support the new theory that less is more. Lines became cleaner, and designs became simpler as was historically necessary.
Lighting began to compliment a room rather than just brighten it. The Modern and Contemporary style became a pleasing design and emphasized practical advantages that propelled the movement forward to become the leading trend that it is today. Imagination and designs of fantasy evolved for lighting, new materials were being utilized to create a new form and standard of luxury and glamour. The glittering simplicity and geometry of polished metal combined with either glass, fabric or both took over and gave rise to the Modern and Contemporary Pendant Light.
Since the 1990s, lighting design has moved to become personalized and less unified. It has become flexible, proportionate and a form of relaxed elegance. Designers have also recognized the need to be environmentally friendly. Both designers and manufacturers alike are working to reduce emissions, consumed resources and waste while being innovative. The Modern and Contemporary Pendant style is pioneering this trend in both manufacturing materials and the light being created. LED Lighting and compact fluorescent lamping are technologies being utilized to help reduce lighting's carbon foot print. They can both be found as a lamping option for many of the Modern and Contemporary Pendant Lights available at Arcadian Home.

New Customer Review


I purchased two lights to replace my vintage 70's lamps in our family room. Shipping fast, price was the best on the internet and any questions I had pre-purchase were answered in detail & quickly. Easy to install. My only cons were trying to go green with the bulbs....stick with traditional if you need to dim and now we need to update the popcorn ceiling with all the uplight given off!
