The history of the Inverted Pendant follows the same path as the pendant light which has always been a symbol of artistry and wealth. The first pendant lights were fashioned of clay, terracotta or metal, and each was illuminated by candles. Their function was to provide light in dark spaces. As technology progressed, lighting designers began to incorporate more than functionality in their designs and pendant lighting began to captivate and simultaneously brighten the world around them. Layers of cut glass combined with metal, including iron, brass and bronze, were made to become shinning sources of light. Utilizing glass was a monumental step in the history of the pendant because it changed the direction light could be casted and set the foundation for the Inverted Pendant to become popular and widely used. Today Inverted Pendants are more than functional. Their purpose has been elevated to not only brighten but also to enhance a living space. How does an Inverted Pendant enhance a living space?
Inverted Pendants take the light they provide and project it upwards and outwards rather than focusing the light on a specific area. This type of lighting is known as ambient lighting. Ambient lighting is the general lighting of a living space that enhances the atmosphere and facilitates interaction amongst families, guests, friends and professionals. For this reasons, Inverted Pendant lights are great for use in family rooms, dining room or any room that has a large volume of people. Inverted Pendants are further amplified when combined with other lighting such as task or spotlighting. When working together, these types of lighting become inviting and productive.

The light fixture features a simple frame and oversized inverted dome glass bowl. The simplicity of the fixture and materials that it is made of make it a Modern and Contemporary Pendant. It cast light upward and outward working in conjunction with recessed lighting to create warm general lighting and focused task lighting where it is needed. This is a great example of how an Inverted Pendant adds to a design and makes a living space more inviting without sacrificing style or functionality.

Q & A of the Day

  • I like this light, but would like a different hanging option rather than a chain. Is there a way to use a solid column on this?

New Customer Review

Funky 60s looking light

This is an exception pendant light for the price. When it arrived it looked so much better than the picture. It is of high quality and has a very 60s vibe to it. The glass is a beautiful marble glass bowl and the gold-tone colors look very chic rather than cheap. Great quality for the price from Arcadian and they are very customer oriented.
