Transitional Pendant Lighting

Design Tips:

  • Pendant lighting can accommodate any type of ceiling height or angle because the pendant stem length can be increased or decreased.
  • Consider purchasing a pair of pendants for increased task lighting and design symmetry.
Transitional Pendant lighting is the intersection between Traditional and Modern-Contemporary design. It connects what has been done with what is being done right now. It represents the here and now while embracing new traditions and simultaneously paying homage to old ones. It features a single or multi light fixture hanging from the ceiling that creates a hybrid between traditional and contemporary style while lighting a living space.


The Transitional Pendant Light usually has a traditional frame that supports an oversized glass or fabric shade. The glass shades may be inverted or feature the classic bell or domed shape. Fabric shades come in an assortment of colors and textures. Both glass and fabric shades can be used in a design either as a diffuser or for aesthetic appeal. Some may feature different combinations of metals, glass or fabric to make unique transitional shades. The Transitional Pendant utilizes minimal accents to produce a balanced look which easily incorporates in both traditional and contemporary designs thus contributing to a casual style.


Use of the Transitional Pendant varies upon application and need. Its various sizes can make it applicable in dining rooms, nooks, entry ways, foyers, outdoor walk ways or patios. A simple and elegant pendant can greet guests by offering bright, warm light. A fabric shade pendant can be the perfect corner pocket fixture, offering abundant task lighting for curling up to a good book. Or an unobtrusive transitional pendant can hang above a welcoming reception desk offering both design and general lighting. Utilize Transitional Pendant lighting to contribute to a design scheme rather than be the primary focal point.


Within Arcadian Home's collection, there is an overabundance of Transitional Pendant lights for you to choose from including a multitude of manufactures like Savoy House and many others. Each brand has a variety of styles, forms, colors and shapes to choose from. The difficulty is choosing just one.

Transitional Style is an update on the classic with a twist on contemporary and a new interpretation of traditional. In lighting design it refers to the blend of traditional and contemporary styles while incorporating less ornamentation, while not being overly simplified. As a result transitional pedant lighting is clean, enduring, and fresh.
The curves of a transitional pendant intersect with straight lines to deliver symmetry which creates balance between the masculine and feminine scales of design. A lack of ornamentation and decoration keeps the focus on simplicity and sophistication of the overall tone and style. Unlike contemporary, transitional style emphasizes practicality to meet the lifestyle of an active household. Mixing styles does not always work, but transitional pendant lighting has become more and more popular in progressive home decor as the axis in merging both desirable designs such as elegance and edgy. Combining modern and traditional styles achieves simplified sophistication and produces the transitional design which is both enjoyable and trendy. A transitional room has pieces that are clean-lined or have rounded-edges and keep decoration and accessories to a minimum to create the perfect combination of traditional and contemporary. Mix a little bit of traditional and a touch of modern by incorporating a Transitional Pendant light in your home, making it a classic while remembering the importance of traditional.
For example in the picture to the left, the design of the kitchen combines elements that are both modern and traditional with very little ostentatious and garish accents. The white and polished stainless steel combination is modern while the wooden floor and paneled walls and cupboards are traditional. The simple decorative pieces adhere to the same principles including the two Hinkley Lighting Meridian Transitional Pendant Lights. The fixtures combine Brushed Nickel; subdue curvature and subtle lines with a traditional white glass diffuser. They become design pieces that contribute to the room without being the primary emphasis. In addition, there are no other sources of light aside from natural daylight leaving the pendants as the main source of task lighting. The practical application makes these transitional pendants perfect for the design. They are neither overwhelming nor underwhelming and simultaneously functional. They help bring together two styles of design and shine in more ways than one.
Transition from traditional to contemporary or merge the two together with a timeless Transitional Pendant Light.

Q & A of the Day

  • Hi, I am wondering if you have to use the chain and the stem...or can you just hang the light with the stem? I don't want to use any chain to hang this over my kitchen sink.
    Holly Jul 18, 2012
    I was informed by Sea Gull Lighting's tech department that this pendant light can be hung on the cord itself, with out the chain or the stem.
