Pendant lights, also known as drop or suspended lights, are singular lighting fixtures that are suspended down from a ceiling above. Commonly hung individually over a single surface, or in linear arrangements comprised of multiple matching pendants, pendant lights come in a variety of design styles from minimal to attention-grabbing. Pendant lights are comprised of a chain, rod, or cord, a mount, a bulb, and a designed washer.
Pendant lights should be hung between 28”-36” | 71-91 cm above a countertop surface and customized to avoid obstructing views by the tallest people that may use the surface.
Pendant lights are commonly spaced between 30” -36” | 76-91 cm apart measured from the center of the fixture. Uniform lighting conditions should be achieved, but the spacing of pendant lighting is flexible based on the situation and context.
