A pendant lamp may remind you of a chandelier because it hangs from the ceiling, but they are typically smaller and more understated than a chandelier. Pendant lamps may be hung from a chain or a stiff rod. Flushmount pendant lamps are installed directly into the ceiling. A pendant lamp is great because it lights a room without taking up space on any of your surfaces!

When looking for the perfect pendant lamp, keep in mind there is one to suit your needs. Whether you prefer one that looks like an old fashioned lantern, a modern looking pendant lamp or an industrial style one, there's one for you! Some pendant lamps have one light, while many of them have multiple bulbs to offer a certain look or style.
Hanging Lamp Sizes
There are many sizes of hanging lamps available. Flushmount lamps may be just 6 to 10 inches tall, but other hanging pendants could have a height as much as 48 inches. There is every size in between as well. Find the lamp for your space whether you've got tall ceilings and plenty of space, or a small space with low ceilings.
