When it comes to pendant lighting possibilities pay attention to the type and style of furniture featured in the room. If muted colors and shades abound in your space it may pay to go big and bold with the lighting or you may choose to play it cool and sleek with an understated yet modern piece in silver or clear. Don’t assume that contemporary shades are only for contemporary rooms. There’s nothing more powerful than a modern statement in an unexpected place!
