Mission Style Pendants
The Stylishness of Mission Style Pendants
Pendant lights hang from the ceiling on a chain or cord, and are a popular homeowner choice as they are less expensive and more compact than chandeliers. They are very effective in providing task lighting in work spaces, and provide an attractive focal point in any room. Often these lamps are used to replace floor or table lamps, as their ambient light spreads softly over a greater area. The lamps are available in a variety of designs and styles, with Mission Style Pendants considered very attractive.
The Mission or Craftsman style of lighting finds its roots in the Arts and Crafts movement popular in the early 20th century. Lights have clean lines without superficial or unnecessary ornamentation. Purists looking for authentic designs will appreciate the feeling of a return to natural elements with the use of straight lines and wood tones. You will have a choice of several materials including glass, cloth and metal, and finishes such as brushed nickel and polished chrome. Mission lighting exudes a sense of calm, taking you back to a less frantic time before mass production and the advent of the machine.
