My guide to some of the very best & unique designer pendant ceiling lights.
Choosing a pendant ceiling light is a crucial part of the design in any space. Let’s say you have spent much time, effort and money decorating, renovating and refreshing a room, ceiling lighting is often the last piece of the design to be put in place, it is also an often overlooked chance to bring your new room to a whole new level in terms of design and splendour, ok “splendour” may be overstating it but the right choice of ceiling pendant can be not just the crucial illumination of your new space but can also add to and lift the interior with an eye-catching centrepiece that will take your eye high and wide allowing your room to be viewed completely starting from the top to the bottom.
There is a huge range of ceiling pendants available on today’s market, large DIY shops sell large ranges of ceiling lights that are often very similar in design and finish and don’t add anything unique to the choice available to you. Online there are some large retailers of homewares who offer a good range of what is called designer lighting, much of this lighting is very good and will do a good job and will also look ok. But what if you want something really unique, something different that will really be the statement piece that finishes off all your hard work and time and provides the “wow factor” when you first walk into your space? Luckily there are some fantastic UK companies who have decades of experience in hunting down materials and incorporating them into their own unique designer ceiling light designs.
I am going to show you some of my favourite unique designer pendants from one of these companies called Graham & Green. Graham & Green is an independent family run business which started way back in 1974 with its first shop in the now trendy Notting Hill in West London. The company started its online business in 1999 and has now gained a reputation for offering unique and beautifully designed quality homewares at an affordable price. Graham & Green have a fine range of lighting including these beautiful and of course unique designer ceiling pendants.
