Space Transformation: Pendant Lights and the Element of Art / by esquestudio

A unique characteristic of handblown glass is its ability to transform the atmosphere of a room while providing functionality simultaneously. Many times when we speak to clients they are looking to add an element of art to their space. As we head into the new year and endure the dreary months of winter, its important to understand that fresh starts can often extend beyond personal goals. Now is a great time to not just transform yourself, but transform your space. Painting a room, swapping out pillows and rehanging art all make a difference, but one of the easiest and often overlooked transformations can come from changing the lighting. 

Lighting is an element of your space that can change the entire mood and style. One design trend we are starting to see more often, is decorative lighting, such as the Pendant Light. Whether you rent or own, swapping out a generic fixture for a pendant is an easy update that can set the stage for a room. With numerous options, adding the perfect pendant brings an element of art and style and is sure to brighten to any room. 

Pendant light fixtures are suspended from the ceiling by a chain, chord, or rod and can be hung individually or in clusters. What is great about this, is that depending on the area your looking to change, these lights can serve as the perfect accent, change the mood through their color and texture, or even become the primary focus and serve as functional art piece. 

All handblown by artists Andi Kovel and Justin Parker, the pendants below vary in price and size to fit any budget and space.
