How to Style One Pendant Three Ways

July 17, 2015 4

Contemporary light fixtures have become works of art in their own right, often serving as the style focal points of living spaces. In particular, pendants are taking centre stage as they have the ability to add dramatic flair or create a minimalist effect, depending on the style and their integration within a space. Our experts have the perfect high impact fixture that will serve as a focal point in any room.

Maxim – Crete 4 Light Multi-Light Pendant

The Crete 4 Light Multi-Light Pendant by Maxim offers a cluster of four pendants, each with its own unique geometric shape. The shades are a tastefully neutral grey, paired perfectly with an injection of playfulness through the concrete texture and solitary silhouettes. Combined with the contrasting polished chrome hardware, this bespoke fixture is the epitome of urban contemporary design. With the additional dimming capabilities, this ergonomic fixture works beautifully as accent lighting or ambient lighting.

With a statement light like this one, there are so many ways to style and incorporate this piece into your home. Our design experts share their top suggestions, showing you how to style one pendant three ways.

1. Pump up the contrast

Pair this pendant against an accent wall, hanging it in front of a dark colour such as charcoal grey or a bright colour like sunshine yellow. The concrete shades will pop against these colours for a dramatic and high impact effect.

2. Try minimalist appeal

The natural textures and tones of this fixture evoke a minimalist vibe. Consider pairing this piece above a kitchen island that has sleek, simple hardware. Stick to neutral colour palettes and simple designs that are geometric or linear in shape.

3. Blend traditional and industrial

If you’re not ready to go all-out with a new style but love this look, why not blend it into your existing style. Using a statement piece like a light fixture is the perfect way to seamlessly bring together two styles. Keep your core furniture (like couches and tables) traditional, and use accent pieces like this light fixture to bring in some unexpected industrial flair.

Lighting adds structure and order to a room, creating a pulled-together and highly designed aesthetic.
