Choosing the Right Pendant Light

Customising Your Pendant Lights




Customising your pendant lights is a fantastic way to add a personal touch to your home’s lighting design.

Whether you’re aiming to create a cosy ambiance in your living room or light up your kitchen island, there are endless possibilities when it comes to choosing the right pendant lights for your space. Let’s dive into how you can select the perfect pendant light fixtures, focusing on finishes, length, and dimmability, while also considering the latest lighting trends of 2023/2024.

Selecting the Right Pendant Light for Your Space

The first step in customising your pendant lighting is to select the right fixture for your space. This involves considering the size of the room, the ceiling height, and the overall aesthetic you wish to achieve. For example would you want your pendant to be a stand out feature, consider a finish like chrome or a brighter finish and a design to help create a eye catching piece. whereas if you want the lighting to blend in seamlessly with your overall decor, consider the shape of our pendant, a design we really love is the Flora by From the Anvil, inspired by nature, our Flora pendants feature delicate curves which disperse beams of light to create a warm, soft ambience and in a country home surrounded by nature we believe this is the perfect option for someone with wants to bring nature indoors.

Furthermore, for rooms with higher ceilings, pendant lights with adjustable lengths can offer flexibility and allow you to achieve the perfect drop and can allow for a well light open living space to still feel cosy. This can be acheived with your electrician, just recommend the size you want the cord to be and they will be able to cut the cord to the correct drop.

What Finish is Right for Your Pendant Light

Choosing the right finish for your pendant light can significantly impact the overall look and feel of your room. Using darker finishes such as a black or a deep blue, offered a moody look to a room and can create a dramatic centerpiece for a room, we would recommend our Elan Black and Soot coloured finishes (ADD LINK) these are inspired by the welsh landscape around the From The Anvil factory.


Mirrored finishes and mixing metals are currently trending, with a bold transition to aged brass over polished and satin finishes storming through 2023. Mixing metals like nickel and blue finishes, or brass and muted pinks and orange metals can offer an amazing contrasted look.
