In the last year or so we have seen a huge increase in lighting choices and especially alternatives to a traditional chandelier.

If you want to make a statement in 2018 its got to involve globes and orbs, plus a bit of bling! Copper and brass are still the most popular metal finishes, with frosted and smoked surrounds and bulbs, to echo a 1920s feel.

It’s all about the bold shapes that are created – straight arms and circles. Many of the pendants on the market are adjustable so you can find a perfect fit for any room.

We think this style works best over a dining table or in a hallway.
