To begin with, there is a difference between pendants and chandeliers. The main difference is in how the lights are hung. Pendants hang from a single cord or chain and have just one or two light sources. Chandeliers have multiple lights, often branched out into several sections.
Pendants used to be a lot smaller and not as elaborate as they are now. Pendants are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. They are versatile. We are particularly drawn to the unusual shapes of pendants that tell a story.
Traditionally, pendants were used mostly in residential kitchens, dining rooms, and restaurants, but today they can be found almost anywhere: office kitchens, reception desks, residential bathrooms, home offices, and more.
