Defined as a hanging fixture with just one shade, pendants started becoming more mainstream in the 1960s and 70s, according to Joseph Rey-Barreau, education consultant for the American Lighting Association, who notes that back then they were used mainly over breakfast or basement card tables. Kotz explains that three types of lighting are key to a beautiful and properly lit kitchen: high-hats for overhead lighting, under-cabinet task lighting, and a focal point, like a pendant that introduces another color and shape into the room. Beyond the kitchen, pendants can be utilized to highlight a piece of furniture, add an accent, or provide task lighting, such as when placed on either side of a bed, Rey-Barreau said.

A newly popular space where pendants are lighting the way is the bath, according to John DeAmicis, partner at Lighting Design Associates, Dongan Hills, who said homeowhers are using them in concert with an overhead fixture, placing them on either side of a mirror to aid in grooming tasks.
