Never thought I would like a black pendant light until I saw this photo above. In a bright enough and simple enough room a black light fixture, chandelier or pendant light can work. Way back, everyone was doing black Murano glass chandeliers...I like this look as today's take on black lights!

Here is today's CHEAP TO CHIC on some black pendant lights.

  1. Great options and I love a black pendant. My favourite though is Flos Skygarden light- I'm bananas over that light but sadly it is wayyyy over budget. Thanks for giving me some more realistic alternatives!

  3. Oooh the last one is my favorite. But of course it is, it's the most expensive. Isn't that always the case?

  7. Nero love a touch of well, nero.
    I have a similar drumshade to the last one you posted in my son's room.
    It looks great, really grounds the space and lifts the eye.

  8. You my be surprised but IKEA also has several black pendant lights. Very similar at a fraction of the cost of others. Also you can buy a simple white shade one and cover with black fabric.

  13. I love the simple beauty of these pendant lamps. You can fit them in many types of decor and they are nicely functional. I don't think that I can choose a favorite.
