Pendant lights have always been popular, but they’re receiving unprecedented attention at the moment thanks to renovation and home decor TV shows, online inspiration sharing sites like Pinterest and Instagram and the increasing affordability of different lighting options. Instead of just sticking with whichever lights are built into their home, people are starting to change their lights according to the season and the trends, treating them like throw cushions and other styling details.

Cage pendant lights are everywhere right now, and for good reason! Cages work with all different styles of decor and homes of all different periods.

Metal cages have an inherently industrial feel, reminiscent of the cages around spotlights on building sites. To take the edge off, use a vintage filament bulb that produces a warm ambient light.
