Well I really hope that made you laugh this Friday! If not i’ll insert the most extremely #awkward moment in here just in case it didn’t 😉

Now let’s get onto the subject of feature lighting because it’s a pretty important one! Lighting not only sets the mood and tone of an area, but the shape, material, position and colour of the lamp will also personalize the space. Pendants particularly are such a focal point, adding personality and setting the mood, so choosing the right one is a big decision… like if you choose the wrong one, it might wreck the whole look of the house ahhhh.. this is an important decision guys, almost as important as buying the right car…kind of 😉

You can break down lighting into three main categories: general lighting, task lighting and accent lighting.

 The Factory Lamp by HK Living is a great example of a pendant that meets both the task and accent lighting categories. It is an industrial style hanging pendant that will give your interior a distinctive accent. Featuring a powdercoated steel shade, this hard wearing industrial light will give you maximum down lighting! Perfectly suited above an island kitchen bench or a space that needs task lighting. it works especially well if you have high ceilings and want that industrial New York Loft vibe. Check it out about the boardroom table though – OMG!




When sourcing a pendant light for your space think about the area you are working with.

Opting for something in a bedroom that will create a beautiful glow, rather than something that is too bright. (because let’s face it, nobody wants their bedroom to look like a hospital at night) You want to create a mood here.. a soft and sexy MOOD. The Fabric lantern by HK Living is seriously soooooooo STUNNING and really affordable!! This lantern pendant will soften any space with its beautiful glow and will you look at it all clustered in different sizes and colours. WHOAAAA! Or simply left alone to compliment the rest of the bedroom.


Consider how much natural lighting is in your space. 

When designing a room with very little natural light, consider a pendant that is not only stylish, but will still give you enough light for a functional space. The rope chandelier by HK Living is a great example of a pendant that is visually stunning and shines beautifully contoured shadows when turned on!! An AMAZING option for above a dining table and its one that will get a tonne of compliments at meal times!!
