Types of pendant lighting: Just as there are several types of table lamps, so is true for pendant lighting. Fabric pendant lights give off a softer glow, because of the diffused light through the fabric shades.
Provide lighting for safety and security on the exterior of your home: Walkways, sidewalks, perimeter of your house, and the front entry should be lit with ambient lighting. Too dim of lighting on the exterior is a welcome sign for intruders.
Because of the way the lamp is built, the light also illuminates the glass beam, creating that delightful X-Files effect.
These unique lighting fixtures out of Germany reuse old dead light bulbs to create dramatic sculptural lamps. Bulbs Unlimited sells kits that let you create fixtures like the ones pictured here from your own recycled bulbs.
