Ceiling lamps are actually really versatile lighting fixtures, ranging from chandeliers to pendants and other kinds of suspension. Taking little space is the most obvious advantage when compared to other kinds of lamps. However, when we talk about pendant lights, what we have are smaller and not so imposing lamps as, for instance, chandeliers. Pendants are petite but not necessarily simple or pared-down. More often than not, pendants offer drama, character and personality to a room. Here are the five finest types of vintage and modern pendant lights and corresponding examples under 100$!

Our first suggestion is an industrial-style black metal lamp. It is manufactured by Globe Electric and is part of the Jayson collection. The lamp is a caged pendant, putting the stress on the metalwork. It has a stark powerful statement and offers a perfect turn of the century industrial look. The Jayson industrial mini pendant is fashioned as an open-bottomed steel bulb guard. The shade is matte black and perfect for a minimalist or vintage kitchen. Its price is 70.99$ but it is on sale on only 36.99$!

Our second suggestion is a Pottery Barn must-have. The McCarthy curvy glass pendant is a minimalist fixture, featuring a curved silhouette and a somewhat rustic bulb. The structure is made of mild steel and the shade is mouth blown glass, which makes it look even more delicate and special. The voluptuous pendant is smooth and will perfectly blend in your vintage, rustic, industrial, coastal or modern home. The light it sheds brims perfectly through the translucent shade, hinting at urbane sophistication. It is 99$!

This retro industrial black pendant from MStar is to die for! It has the look of an antique ceiling pendant, so it is really retro. The shade has an outer black matte finish, with a detailed top in copper. On the contrary, the inside has a golden finish, making it perfect for all sorts of ambiances, from bars, cafes and lofts, to even more homely rooms, such as a vintage kitchen, dining room or actually the bedroom. This retro industrial trinket costs only 59.99$, but it is on sale on Amazon! Only 54.99$.

The last recommendation to you is to go shinny. For those of you who enjoy a hint of sumptuousness and sophistication, a copper globe pendant is just the thing. This one is produced by Australian lighting company Glow Loft and its price is only 33,92$ US (44,95$ AUD). Reflective elements always offer a powerful and utterly dramatic statement to any given room. And, despite the magnificence of this particular lighting fixture, it is simultaneously endearing — perhaps due to the copper finish. The reflective outside is both modern and inviting, since it is inevitable not to stare at it and look at our own misshaped reflection.pendant lighting
