Focused Intensity

You’re hiking through the forest, covered by a canopy of thick tree branches. You reach a spot where the sunlight breaks through the leaves and casts a perfect spotlight on the babbling brook ahead. Whether it’s under cabinet lighting illuminating your cutting board or a pendant light displaying a pottery piece from your recent travels—this effect is sure to catch the eye.

Pendants can work perfectly in a bedroom Consider placing over on side tables, but be certain to select the luminaire with direction qualities. If you are focused on a task in the kitchen, office or garage under cabinet lights or downlights would work best.
