How are oval pendant lights perfect for the modern home?

With curved, eye-catching designs, oval pendants are an unbelievably chic and contemporary choice for your well-appointed home. Pendant lighting has a unique ability to cast a glow over any room of your home. Whether your space needs ambient lighting or a functional task light, oval-shaped pendant lights are the perfect solution. Take a look at the artistic, creative, and exquisite designs available at 2Modern and see for yourself why oval pendants are the ideal choice for your upscale home.

How to choose the perfect oval pendant lighting

First, decide how many pendants your space requires. If you have your eye on a large oval pendant light, you might just need 1 light to properly illuminate your space. If you’re using oversized fixtures over your dining table or kitchen island, 2 or 3 pendants might be sufficient. If a small pendant appeals to you most, you may need 4 lights instead. Our 4-step how-to guide is a helpful resource for determining the number of pendants your kitchen or dining room needs. Use a single oval pendant light as an ultra-modern alternative to a traditional nightstand lamp, use 1 or 2 pendants to illuminate your desk area, and so much more. Take the size and scale of the pendant, your space, your furniture, and your décor into consideration when deciding on the ideal number of lights for your specific purpose.

Consider your style preferences when choosing oval-shaped pendants. Take note of the décor, furniture, and architectural elements within your home. What style do you gravitate toward? Perhaps the retro charm of mid-century modern designs appeals to you most, or maybe you prefer the straightforward simplicity of Scandinavian lighting. Use a contemporary design to play up your modern tastes, or invite visual interest with a bold, Avant Garde design. Choose pendants that truly speak to your impeccable taste.

Think about the material that works best in your home. If you’re using oval pendants as part of your patio design, you’ll want a fixture rated for outdoor use. Metal is well-suited for indoor or outdoor lighting. Metal adds a substantial textural appearance to lighting, and it takes on a variety of different shapes and styles. Glass or acrylic add depth and beauty, while wood brings a natural, outdoorsy touch. The material of your lighting has a significant impact on the overall look and feel of your space.

Finally, decide on the colors that suit your taste and your home best. Choose oval pendant lighting in a metallic shade of silver, or make a more subdued, elegant choice with a brushed nickel finish. Use a bronze oval pendant to welcome depth, or take it a step further with a rich black hue. Incorporate white lighting to create a clean, fresh, and bright space, or use a neutral shade of brown or beige to complement furniture and décor of any color. Your lighting should coordinate well with the other design elements within your home.
