There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to personal style, and lighting is no exception. For every design preference, we have your pendant light counterpart: are you bohemian and all-natural? Industrial and hard-edged? Just thrifty and know how to grab a good deal when you see it?

With the huge selection available, there’s no wrong answer (only many, many great options). Have your ideal vision in mind? You may feel dead-set on your preferences, but some of these great prices could sway your choice at least slightly. So let’s see the pendant lighting selection that Apartment Therapy Marketplace has for us:


Who knew that you could get so many great options for under $100? These three are sleek, streamlined and modern, but still draw attention with a slight nod to industrial edge. Lumens and West Elm are making some impressive appearances: the first light is over 50% off retail cost, and each item is still available brand new and in-box. But all costs and name brand appeal aside = glass and brass make quite the pair.


It’s all about bold metals in this price range. A handcrafted piece upcycled from vintage kitchen materials, something celebrating Mid-century modern style, and another great designer deal from Design Within Reach. How great of a deal are we talking here? Over 50% off the original retail cost. And yes, it’s twin is also available, so you can have double the style for a fraction of the retail cost.


And finally, we’ve reached the biggest investments with visual impact to match. The first option from Kate Spade is feminine and glitzy, followed by boldly retro and contemporary options. Wherever you choose to display these pieces in your home, make sure it’s somewhere that’s visited frequently: these are too nice to be tucked away.
