Serena Williams Doesn’t Have One Pendant Light in Her Dining Room — She Has More Than 20
When tennis star Serena Williams hired her sister and fellow tennis star Venus Williams (and Venus’s design firm V Starr) to help with the interior decorating of her Florida home, it appears as though the sisters faced a quandary when it came to the dining room light fixture: Which pendant light fits the space perfectly?
Luckily, the solution was simple: don’t pick just one. Install them all and install more than one of each light. The more the merrier.
The result is something that looks like it should be installed in an art museum rather than above a dining room table. But that definitely fits the theme of Serena’s home. (She has an actual art gallery in her front entryway.)
The installation, which follows a black, brass, and pink color scheme, is a combination of glass pendant lights from designer Simon Legald and metal lights from British lighting and design company Tom Dixon.
The shapes of the pendants feel midcentury modern — as does the cluster effect, which pairs perfectly with the minimalist design of the rest of Serena’s living room and house.
And as if the pendants weren’t visually appealing, another wow factor of the installation hits when you realize that each light is seemingly individually wired into the ceiling. Now that is dedication to the design.
To get a similar look without having to call a team of electricians, check out this glass pendant fixture from Pottery Barn. It, too, has varying pendant shapes and sizes, and the glasswork looks similar to that of Legald.
Why have a single pendant light hanging above your dining room table when you could have 20-ish? Serena and Venus may know a thing or two about the game of tennis, but one could argue they also have gone pro in the world of maximalist light features.
