When did the bedside reading sconce morph into a pendant? Sconces are much preferred over a table lamp, which I tend to find clunky both visually and functionally, but why the sudden fascination with pendant lights in the bedroom? Low hanging pendant lights, no less. Pendant lights that dangle much closer to the ground have been a growing trend, both in the bedroom and other rooms.
Would you do it? I’ve actually been thinking about swapping out the articulating sconces in our master bedroom. Then, last week, a 12-year-old with a strong throwing arm smashed the glass shade with a football. But I’m not sure I’m sold on the pendant light by the bed thing. Maybe I’m wrong. Thoughts?
Today, I’ve pulled 24 bedrooms that boast low-hanging light pendants, bedside.
