Pendant Light Ideas

Many people have asked us how they would utilize our brass and copper pendant lights in their homes or businesses. Vintage copper pendant lights are utilized in various different ways. While we’ve seen customers install these lights in their kitchens, bathrooms, porches, and restaurants – we certainly haven’t reached the limit of creative installations of vintage pendant lights. Kitchen Pendant Lights are one of the categories we receive the most inquiries about. Further down the page, we have an example of how you might use our lights as pendant lights. Oftentimes, ceiling lights are hung with chains as pendant lights.

For example, take a look at the wonderful decoration that Strangers and Saints has put up at their bar and restaurant. Strangers and Saints is located in the coastal town of Provincetown, MA. All of the vintage brass pendant lights that are hanging above the bar in the picture below are salvaged nautical lights. This bar utilizes several styles of pendant/ceiling lights that are hanging by chain above the customers.

Here’s another great example of how our customers are using vintage brass ceiling lights as pendant lights in their residential nautical homes.

Traditional brass pendant lights are often used for restaurant designs. One recent restaurant that used our antique lights is The Chimes in Baton Rouge, LA. While this picture is before the establishment was up and running, you can get a good feel for the aesthetic they are trying to foster with the installation of these large antique pendant lights.

2020-2021 Update

We attended the few shows that happened during this time period. Most of the shows were canceled due to COVID concerns.

2022 Update

We attended the May show and were featured on Martha Stewart’s blog. She stopped by the tent while we were away but she shared some pictures of our lights and talked about our tent at the show. We won’t be at the July show but we will be there for September. If there are any items that you would like to purchase and pick up at the show, order now to reserve the item, save on shipping costs and we’ll pack it with us!
