One of the first things I do when I, or any of my friends, move into a new apartment is look for lighting I can swap out. Most apartments come with those awful “boob” ceiling lights, so the first thing I do is find a new medallion or cover and replace them with a pendant. As much as I love a chandelier, there’s not always the ceiling height in a city apartment that you need for something that large, so a pendant is always a good quick fix. At this year’s ICFF I made a mental note to keep track of all the pendants and hanging lights that would make for great city apartment lighting. From pretty silver globes lights to the delicate pendants above, I hope these new designs will inspire you to try something different at home.

The pattern of these silver globe lights from Tom Dixon was so beautiful- especially in shimmery silver.
These pendants from 100xbtr were made of Corian, but were deceptively light. They also remind me of Pac- Man ghosts. Score!
I loved this simple little strand of lights of Grain Design.
More pendant lighting from ICFF 2013 continues after the jump…
I love the woven texture in these white pendants from Artecnica
The left two silver pendants from Artecnica were some of my favorite.
