Flush and semi-flush pendants are the all-rounders in the lighting family, casting light over a wide space while still allowing a decent portion of their light to fall in a specific area. Read More...
Light travels in straight lines outward from its source, bouncing off any surface that doesn't completely absorb it. Absorbed light is converted to heat energy, so the interior surface of light shades is normally designed to be reflective or translucent, rather than absorbent.
The shape of the pendant will determine how the light is directed. Transparent or highly translucent pendants will throw the most scattered light, giving a good general lighting to the whole room without too much focus.
This makes such a design good for use in bedrooms and corridors. Add a dimmer switch and you can totally set the mood.
Less translucent or opaque pendants will reflect more light internally, and the focus of the light depends much more on the shape of the design in this case. Generally the intention is to send more of the light directly down, but sometimes it can be sent in other directions.
There is even a rare type of semi-flush pendant that is fully opaque on the bottom and open at the top.
This is intended for situations where only indirect light is desired. The light is reflected off the ceiling and as a consequence the illumination is very weak. It would be used in spaces where light is constantly required, but the general area is intended for rest or sleep.
Pendant designs from Christopher Wray provide the perfect blend of functional and decorative light with elegance. They’re perfectly suited to areas where a chandelier or hanging pendant would feel like it's too much, or would get in the way.
With looks ranging from antique to modern, flush and semi-flush pendants from Christopher Wray can enhance any space. Show Less...
