Usually smaller than 12″, mini pendants are hanging fixtures that uniquely and subtly beautify the space they illuminate.Contemporary, modern or  transitional mini pendants may be a perfect way to accent your interior design through lighting. You can also select from a variety of different lamp types including incandescent, LED and halogen depending on the amount of light need for a room.

Tip 1    Take into account the height of those in your household when deciding how high to hang the pendants. If they are hung too high then you may see a glare from the bulb.

Tip 2  Add a dimmer switch to increase the versatility of the pendant lights. They can provide either task or mood lighting.

Tip 3 4. Try to find a fixture that can complement the finishes of your faucets, counter tops, and cabinets. Colorful mini pendants can tie everything together if chosen carefully. Visit our mini pendant page to see the full range of products and styles that are available.

Tip 4  3. Center the fixtures over the counter.

IDSwest 2011 transformed the Vancouver Convention Centre into a mecca of the latest, greatest, bravest and cutting edge from designers, manufactures and retailers (a big tip of the hat to ourselves) last week, the response we received from the many visitors we had to our booth was extremely encouraging. The favorites were the Swarovski Crystal and a lot of  interest in LED, decorative, linear and recessed. Thank you to everyone who came to see us and to the staff who put the booth together, Brett Robinson and Ward Martin for making trip out from Winnipeg and attending the show everyday. We will be making the draw for the $500 gift card on October 15th. The winner will be notified via email.
