Lately I am just loving the industrial, minimalist look of bare bulb lighting. These hanging pendants are so understated but when done right, can add so much style to a space. I think multiples is the key - one bulb alone can look a bit severe but when in a grouping they are a wonderfully modern take on a chandelier. I especially love this kitchen below, mounting a black metal ceiling rod is a brilliant way to hang these pendants. Also, so sorry but no eco friendly bulbs here - vintage inspired or oversized filament bulbs are the prettiest when they are the star of the show!
