Top picks for kitchen pendant lighting

Although this season may not consist of the large gatherings and parties of summer’s past, we can still connect with close friends and loved ones in the safety of our own homes. The best parties always end up in the kitchen – the central space for cooking, drinking, and sharing stories. Although best known for our bespoke, beaded chandeliers – did you know some of Ro Sham Beaux’s best-selling fixtures are our pendant lights? These beautiful fixtures exude simple, elevated elegance. Contemporary to traditional, the pendant light fits effortlessly into almost any kitchen style. Here are some of our favorite ideas for kitchen pendant lighting.


The Archie is available in both brass and silver. Their matte sheen compliments a variety of hardware colors and their cone-shape are an extremely popular pick for kitchen pendant lighting. With a semi-industrial look, we agree they fit seamlessly into any cooking space. They also look beautiful when hung in multiples. We often see designers dot them above kitchen islands. They’re great for adding detail down hallways as well.

The Theo is a round clear glass pendant with matte brass hardware. It includes five feet of our signature Ro Sham Beaux chain. The Theo pendant brings retro elements to a contemporary kitchen.


Lastly, The Orb Pendant, available in clear and opal glass, is a globe pendant with natural hemp accent and brass hardware. It’s hemp details add a bohemian touch to an elevated kitchen. If you’re on the hunt for kitchen pendant lighting, our Orb pendant is always a winner.
