Picking out pendant lighting can be tricky! Trying to marry functionality and aesthetics with hundreds of sizes, finish colors, and options to choose from can be overwhelming. Where to start?

The lighting in factories and manufacturing facilities of the early 1900â€™s was simplistic and functional, based primarily on low hanging trouble lights with protective wire guards that encased the bulb.
