Statement lighting is the easiest way to change the feel and personality of a room.

Making a bold statement with a pendant or chandelier can be nerve racking, so I’ve pulled together a roundup of my favorite statement lights that make a big impact on a room without feeling dated. The trick? Stick to classic shapes, finishes and colors – blacks, whites, brass, gold and nickel.
