The Best Plug-In Pendant Lights

the best plug in pendant lights

When we moved out of our Beacon Hill apartment last year into our new place, the one thing we were most excited for was having a space that would fit a dining table. While this might sound silly, if you live in a city you know how hard it can be to find an apartment that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg that can also fit a dining/kitchen table (see our dining space inspo here)! Since there is no hardwired flush mount or chandelier in the space, the previous tenants had installed a hook and hung a plug-in pendant light over their round table. Our biggest struggle? Finding a plug-in pendant light that fit our style!

Whether you’re in the same boat as us and are renting but can’t hardwire lighting in, or if you’re just looking for a more temporary lighting solution in your home, plug-in pendant lights are a great option! Plus, over the years many brands have started carrying more plug-in lighting options which makes the process so much easier. To make your search easier, here are some gorgeous plug-in pendant lights that could work in any space!

Schoolhouse Pendant

This small but mighty pendant is a great option for smaller spaces, over a reading nook, or paired with two more over a kitchen island. The glass allows for more light and doesn’t block natural light or make a tight space feel clustered.

Linen Drum Pendant

This linen pendant is a great option in a more traditional-style space. Because of the shape and size, it would look really good over a round table in a dining room or breakfast nook.

Our old pendant light (pictured above) was bamboo and we loved it, it just didn’t fit the space anymore but the style is still a fav! If you’re looking for a pendant that gives off good light and is also a decorative piece, this one is such a great option!
