Stem Mount Pendant Lighting
Today, things that come on sticks are revered around the world. We’re not exactly sure of the beginnings of Something on a Stick Day, however we have a few guesses – corn dogs, tree leaves, and our personal favorite, stem mount pendant lighting! Stem mounted pendants have a vintage industrial look to them, yet they are also visually appealing! In honor of this eccentric holiday, we bring you our five favorite stem mount pendant lights.
The Barn Light Radial Wave Pendant has a unique shallow shade. The rippled effect lends character to the look that this barn pendant beams to its surroundings. The pendant shown is a perfect example of how this pendant is customizable beyond belief, featuring a red wire cage with a frosted jelly jar glass. These provide protection to the light bulb, similar to the protection the stem provides to the interior wiring, making it perfect for outdoor use!
Porcelain stem mount pendant lighting is perfect for outdoor use as well. The durability of the porcelain enamel coating is ideal for exterior use, and will retain its color for years to come. The Benjamin® Bomber Porcelain Stem Mount Light gets its look from vintage barn lights used in factories as task lighting, Coming standard with a hang straight canopy, this stem mount light is ideal if you have a sloped ceiling.
Also utilizing porcelain in its build is the Retro Renovation Porcelain & Galvanized Pendant. The Vintage Levitron Porcelain Base has the same durability to last the years as our porcelain barn lights. While minimalist in appearance, pendant lighting similar to this is popping up all over design magazine and blogs with the rising popularity of industrial design.
Pendant lighting is commonly seen over kitchen islands, and the Altamont Pendant Light has a vintage style that is perfect for just that. Available in old bronze, polished nickel, or satin nickel, this vintage style light is also similar to pendant lighting used by professional interior designers in beautiful homes. The vintage look radiates timeless elegances and classic styling to any room you choose to hang it.
Stem mount pendants aren’t also necessarily a single pendant light. Consider the Benjamin® Speedway 12” 2-Light Porcelain Shallow Bowl Pendant. This dual shade pendant features two of our popular, durable porcelain Aero shades on either end, and would also look great mounted over a farmhouse dining table.
