12 beautiful wooden pendant lights for the modern interior

If there was ever a good time to acquire a new home accessory that will brighten the mood, it’s now. So let’s talk about lighting. On dark winter days, soothing lighting, a good book and a warm blanket will up the hygge factor (and make being forced to stay at home a lot more bearable). As previously discussed with Oliver Heath, furnishings made from natural materials are a key aspect of Biophilic Design and maintain our essential connection to nature. Here, I’ve picked out some captivating wooden pendant lights that will bring a new dimension to every room of the house.
