For years we have seen a row of pendants, either on a rail or a track or as individual monopoints over the kitchen island or dining tables. It is good way of bringing the light to where you want it and getting the amount of light that is needed. But lately we have seen a new design trend that offers just the same functionality, but a different look: Single linear pendants. From minimal to exuberant, sleek to sculptural there are linear lights for almost every design style. Often they are suspended from cables that can make them appear to float in space.
