Pendant lights are all the rage right now. They can be used over dining tables, in foyers, over a kitchen island, over a bar, as lighting for a pool table or poker table and various other areas in the home. Most people assume that when something is popular, such as the pendant light, that translates into an expensive light. Fortunately, when it comes to this particular lighting trend, it’s within most people’s budget. Here are 10 great modern pendant lights under $150.
Quorum International Q882 Modern Mini Pendant – $50.00
This mini pendant features an opaque light bulb with a clear encasing. The sleek shape combined with the satin nickel finish make this pendant a great choice and for $50 each, you can get a few without breaking the bank.
Kichler 2714 Contemporary/Modern Single Light Pendant – $145.00
The brushed nickel finish of this downward light pendant combined with the conical/disk shape of the shade give it almost Art Deco feel, though the overall pendant is clearly very modern. It’s a little higher up in price range, but worth the statement that it makes as a light.

This particular pendant light is a steal, not only is it stylish (and comes in three colors: milk white, seaweed green or azure blue) with it’s colored glass etched shade and clear glass canopy encasing, but it’s also energy star rated; so it’s efficient as well.
Minka Lavery 1421 Mini Pendant – $57.00
The shade of this mini pendant features etched marble glass in a more traditional curved shape. The brushed nickel finish gives it a modern appeal, so it will look good in a contemporary space, a modern space or a traditional space; without being too flashy or stealing the show.
Progress Lighting P5011 Contemporary/Modern Pendant – $75.60
This pendant features a combination clear glass disk with an etched glass cone. It will fit well with both modern or contemporary rooms but also has a toned-down feel of an Art Deco fixture, so it could really fit many different styles of decor.
Lite Source LS-19965 Pendant Light – $38.70
The spherical shade combined with the swirled singular line gives a feeling of playfulness when looking at this modern pendant light. It comes two color combinations: black and white and red and white; though I recommend the white and black.

The can shape of this mini pendant is very in right now, as is the opaque appearance of the etched glass and the clean brushed nickel finish (though it is also available in an olde bronze finish.)
