Lighting design is all about the strategic placement of light and matching the perfect light source to its intended function. Indirect lighting pulls focus adds texture and layers the sight line.
Another important ceiling-based light source is the pendant or chandelier. The line between these two can be blurry as a chandelier is essentially just a large (and often more decorative) pendant light. Chandeliers also are more likely to have multiple bulbs (which help create more layers) but what is or is not a pendant is still a gray area especially with more modern fixtures like the one here.
Although often thought of as primarily an outdoor accoutrement lanterns are useful indoors for adding an extra light to areas such as bathrooms especially when a calming glow is desired for a relaxing mood. Plus a glow coming from below eye level can perfectly balance an overhead light.
