What does 'modern' mean to you? As is so often the case with words that see a lot of use, the exact criteria for 'modern' (especially 'modern lighting') can be nebulous. But when it comes to modern interiors, a few basic tenets do apply. Generally speaking, modern interiors can be characterized by clean lines, simple color palettes, and limited adornment. If you're looking to set the tone for a modern space, lighting goes a long way.
When it comes to modern lighting, the same rules apply: think bold shapes and silhouettes, simple materials, and a focus on strong presence over fine details. As seen in these images found on Pinterest, a contemporary pendant light fixture that falls into this category can have a big impact, even in a space that isn't inherently modern. So don't be afraid to mix modern lighting into a traditional space for a look that's all your own!
