These pendants fit Millennial styles and needs to a tee.

From Instagram and Alexa to sustainability and artisanal anything, Millennials (folks born from about 1980 to 2000) are bewildering at best.

Lucky for all of us, the latest pendants are tuned in to what the Internet Generation wants most: modern manners, infinite options and the perpetual presence of the peek-a-boo bulb. 

Vermont-Modern-Metro-pendant-MillennialMetro pendant — Vermont Modern by Hubbardton Forge

Crafted by a group of denim-clad hipsters from Vermont, the Metro pendant from Hubbardton Forge’s Millennial-focused brand, Vermont Modern, honors the mass transit maps Millennials rely on to take them from their office jobs in the city to their favorite restaurants and back home again. 

Millennials love: Metro’s modern pop of color and rotating steel tubes that they can customize to fit their environment.


Plumen-Ruche-pendant-Millennial-lightingPendant with Ruche 3D printed shade — Plumen

Plumen’s signature line of modern, modular modern lighting components (think light bulbs, shades and accessories like cables and ceiling roses) gives Millennials creative license to make their lighting their own. 

Millennials love: Tech-savvy design features like a 3D printed shade and energy-efficient bulbs that don’t skimp on style.


Mitzi-Hudson-Valley-Lighting-Daisy-Millennial-lightingDaisy — Mitzi by Hudson Valley Lighting

Step aside Iris Apfel. Mitzi must have been one stylish granny. Her namesake brand by Hudson Valley Lighting is a perfect partnership between classic and contemporary, and the Daisy pendant finds no problem with standing out yet fitting right in. 

Millennials love: Clean, modern lines and just the right amount of retro.



Koket-Outburst-pendant-Millennial-lightingOutburst — Koket

If adventure is what Millennials are looking for, Koket delivers. The company’s striking Outburst fixture mirrors its founder’s personal mantra to take risks, turn heads and command attention. Millennials (and all of us for that matter) are listening.

Millennials love: Exotic, luxurious aesthetics and the passion of company founder Janet Morais.
