Design Spotlight: Gorgeous Glass Pendants by LBL

Founded in 1971 in Chicago, Lightning Bug Limited began as a family-run small business. Over the decades, the company has built a team of over 300 and provides contemporary, forward thinking lighting solutions across the country. LBL Lighting has rightly earned its reputation for fine craftsmanship, as evidenced by their spectacular glass lighting designs.

LBL has three core values – beauty, originality and quality, which guide their design choices through every step of the production process. The company combines low voltage and LED technology, unique shapes and high quality materials to provide some of the best light fixtures on the market.

One design element we especially love from LBL is their ability to create distinctive glass pendants – here’s four of our favorite glass hanging light options available from LBL.

Zuri Pendant

LBL Zuri PendantThe Zuri Pendant from LBL features a wrinkled Italian glass shade with a thin metal coat for a uniquely textural appearance.

The glossy shade is available in either Black, Silver or Copper and the metal portion of the fixture is available in either a Bronze or Satin Nickel finish.

During the day, this fixture is reflective and attractive, but when the light is turned on, the shade transforms with a translucent appearance.

LBL Rock Candy Pendant

Rock Candy Cylinder Pendant

Sporting another interestingly textured glass shade, the Rock Candy Cylinder Pendant draws inspiration from the classic children’s candy. LBL achieves the fixture’s unique granular texture by rolling the shade through Clear Crystal frit before flash heating it to solidify its appearance.

It features an inner Opal glass diffuser for a soft, pleasant glow. The pendant light is available in Amethyst, Dark Amber, or Steel Blue for a punch of color. If you’re looking for something more subtle, there are also Clear and Smoke options.

Choose from Bronze or Satin Nickel finishes, as well as Incandescent or Compact Fluorescent lamping options.

What Shoppers Are Saying About the Rock Candy Cylinder Pendant:

I looked for months before finding these beautiful pendant lights and am so glad I didn’t settle for any other light. They are perfect and complement the kitchen better than any other light I have seen.

Zollo Pendant

Zollo Pendant by LBL LightingThe Zollo Pendant from LBL has a smooth, spherical shape made from thick Italian glass with an interesting organic crackle pattern.

The fixture is available in either Blue or Gray with Bronze or Satin Nickel finish options.

These glass pendants are perfect for contemporary kitchens or dining rooms and look great on their own or arranged in a row.

Choose from LED or Xenon lamping options.

LBL Julep Pendant Light
