20 Best Plug-In Pendant Lights

I may earn a small commission for my endorsement, recommendation, testimonial, and/or link to any products or services from this website.

As someone who lives in a historic rowhome, I know a lot about how to light a room that doesn’t have overhead lighting – sometimes there just isn’t a ceiling fixture in your room or you might have plaster ceilings which would make installing ceiling wiring a major project.

Whatever your space is like, there are plenty of ways to light a room without overhead lighting, and I’ve rounded up some of my favorite corded and plug-in pendant lights and chandeliers to inspire lighting in your space!
