With two wood options, two shape configurations, two metal finishes and hundreds of low- and line-voltage pendants to choose from, the possibilities are almost limitless.

Global Infusion: Trinidad and Madrid Low-Voltage Pendants
Natural materials layer over light to create two unique yet classic takes on global styling themes. The Trinidad is a cylindrical pendant with an island flair. Outer surfaces include tweed, thatch, linen and braided styles. The new Madrid pendant -- part of a family that includes two larger line-voltage options -- incorporates a hand-woven, 100% natural wool knit covering over a blown glass globe -- offered in camel, chocolate brown or dark taupe. The Trinidad and the Madrid are available in halogen and LED lamping options.
