Ceiling Lights & Pendant Lights
Ceiling lights and pendant lights are essential light fixtures for the home. These produce the two types of lighting necessary for living and working comfortably: ambient lighting and task lighting.
Ambient lighting, or general lighting, is optimal for open-concept floorplans, large living spaces, and other spacious rooms that require ample light. Task lighting is more focused, ideal for illuminating smaller rooms or specific areas within a large room, such as a kitchen island or dining room table. Many recessed ceiling lights and pendant ceiling lights are designed with transparent shades that diffuse soft light and produce a warm, ambient glow, while directional pendant lights with opaque shades are best for producing task lighting. At Herman Miller, discover pendant light fixtures by iconic designers like George Nelson and Michael Anastassiades. For additional Herman Miller lighting solutions, shop all lighting.
