9 Favorite Round Pendant Lights

In a recent search for spherical pendant lights for a current interior design project, I gathered these gems to share. Call them globe pendants, round pendants, spherical pendants, orb pendants, these lights can bring major impact to almost any interior. I especially like the way they soften and provide geometric contrast to spaces that include a lot of straight lines, such as kitchens.
Most pendant lights of this round shape are omni directional, meaning they will cast light all around a room, as opposed to concentrating it in one direction, while some are designed to focus light straight down.
