The Hamptons style is one that originated in a region of Long Island, New York, known for its luxurious and sophisticated beach houses. Hamptons inspired decor is typically characterised by its elegant and understated aesthetic, with interiors that evoke a sense of relaxation and serenity.

Hamptons Pendant Lights are often designed to resemble traditional lanterns, chandeliers, and sconces, but with a modern twist. While the decor usually features a combination of natural materials such as wood, rattan, and linen, along with sleek metal finishes like brushed nickel or polished chrome.

In terms of colour, Hamptons interior style tends to be light and airy, with soft pastel hues like blue, green, and beige. The lighting is often layered, with multiple sources of light used to create a warm and inviting atmosphere, including table lamps, floor lamps, and of course pendant lights.

Assigned the almost impossible task of choosing 15 of the best pendants with the ultimate Long Island look in mind, our selection combines high quality materials and craftsmanship with beautiful brass accents, fine monochrome detailing and innovative design. Read on to discover our top picks.
