A Chinese hanging lamp, otherwise known as an oriental style light, will add global flair to any room whilst making the space around it look instantly cooler. Silk and rattan/wicker are the most popular materials for Asian inspired pendant and chandelier lights, so we’ve chosen a few of our favorites below so you can find your perfect match.
Lattice Oriental Hanging Lamp
Carefully crafted from wicker over a metal base for sturdiness and stability, this set of 2 pendant lights will look beautiful hanging from your ceiling. They have a cord of 59 inches and require Edison bulbs.
The caged geometric shape is evocative of the intricate detailing seen in oriental designs, so we think these lamps would suit a bedroom perfectly. The soft and subtle lighting tone will create a chilled-out atmosphere for when you’re settling in for the night.
Artistic Oriental Pendant Light
Shaped like a donut, this eclectic light brings a new and exciting vibe to pendant lights. Crafted from metal and bamboo, it has 1 light within and measures 21.5 inches wide. The cord is 47 inches.
Defiantly unusual, this handwoven lamp would look gorgeous in a room with other rattan furniture to exemplify its natural vibe. We recommend placing it in an entryway or a room with high ceilings so that the shaping is given the full spotlight.
Drum Shape Asian Chandelier Lighting
With distinctive braiding that gives the impression of beaded pearls, this chandelier combines traditional Asian design with contemporary features. Able to hang up to 110 inches for a grand look, it has 4 lights.
The open design of this chandelier means it will exude a lot of light, but we think the coastal boho vibe it exudes would best suit an entryway or sunroom. However, the bleached color and cream beading would add a refined touch wherever you wish to place it.
Rattan Asian Inspired Pendant Light
Joss & Main
Understated and chic, this pendant light is available in natural or white painted rattan. With 4 lights within so a large amount of light can filter through, it can also be adjusted to a maximum height of 64.37 inches.
There’s a beachy boho look to this lamp which is exemplified by the use of natural fibers and the braided rope it is crafted from. If you want to stick to this vibe, opt for the natural rattan color, or opt for the white painted rattan if you want to brighten up a smaller room.
Rounded Chinese Hanging Light
Bay Isle Home™
Completely rounded, this Chinese hanging light will make a gorgeous statement. Able to be adjusted to your preference, it is okay to be used on sloped ceilings. Handcrafted from bamboo rattan, it has a charming look to it inspired by China’s traditional designs.
We recommend placing this hanging light in a kitchen for the greatest effect, as the rounded shade will cast a glow over your eating area or kitchen island, creating a warm and relaxed area that guests will instantly feel at home in.
Chinese Hanging Lamp with Metal Exterior
Encased in a curved black metal cage for a modern twist, this hanging lamp has a delicate paper sphere inside that is made from 100% recycled paper. Moreover, it is dimmable and can be adjusted to your height preference.
Due to the red shade inside, this lamp would look amazing in a living room or bedroom, as the light it gives out will have a soft red tinge to it. While red is often thought of as a harsh color, the material used for this shade will diffuse it and create a laidback atmosphere instead.
Upside Down Asian Inspired Chandelier
Inspired by iconic tiffany designs of the past, this chandelier stands out from the crowd with its Asian-inspired upside-down triangle design. Crafted from 368 pieces of glass, keep in mind that it won’t give out tons of light due to the enclosed dome shape.
The warm, earthy tones of amber, bisque, and green are complemented by an antique bronze base that would add an ideal final touch to a living room. Make your room look even more put-together and cohesive by picking out the colors in your chandelier and matching them with cushions – just be careful not to overdo it.
Silk Chinese Hanging Lamp
You can choose from a red or white shade with this ultra-traditional Chinese lamp that will bring oriental style to any room. Featuring a polished chrome base and able to hold a bulb of up to 120 volts, it is small but mighty.
The open tulip shape of this hanging lamp would look stunning in an all-white room or a space decorated in majority neutral shades. While you can go for white to create a stylish minimalist look in a kitchen or dining room, going for red would give your home that key Chinese vibe and create a striking contrast against neutral décor.
Asian Hanging Light with Fringing
If you want to make a true statement that will impress guests, this hanging light is made of fabric textile and can project up to 60 watts. With a maximum height of 86.1 inches, it will bring a pop of color to the space around it.
The vibrant red is complemented by unique fringing detail on both the top and bottom.
Bear in mind that due to the thin flute-style design it won’t give out a huge amount of light, so it would be ideal for a spaces like a living room rather than a study.
Globe Asian Hanging Lamp
This hanging lamp is in the shape of a globe for a classic take on Asian lamp styles. A sleek metal finish is hidden by a golden-colored shade that looks like delicately-woven rattan. It requires 60-watt bulb.
We think that the simple elegance of this pendant hanging lamp is perfect for a coastal-style kitchen. Its versatile coloring means it would complement tiling or wooden floor, and it will also match with a variety of colors such as black, white, or brighter colors.
