The modern lighting junction box, or electrical box, is where the electrical wires originate. The junction box is where you will connect the wires to the cord set, and also where the ceiling canopy will attach to support the light fixture. The junction box does not come with the pendant and must be purchased separately. Learn more about alternative ways to hang multiple pendants to get the most out of your junction boxes. Hiring a licensed electrician is always recommended for installing your modern lighting fixtures.
