Do these lights match?

lzhwongOctober 16, 2012

I have an open concept floor plan where the kitchen is open to the breakfast area and family room. I will have 2 of the Clemson pendants over the kitchen island and 2 of the firefly chandeliers over a long rectangular table in the breakfast area. Just wanted to get some feedback as to whether these styles/finishes match. Thanks!

A few additional details - the kitchen will have white cabinets with Cambria torquay countertops and polished nickel pulls/faucets.

I know you want to hear otherwise, but I don't think they match. The firefly is more contemporary to me with the straight, clean lines and clear glass....

The firefly doesn't match, But the clear glass kinda makes them disappear. But I am not a fan of the fixture in general.

Thank you for your input. What type of chandelier do you think would coordinate with the Clemson pendants? My husband wasn't a big fan of the firefly lights. Back to the drawing board....

Not a fan of the firefly either. The others are fine. I would lean more traditional over the breakfast table as the island ones are fairly traditional but streamlined.

I agree with athensmom.... Also, I would try to find glass shades that are similarly opaque. I think that will help unite the fixtures.

Would anyone actually put spiral CF lamps in a clear pendant fixture?

I would actually not do the glass on the breakfast table. Too matchy matchy for my taste. I would get something without glass. You can stay with the silvery finish but even that isn't necessary (and I probably wouldn't). Maybe a wood fixture with a silvery or burnished gold with silver finish. . . .

Your picture of the Clemson looks like opaque white glass, but is it actually clearish ribbed like this one? I'm posting it in case it helps others brainstorm a good companion:

If you do a search on on "clemson pendant" you'll see some pictures of kitchens that have it plus other kinds of lights, like this picture:

and this Grosvenor downlight which comes in a 3 light and a 1 light; looks brassy here but it also comes in a pewter/dark silver finish:

Would something like this match the Clemson pendants?

Thanks again for any input!

Go with something that is similar to your other light fixtures.
There are a few samples in the link.
