Pendant help needed! Please...

kfhlFebruary 1, 2013

I am having a terrible time choosing pendant lights and my husband really wants the lighting done. The 2 pendants will hang from the beams above the island you might be able to seee the blanks where they will go. I like things that are simple for the most part. Our kitchen is far from done - no backsplash, no shelf under the hood, no accessories. We also will be getting a new kitchen table,banquette cushions,island counter stools, an area rug and furniture for living room and the list goes on... That is where most of our color will come from.
Our cabinet hardware and door hardware is orb - I wanted the contrast, but I'm not sure that I like a pendant shade in dark bronze - is it too heavy? I think satin nickel would work with all of the stainless or a glass shade, but I do worry about glare when looking at clear glass.
I can't find my camera battery charger so I apologize for the poor quality phone pics. It really isn't that dark.
Thanks for your help!

Choice 1 - Harmon Pendant in Dark Bronze

Choice 2 - Clemson in Satin Nickel

Choice 3 - Schoolhouse Pendant

I am open to any other suggestions you may have as well. Thanks!

Wow! That is one beautiful kitchen!

I am actually getting the exact pendant from Restoration Hardware and was pleased to see it among your choices. I think it will look great!

The schoolhouse pendant picture didn't post in case you want to edit your post.

I love the clemson pendant and think it would look great in your space.

I love those that you chose, but can I suggest one more for consideration? Circa Lighting's Andover pendant in aged iron. I think it would look stunning in your amazing kitchen.

I thought of it because your kitchen reminds me a little of this one:

inspiredisabel - which one did you choose?

Thanks for the compliments and your input. Sorry about the picture posting era - I fixed it.
I didn't consider the clemson at first, but I was thinking the lighting needed to match the hardware - I am over that now.
I have found several similar pendants that I like a little bit better than, but cost a lot more. Mainly at Circa - beautiful, but I also need wall sconces and a dining chandelier etc.

wi-sailorgirl - I love the Andover pendant - thanks for sharing it. I really appreciate the input. It might just be a bit too industrial for me. One of those things I see and think is really great, but maybe is a little too cool for me :)
