Still trying to find lights for this kitchen

lorishopaholicAugust 20, 2014

I have posted a few times about my lights for my island and over the breakfast table. I found some that I think will look good but would love everyone's opinion. I posted earlier about putting a drum shade on my breakfast nook light to save on that expense but I don't think I can make it work. Anyway I found these light for the breakfast nook and some pendants that match. What do you think?

Woohoo!! So happy to have finally found something. Do you guys like the 5 light chandelier for the breakfast nook? I don't love it as much as the pendant but since it matches I was thinking of going with it.

I do like it. Those are pretty timeless. It'll be very nice when it's on at night.

Here are a couple of mock ups. Not sure about the sizing.

Hmmmâ¦based on atkillery's mockup, I like the unshaded ones over the island.

What if you did the shaded one over your breakfast nook and the two unshaded ones over the island?

I thought about that but I think the shaded light is too small for the breakfast nook. The current light is about 24x22 and the shaded one is 15x16. Thank you so much for the mockups atkillery!

No problem Lori. Let me know if you would like for me to do any others.

Very nice! I changed my mind too after seeing the mock-up and prefer the candlestick version. The color of the shade blends too much with the wood. It will all come down to the sizing though. I'm not a fan of massive pendants over islands, especially when there's a lot going on like in your kitchen.

To my eye, the unshaded pendants don't really look like pendants; they look like chandeliers that are missing arms.

Just for fun, a little bling. Probably not what you want but thought I would have some fun and throw it in there.

One more. Not sure about scale, might be a bit smaller than shown.

I like them all/each one a lot!
I just have to say that I like some drum pendants but not the vast majority~~ but those drum pendants are really lovely. Where did you find them?

Shelia, I think this is where she found the pendant she posted.

Here is a link that might be useful: Pendant Link

Shelia, yes that's were I found them. Atkillery, thanks again for the additional mockups! I actually really like the sparkly ones but I feel like I need to go with something a little more timeless. Holly-Kay- thanks! Which lights do you like for the island the drum pendant or the candlestick version?

I am weighing in and think the candlestick version is best. It doesn't obstruct your view throughout the space.
