Lighting Week: Kitchen Pendants

Sorry I missed you guys yesterday… big presentation and couldn’t fit in a shoot.  As a result of that, I will have to reveal my dining room chandelier another time.  But today you are still in for treat because I’m sharing my lovely kitchen pendants.  I waffled for awhile on what to buy but am so happy with my choice.  The mix of brass and glass is just the chic look I was going for the scale is perfection.  At 10″ wide they are substantial but not too big for my 54″ island.  Mini pendants are so JV in my book… I want something that makes a statement!  The fact that these are mostly see-through helps them from feeling too overwhelming and doesn’t block my back art-wall too much.

The pendants are by Shades Of Light and you can find them HERE.  At $199 each I thought they were a great price and nice quality.   I have two sticking points about the lights.  One, they take candelabra bulbs (60watt) which is a pain in the ass.  And two, the brass portion fully encloses the light so you aren’t going to get as bright of an illumination as with a fully glass pendant.  These pendants do not put out bright light.  I use them for ambiance or in combination with my recessed lights.  I wouldn’t use them alone to do prep work.  I still really love them and have no regrets, but I thought I would mention it if you are considering it and your space does not have alternate forms of lighting.
