Kitchen Island Light Inspirations

I have an entire board on Pinterest dedicated to “bright lights”…. lights that are so beautiful, so full of charm, they’re statement pieces.  I have wanted to replace our recessed lights above our breakfast bar for a while… but I haven’t been able to commit to a style of light yet. 

I know I want two pendants.  I know I have a “certain” style, but still… can’t pin point a particular exact light I want. 

I think I’ve “narrowed” it down to these 8 amazing options. 

What do you think?

1. Hammered Nickel Pendant 2. Globe Pendant 3. Glass Globe Industrial Pendant

1. Meridian Pendant 2. Glass Industrial Pendant 3. Laboratory Glass 4. Mercury Industrial Pendant

1. Outdoor Nautical Pendant

I seriously love

I love the round ones because they’re traditional, simple, classy.
I love the industrial pendants because they’re fun, modern (yet with a hint of history), and make a statement.
I LOVE the non-traditional one because it’s so unique, it’s made for outdoors, but I would love it’s petite size above our breakfast bar.

What are your votes!!?


  1. My favorite one is number 1 in the second category. Its fun but classy and I feel it would be a good size and shape for above a breakfast bar. I really love the 3rd globe in the first category as well. The chain link cord is just awesome.

    Hopefully that helps a little bit!

    1. Thanks for your opinions! I really do like that #1 too! :)


  2. I am totally loving the glass globes right now.


  3. We have the non-traditional one in our bathroom (which you can see here in brushed nickel. We really love the look of it and it was a great size for the space. BUT it doesn't throw a lot of light. If you are looking for just a supplementary light then I think it's perfect.

    1. Ohhhh that's really good to know! You may have just helped me cross that one off my list because I do really need ones that give off good light. It's the spot I do a lot of my working.

  4. I love the glass globes, #3.

  5. I like #1 in the Industrial group and #3 in the Round group. Have a great weekend!

  6. I like #2 in the round group, it's kind of quirky and cool.

  7. be sure to check the amount of light put out by those "fancy" bulbs and the price can be shocking.


Love hearing back from my readers, you make my day! Thanks, Pamela of PBJstories
