Ask DW: Oh kitchen pendant where art thou?

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

So my friends M & G are busy tackling a kitchen reno with pre-schooler running around not to mention an 8 month old baby starting to crawl. Good times I say. So they have asked me to help with narrowing down some kitchen pendant light options for their lovely mid-century bungalow. They are going with a classic white kitchen, white subway tiles and throw in some black countertops for good measure. They only want one pendant for a sloped kitchen ceiling and are leaning towards a indusrial chic look. I've listed some options below...what do you think?
Option 1 - Vintage Streetlight from Restoration Hardware. So far M&G have their eyes on this one.
Option #2- School house pendant also at available at Restoration Hardware. A classic and an easy fix. I would probably pick the bronze finish.
Option #3- While we're hanging out at Restoration Hardware, I have to say that this is one of my favourites, but not sure if it will give enough light. Filament pendant available at Restoration Hardware.
Option# 4- Okay maybe a stretch but wow...this one would grab your attention. Petra Pendant lamp available at Crate & Barrel.
Option #5 - Look at this modern piece? M & G..to modern eh? I like it though. Available at Morba.
Option #6 - love these Tom Dixon 'Beat Lights' and they look even better in person. Maybe an arrangement of 3 grouped together. You can pick up versions at Morba. love.

Okay maybe not an option here either but is this a crazy pendant light or what? Loving this Edison Chandelier. Available at Pottery Barn.

I am utterly obsessed with Tom Dixon everything. I'm thinking of how to approach my husband to convince him that we need to install a TD fixture about the bath in my ensuite. Which would involve reworking of a house we moved into less than a year ago. EEK!

#2 is definitely my favourite, followed by #3. But the first one says "industrial" to me more so than the others.

Option #3 is my favorite!

i'm thinking something in polished nickel would really pop as 'industrial' against the classic kitchen. I'm thinking the Hicks Pendant Light by Thomas O’Brien.

The Petra is an amazing, interesting piece and I do love the Edison from PB..a lot of different choices. Not an easy decision, I'm sure.
