To follow up on last week’s Montage: 32 Kitchen Island Pendants, here are 41 styles of modern kitchen lighting pendants petite enough to hang over the island. You can see I tend to veer to an industrial sort of style, and certainly favor the bare bulb aesthetic. I detest the red and cobalt cylinders so often found in newly built kitchens. I included a couple of colored glass specimens here, but they’re either a semi-translucent sky blue, if opaque, in a mid-century modern silhouette.
I actually don’t have pendants over the island in Boston or the Cape. (I do however have a trio of #13 over the kitchen banquette table.) I prefer the clean look of recessed lights over an island, but if I had to have some, I really love these. My favorites are #5 and #41. These and more from StyleCarrot partner sites.
