Do the lantern provide enough "task" lighting?

In combination with the can lighting, the lanterns do; by themselves, the answer is no. They look gorgeous when lit as they cast little dancing shadows all over the ceiling!

Thank you for your response. How close (inches) do you suggest the can lighting to provide good lighting yet not over power and down light on the lanterns.

Hmmm. I would imagine it depends on the kitchen layout and the ceiling height. Ours is a flat ceiling and I believe the cans are approx 24" away, yet still giving true light to the kitchen. For task lighting, I would suggest a down light. I see you are looking at several different styles of lanterns/glass, we just used a West Elm glass globe that emits really nice light. I feel it is transitional, moving to modern. 11" glass globe, let me see if I can find the link.
