Anyone tried this for island pendants? Need input.

CarolOctober 25, 2012
I am having a new home built with a large kind of U-shaped bar and would like to put a rectangular iron chandelier in the middle over the sink (looking into great room). It has 18 "candles" in it. I would also like to put some coordinating small stained glass pendants on each side of the U...has anyone used different sized pendants over their bar or island? I mainly see matching pendants. thanks for any input.

I don't know how big the U-shaped bar is, but with lighting, I think less (variety) is more -- the rectangular iron chandelier sounds pretty large, so it's probably a statement on its own without having adjacent other-pendants to the sides of it.

It also probably gives enough light that you wouldn't need additional lighting? Over my island in my kitchen, I used to have 3 matching pendants, but I ended up going with just 1 larger light fixture and capping the other two placements (you can kind of see that in this photo):

I bet the bar will look fantastic with any lighting you choose!

thanks for your input, appreciate it! Each side of the island is about 5' so a big one...two level. The rectangular iron/candle fixture is about 30" wide and would be centered in the middle. Since the kitchen and granite are neutral wood tones with black appliances and white granite, thought maybe a small bright green or stained glass pendants would bring in some color in the middle of each of the side sections....your kitchen is georgous, thanks for sharing! Good points.
