Kitchen lighting over island
February 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Dear designer friends....I need your help! Electrician is getting ready to install lights. I ordered 2 Fitzjames Currey and Co. lanterns to go over our kitchen island (each measures about 2 ft. diameter and hang 3 ft). We only have 9 foot ceilings and the island is 2 levels. My husband is 6' 5". Do you think these lanterns are too large? What is the traditional measurement of between the bottom of the lantern/light fixture and the island top? Please give me your opinion. This area is open to a keeping room....
