Which island pendent should I choose for my kitchen. Help please.
My junction box over my island is off center and I don't want to patch it to move it. Here is my kitchen and what I'm thinking. Thanks
The kitchen is getting countertops installed. (Ill post a pic of the color)
The first light is 17"H x 13"W
Second light is 20"H x 9.5"W
My island is 36x61 or 62
The 3 rd light is the light I want to put in over the table.

Thank you for all your help

All the lights you showed look like dining room chandeliers. None look like pendant lighting for the island. Am I confused?

I was going to go with this but it's 13 x 13 and very heavy. Then I couldn't figure out what style table light to go with. Ugh I'm feeling very confused. I like the look of this light and the look of lanterns... Not crazy about "pendants" per say

Yes, those pics above are great. You need to be careful to let your chandelier over the table have the spotlight. The pendants should be the same feel but smaller especially since you'll probably have more than one pendant light, yes? Here's a simple black wrought iron pendant...is this what you have in mind?

I'm not crazy about much lighting especially for bathrooms over the sink. Mostly all bad. Pendants are a little better. I like the one above that you show but it is a little clunky.

Also depending on what lighting company you choose, they often have families of lights so you can match the metals and styles. (I work for a lighting shop.)

Leelee,
I like the normal pendants like you showed but feel its very cookie cutter. I like a cross between transitional style and modern country. I feel like the normal pendent is a bit more traditional. Here is others I have considered

Cliptix,
I have to do two pendants bc my junction box is very off center and I don't want to involve patching the ceiling. But I like that light a lot.
At lighting stores I have found it hard to find ones that I like all in one family.
That's why I thought going with a home store (these are Ballards design) I could get the same color finish without matchy matchy

I agree, less matchy is more interesting and more choices are available.
