Kitchen Island Pendants

I bought three mini industrial pendant lights to go over our island that will look exactly like the attached pic. Now I am worrying that they will be too much....Please let me know your thoughts.

Why change the beautiful look you have?

That's what they have in the model house, ours will be the same but we have to purchase our own pendants.

Industrial is very in and when it's out, then goodbye pendants. In the meanwhile, enjoy. You will have a truly lovely kitchen for a long time.

Any suggestions for something that might stick around for a while then? Or is that just how it will be with any pendant I choose?

Pendants will come and go. Enjoy the nice ones you have selected. I like that in the model they used simple barstools, not ones with backs or arms. Let the kitchen's beauty shine without the distraction of overly done barstools.

Yes, I like those better because I haven't seen them before and they seem to fit the style of the kitchen.

Are you planning on having a breakfast table with a pendant in the same location as in the model? If so, consider both fixtures when choosing a style. They do not need to match but they should be coordinated. I love silvered glass. Here is a fixture that has the casual style of the industrial pendant but in the silvered glass. http://www.napastyle.com/catalog/product.jsp?productId=3326

Any idea where I could find them or something similar? And yes, I plan to change the light over the breakfast area so if you have any suggestions for something that will look good with those pendants I would appreciate it!

I think a simple drum shade fixture would work well with the glass pendants over the breakfast table.

@ lcondreay-I included a link in my response for the pendants but here it is again http://www.napastyle.com/catalog/product.jsp?productId=3326

If you google "silvered glass pendants" or "mercury glass pendants", it will start you on your search.

I like Carolyn's drum shade pendant over the breakfast table. Look into Regina Andrew Design and Robert Abbey. Also consider a capiz shell pendant.

I happened to have this light in my ideabook so wanted to share the link. I really like your original choice though.
