Hi there! Glad you love them. They are Schonbek Chandeliers, and they were purchased at Creative Lighting in St. Paul, MN. Call the owner, Michael, he'd be happy to help. Have a great day!

Does this marble hold up with kids? I am considering it for my kitchen just concerned about staining or etching with little ones! Thanks

John Kraemer & Sons
The client has a couple kids, and to my knowledge, it has held up well. Marble is more porous and shows staining more than other options, so if you have kids, install marble at your own risk. Thanks!

The stone range hood is from Francois & Co. in Minneapolis, MN. I do not recall the ceiling height. Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Road test for comfort. Spend a good while sitting in any stool that makes your short list and look for potential trouble spots. Does it cut into your legs at an awkward angle? Do you feel secure leaning back? Is there a logical spot for your feet to rest? If you have the urge to hop down not long after you take a seat, you can bet your guests will do the same.
Samantha Schoech added this to Pick the Right Pendant for Your Kitchen Island
Two largish chandeliers take the place of the usual plain hanging pendant lights and give this kitchen lots of glamour. Together with the hood, they have a distinct French look.
