They look like the Benson Pendant from Restoration Hardware - either 7" or 13":

Littman Bros Lighting
The can lights appear to be a bit smaller than a standard 6". I would say they may be 4 inches.

As for the pendants look like Landmark.

How do you keep the porous marble counter top from staining from foods if there is a new sealer does it last years my marble top in my bathroom is very sensitive to StAining

You should clean and reseal every year or two. I have light marble counters in the bath and kitchen and they still look gorgeous 6 years later. Marble will last forever with just a little care!

I'm debating polished or honed and so confused. I've already taken the plunge to do marble against many peoples advice but now they are trying to talk me into honing it. I'm already honing my granite black island and am really battling. Can anyone shed some light especially the person whose had them for
6 years. Thanks and beautiful kitchen...

That definitely looks like marble to me - Calacatta marble to be more specific.

DeCocco Design
Sorry--I didn't mean the name of the paint is "just white." I mean that it's White. Most cabinet makers will have a white finish as a choice and I believe that this is what the color is. If it's a custom white, then my guess would be that it's a white base with one drop of black mixed in (by the paint store). We call that B1. It's a white with no other undertones. Looks great.
