We are trying to figure this out as well. We love the Benson Pendants but only have 8' ceilings and don't want them seem overwhelming. Our island is 10ft. Any suggestions on number of pendants and size?

We are putting in an island that is just under 8' x 4' with sloped ceilings that will be around 9' above island. Would you recommend the Benson or Harmon? How do I know what size to go with? Would two 13" be enough? Would you suggest matching the sink and faucet to the lights? We will have a vibrant stainless faucet and a stainless steel sink with no finish. White cloud quartz counter and white cupboards. Our backslash has the brushed stainless amongst grey/black horizontal rectangle glass. Thanks in advance.

13" would probably work just fine. You can get away with two, we would just advise that you make sure there's not more than 3 feet between them. Three would really be better. If only doing 2, we would advise you go with the 15" Harmon.

Elizabeth, from the bottom of the fixture to the bottom of the rod is 19". I have the 6" rod, then the ceiling cap is another 4.5" for a total of 29.5". The bottom of my lights are 30" above the countertop. Floor to countertop is 36". Hope this helps!

Linda, what would you suggest for a square Island that is 51" x 51"? We were thinking of using 2 Benson pendants, but we are unsure whether we should buy the 7" or the 13" pendants. We need your help!

It is a 2cm Carrera marble. The thickness of the countertop is usually based on the material. Marbles and limestones are usually 2cm and granites are 3cm. Using a 2cm in the kitchen is fine but just be aware that marbles and limestones are softer stones so they have to be treated a little more delicately than granite. You can’t sit anything hot directly on them and they stain and scratch easier.

What are your thoughts on the Benson vs. the Harmon pendants for 8ft ceilings? I like the Benson, but I'm afraid the shade/casing part will look huge with a stubby little rod! Do you think that will be the case? I will most likely need the 13" Thanks!

We love the elongated shape of the Benson light fixture but you are right. In an 8’ ceiling we would recommend the Harmon pendant.
