These are great aren't they! If you click the "more info" button, they actually have been very nicely product tagged with a little green tag. Click on that tag and you can buy the lights directly online.

Check out the little table lamp as well...

what is the island top--carrera marble? or white granite

Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab
That looks like Cararra or possibly Bianco Joia, a similar marble to Cararra with a slightly different vein. If you're looking for a granite that's similar - try White Quartzite..

See note- granite that's similar to Carrara white quartzite

What is that "room" to the right, center of room, behind end table?
   Comment   September 22, 2013

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The lights hanging over this island, like the lights from most manufacturers, come in a variety of sizes. In this case, the designer went with two larger sizes instead of three (or more) smaller ones. The cloud-like appearance of the Logico Suspension Pendants disguises the fact that they're hanging in a pretty rigid line. The line formed by these pendants, when combined with the crown moldings in the room, combine to imply a ceiling. This technique is a way to take high ceilings and draw them down to a more human scale by focusing a line or series of lines between eight and nine feet above the floor.
Becky Harris added this to Modern Icons: The Logico Lamp
This is the triple nested version, where three of the lamps are clustered together. In this space, with all its varying ceiling heights, using two of these lamps draws the eye to their level. Tip: There's no law that says you have to have small glass pendants over an island (not that there's anything wrong with that). You may find that a unique sculptural light flying solo or in a pair may suit you.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Double Take: Unexpected Kitchen Lights
These sculptural, cloud-like Logico pendants are often seen over dining room tables, but used in duplicate here over this super-long island, they make an unexpected statement.

When it comes to kitchens, you could go in two different directions: select traditional cabinetry to contrast with a few modern accents (such as the lamps in the interior above) or ...

This modern ceiling light has me trying to remember the names of clouds from Mr. Frickman's seventh grade science class. It's not cirrus, it's not a thunderhead, could it be cumulonimbus? Or did I just make up that word. In any regard, the Logico Pendant will hang like a spectacular modern cloud over your dining table or kitchen island.
