Thank you for your inquiry! Those pendants are made by a company called Visual Comfort. You can go to their website to see who is a dealer in your area. Hope that helps!

Beautiful pendants. Are these a mix of stainless and chrome or all stainless metal? Thanks!

How long is the eating part of the bar (where the chairs are)?? Thank you for all your help!

Thank you for reporting this. Undo
Hi, follow up on the bar seating question. More specifically, is it the opening part of the eating bar 6 ft or the surface of the bar 6 ft? The latter would make the opening smaller than 6 ft as it includes the legs on both side. I'm trying to design my new island and is a few inches short from 24" per seat, hence the question. Thanks!

How do you decide how to design a multi level kitchen island?
   Comment   June 13, 2011
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
IMO - Needs, function and preferences are the basis for all good design:

To begin with, what function is the island serving? What hardware/appliances/plumbing (if any) does it need to hold? How much space do you have to work within? Where are the traffic patterns around the island? What are your personal preferences regarding the design of your island and your kitchen as a whole? How many people does it have to serve at one time? Are there any physical limitations for the individuals in the household who will be using it?

This island above could have been just as easily a single level, but it's clear to me that the owner wanted not only to have folks sitting at the island, but also a sort of separation between the workspace and the eating area as well as a sort of visual barrier between the clutter of the kitchen sink and the seating area that's most likely behind where the photographer is standing. The owner doesn't have young children - otherwise shorter counterstools may have been in order - and this isn't intended as a major eating/entertaining area either, hence only 3 stools rather than the 5 or 6 which could have been accommodated here...
...and there are probably no physical limitations or major bad backs in this household - so the dishwasher is mounted on the floor below the counter rather than raised up on a plinth under a raised counter which would make it easier for someone with a back injury to use without bending over...
...and there's nobody in a wheelchair here which would make a lowered counter workspace/eating area preferable.

Would love your advice on spacing with these sloane pendants - Hi, we are using these pendants in our new home and I'm not sure what the appropriate spacing between these pendants would be. We would greatly appreciate any advice. Our island size is 5x9 and we have these exact visual comfort pendants. Do you remember what spacing you used here because these look great?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Paul Anater added this to Classic Finish: Once and Always Chrome
The chrome pendant lights over this island take this kitchen's Rule of Three symmetry into the stratosphere.
Becky Harris added this to Photo Styling the Kitchen with Food
Realtors often tell you to boil apples before a showing, and this big wooden bowl of apples has the same homey and welcoming effect in a photo.
