The owner of this house is also the owner of Galleria Lighting in Naperville. He sourced his lights personally- but i would check with Galleria LIghting first.

This has got to be one of my favorite kitchens on house. The color palette and design is simply stunning, and very functional.

We custom-make similar fixtures in that gorgeous fiery color, if you don't find a source!
