@foofoo1960 We used to sing the "Little Rabbit Foofoo" song at summer camp when I was a kid--good times, good times. :)

You are welcome! To allow for non-combustible clearance of at least 4", counters that would typically be 24 or 25" deep go to 28"+.

I hope this is helpful.

The material on behind the range is just painted wall in the Farrow and Ball Skimming Stone.

Looks like a figure with magnifying glass for a head to the left of the sink. Gotta find it. Can you help?

Also thought I'd mention that Williams Sonoma offers a version of these pendants too.

avilla98 is correct. These are the Goodman pendants designed by Thomas O'Brien. The brass interior provides a dash of warmth during daytime and a gorgeous glow in the evenings.

About 16' square. It feels much bigger due to high ceilings, all the natural light and the open plan adjacent with family room, sunroom and hall.

We do not have that information handy at the moment. Similar can be found in polished nickel from reputable suppliers.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: Easygoing and Elegant in White, Cream and Gray
Tharp gutted the kitchen, which had an unfortunate 1970s orange and brown Brady Bunch vibe. “We wanted to make it look like a classic kitchen that had evolved over the years but kept true to its roots,” she says. She decided the kitchen story could include a remodel completed during the Edwardian era. “That time period allowed the kitchen to feel fresher and newer than an 1860s kitchen,” she says. Honed Jet Mist granite that resembles soapstone but is more durable, simple Shaker-style cabinets with latch hardware, cabinets with a furniture feel and the two-over-one windows surrounded by beautiful casings all lend history and classic style to the kitchen. Tharp also designed with the view in mind. Now that the kitchen is open to the family room, the two areas needed to be cohesive. (The windows and sink are directly across from the family room’s daybed.) The cabinetry, hardware and feet on the bottoms of the cabinets have a furniture feel. Concealing the dishwasher and refrigerator behind cabinetry panels not only helps the kitchen look more period-appropriate but also fits into the family room feeling. The cabinets and trim in both rooms are painted the same color. “The views across the two spaces are long. It feels more spacious yet still graceful,” the designer says. Cabinets: custom, Crown Point Cabinetry; cabinet and trim paint: Skimming Stone by Farrow & Ball; pendant lights: Thomas O’Brien Goodman 1 Lights, Circa Lighting

4. Oversized ImpactThis sublime kitchen in the historic district of Boston is awash in cream tones. But the dramatic oversized Goodman pendants by Thomas O’Brien above the butcher block island happily steal the show.

1. Easygoing Elegance in Massachusetts The Second Empire-style home with a mansard roof and lovely high windows occupied a prominent spot in town, but it had become “tired-looking,” says interior designer Lisa Tharp. Her clients were moving in from a more rural setting and were ready to make some changes that included paring down their things in pursuit of calm surroundings. The renovation preserved the beautiful 1860s architecture while creating spare yet comfortable living spaces.Tharp gutted the kitchen, which had an unfortunate 1970s orange-and-brown Brady Bunch vibe. “We wanted to make it look like a classic kitchen that had evolved over the years but kept true to its roots,” she says. Honed Jet Mist granite, which resembles soapstone but is more durable; simple Shaker-style cabinets with latch hardware; cabinets with a furniture feel; and two-over-one windows surrounded by beautiful casings all lend history and classic style to the kitchen.

5. Traditional. This classically handsome kitchen in Boston features Shaker cabinets painted in Farrow & Ball’s Skimming Stone and a wood-topped island. But it’s the pair of Thomas O’Brien Goodman pendants that demand the most attention in this serene space.
Toronto Interior Design Group | Yanic Simard added this to If You’re Looking for a Little Design Inspiration, Think Big
Oversize LightsSometimes you don’t need glitzy crystals or flashy materials to create drama with your lighting. Oversize pendants have been popular for a while, but they only seem to be getting bigger.A few pendants in a simple shape on a large scale create a statement above an island, over a dining table, in an entryway or even over a seating group. Let the pendants (two to three added together) be a total width that’s over two-thirds of the width of the surface below to give an island or dining table a strong punctuation mark.

4. Cream-colored cabinets. White is still the top choice for cabinet color, according to the Houzz kitchen report, but no two whites are created equal. Some paint companies offer more than 150 white paints — how do you choose? Many homeowners are moving away from the bright, stark whites and embracing off-whites that feel warmer and cozier, like Skimming Stone by Farrow & Ball, shown here in a Boston kitchen by Lisa Tharp Design.
