Kitchen Island Lighting

I'll admit, I am a little bit of a lighting and lamp glutton. Lighting is the magical ingredient that can completely transform a room. Lighting is not something that you want to do without or hold off on updating. Light fixtures are without a doubt my favorite thing to shop for because they are the most high impact. 

In my opinion, old light fixtures, lamp shades, flush mounts and sconces can age a house more than anything else. Updating all the light fixtures in your house can completely freshen the look and feel of a space. First, let's focus on kitchen island lighting. Below are some of my favorite kitchen island lighting looks.


Drum Pendant Island Lighting

I've always loved drum shade pendants. They are classic, always in style and can go in pretty much any room in the house. I am really loving these scalloped drums over this kitchen island! Drum pendants do obstruct the view so make sure to hang them above eye level.  Get the look with this scalloped drum shade pendant from the always trending Regina Andrew lighting collection. This light fixture is available in two sizes. Pictured here are three of the smaller size pendants. 


Aged Brass Pendant Lighting

Make a statement with this antique brass quatrefoil fixture. I love the sturdy rustic beams mixed with the slender elegant lines of the Large Athena Chandelier from the Gabby Home collection. It looks great in this modern farmhouse kitchen but if you don't have exposed timber beams or if rustic just isn't your thing the Athena Chandelier from Gabby Home is versatile enough to go in a transitional or modern kitchen as well. Love this simple, elegant fixture! Available in multiple sizes. Pictured below is the large Athena Chandelier 


Transitional Glass Pendant Kitchen Lighting

I am loving the Moderna Pendant from the Worlds Away lighting collection over this kitchen island! The tiled clear glass allows for maximum light and the geometric lines on the pendant give it a  modern touch. Updated, fresh and something different the Moderna Pendant is a fabulous way to give your kitchen a fresh, bold look.

There are a few variations for this fixture. It is also available in a smaller size (check out the single light Mariah Pendant) and comes in a mercury glass finish.


Rustic Industrial Island Lighting

A vintage dress form shape inspired the designers at Gabby home to craft the Lucia Pendant. A rustic pendant over your kitchen island is a great way to achieve a sophisticated look that works with real, everyday life. Though it leans modern farmhouse, this pendant can work with any style decor from an industrial bachelor pad to an all white kitchen with marble countertops. Warm, vintage filament bulbs are a must with this pendant!


Lantern Island Lighting

A clean and simple silhouette may be just the thing to make your kitchen current with this up to date contemporary take on the classic and timeless lantern. Get the look with the 5 Light Camden Lantern from the Regina Andrew Designs.


Globe Pendant Lighting

I really love every fixture on this post but this one is my favorite. This clear globe pendant is stunning.  Glass orb light fixtures are trending right now but this is the only one I have found that has multiple lights in each globe. Put a group of two or three over your kitchen island for a clean, transitional transformation. Put these fixtures on a dimmer and keep them barely on at night- gorgeous!


Moravian Star Pendant

Reminiscent of a 19th century European tradition, Worlds Away brings us their Moravian Star Pendant. These stars were placed in windows in the days leading up to Christmas but they can add a magical touch to your home year round. Brighten your kitchen with these whimsical on-trend star pendants.

I love all of these! Could we put the Athena Chandelier over the kitchen table?
