New Pendant Lights In The Kitchen

Lighting is so personal, especially with decorative pendants and chandeliers.
They're like jewelry for your home.
In our kitchen, I knew all along that I would want to replace the three glass pendants when we bought the house.
But with what?

I like to think of our home like a tight ship, even somewhat nautical.
I envisioned something in brass, but finding a fixture that isn't too large was a challenge.

If there were only two pendants, I could go large, but with three, they had to be no more than ten inches wide. 

After weeks of searching online, I found this brass fixture called "Massena" from Hudson Valley Lighting.
It was what I had in mind all along!

Here they are newly installed.
I love how they add that nautical feel to the kitchen I was going for.

Up close you can see how there is a white porcelain element in the neck of the fixture, which casts refracted light on the ceiling at night.

These pendants hang with a down rod made of brass.
The fixture comes with many lengths, so you get to put together the length that works for you.

A little higher than the previous lights, but because they have much more presence, I think a little higher is ok. 
At nine and a half inches wide, they are perfect!

I'm loving the new look!
Isn't it funny how such a small change can make a huge difference?
Pin It!

I recently added a small brass light fixture over my sink, and couldn't be happier! Since I had recessed lights before, had to have an electrician install a new casing and drywall, but it works! Warms up the look in the kitchen! Love your new home and can't wait for the tour :)

Delores, they really do change the kitchen in a really good way. Much more of a presence than the old ones.
