And,there was light…

September 27, 2012

and another light and another..and yes…another. While I can appreciate the trend of multiple pendants over a kitchen work surface I have to wonder how these trends continue. Sure, the repetition can be pleasing to the eye,but  fixtures that are hung this low over your prep area are only workable if your kitchen posts a warning, ” Must be under 5 feet tall to work at this counter”.  I love most everything about this kitchen; the simplicity, the material and finish selections, the 1955 Arne Jacobsen stools in warm tan belting leather and the restraint in accessories. At 6’4″ I would, however, have to make a change and replace the assembled drops with something like my simplequietmodern staple; the white porcelain socket. Add the bulb of your choice and you will have provided adequate  illumination of quiet style without the obvious obstruction. What a great space to pull up a stool, pour yourself a cup and check some e-mail…or….do I smell pie?

  1. Ok, so this is where I arrived…. stalking your blog for new posts! 🙂

    As a tall lady (6’0″), I agree with you on the pendants. I did not even think about this issue when I saw this photo, so I appreciate your attention to detail. Looking at it now with different eyes, I realize that I would like it a whole lot better without the pendants.

    Thank you for mentioning my blog.
