12 Jun Light it up
Getting the lighting right in a kitchen can make all the difference to the mood and functionality of your space. From focused ‘task’ lighting to softer background and accent lights, there are a vast array of options to consider.
Particularly over tables and breakfast bars, there are many beautiful pendant examples to choose from. These lights can combine the functionality to light up a conversation space, with lashings of style in abundance. Often it’s where we find customers really add their own twist to their rooms with a pop of colour, or modern accent to contrast with traditional cabinetry. Lights can be hung singly or in groups depending on the space available.
This Eglo Caged Pendant Light from Dusklight is currently on sale for £33.02. Picture these as a trio over a breakfast bar for a real showstopper that doesn’t block the light.
Or if you prefer a nod to the coast in your kitchen, this lovely Yarmouth blue factory pendant features a two tone painted shade with a high-gloss finish. Complete with a fabric patterned black and white flex with wrapped detailing for a more modern finish. Available here from John Lewis, £55.
Softer lines inspired by Nordic autumn forests help this Acorn Pendant Light from The Northern Lighting company, priced at £358 become a modern classic. The soft tones will pair beautifully with contemporary or traditional coloured kitchens and would be a beautiful addition over a family dining table.
Or if you really want to make your mark, the Conran Shop can help with this unique piece by designer Mathieu Challieres. The La Volière Pendant Lamp, £395, showcases a magical aviary-inspired piece of art, perfect for accenting any kitchen with a vibrant menagerie of colour.
