Kitchen Island Pendant Design by Hinkley Lighting

Pendant Perfection

Most frequently seen over an island workspace, pendant lights are as striking as they are practical. The pair here is \"clean, classic and timeless. The brushed nickel finish and clean design of these striking pendants add a 'wow' factor, combining the best of form and function,\" says Kim Mager, Marketing Director at Hinkley Lighting.

\"Adequate wattage of bulbs for pendants, and the number of pendants used, have a direct effect on the quality of the light on the island for food preparation. Take care when placing pendants above an island to avoid them being too close to those seated at the island or too close to the cooktop, if one is installed on an island,\" suggests Susan Serra, CKD, CAPS of The Kitchen Designer and President of Bornholm Kitchen.
