Kitchen Pendant Light Round-Up

I am in search of the perfect pendant lights for over a kitchen counter or island and I wanted to share my favorites. In a kitchen it is very important to have proper task lighting. Pendant lights are perfect because they can be adjusted to the right height above the counter to provide the best light for prepping, cooking and cleaning. In a kitchen it is important to layer the lighting, this can be done by installing: over head ambient light, under counter task/accent light along with pendant task lighting. Not that they have to be turned on all at once but the lighting in a space can make or break it!
