Trend Study: Kitchen Island Pendant Lighting

The typical pendant light installation over a kitchen island has traditionally been three lights.  However, with recent trends toward large, over-scale light fixtures and very decorative pendants that are the focal point of a room, the trend is toward fewer lights that are larger scale.

Here are a few examples of island lighting with large-scale double pendants that are the main design element or "eye-candy" for the room.

And here are a few examples of stunning and dramatic single light installations!
