I think most design lovers seem to have certain elements of interior design that they are especially passionate about whether it’s textiles, art, seating, or in my case, lighting. I have a special weakness for beautiful lighting (and chairs!) and feel very strongly about the importance of great lighting in a space. Like jewelry, it is the finishing touch that brings everything together and makes a design feel complete. Lighting serves many purposes—ambient, architectural, and task. In the kitchen, it especially serves all of these purposes and acts as the jewelry of the room. Below, I’ll share a few examples of beautiful kitchens with fantastic lighting as well as my “Top 10” list for kitchen pendants that are stylish, versatile, and will stand the test of time.

These are all so beautiful! I too have a weakness for lighting. I would have to say the Hicks Pendant is my all-time fave.

The Hicks has always held my heart but I am in love with #6! The gold interior is to die for!

They have their own equal beauty and each kitchen pendant lights deserves a spot. But one this is for sure, it will make or break its beauty depends on where you are placing it. Nice list.
