Who else is still trying to wrap their head around it being June? I just don’t understand how we’re already here! Earlier in May I finally was able to put up our new kitchen island pendants, and you guys, they are everything I was hoping they would be. Remember this all started when we added the built in cabinets to our kitchen nook. If you missed that reveal, but sure to check it out here. New lighting in the nook bled over to swapping out our island pendants.
Previous Kitchen Island Pendants
I still love these Restoration Hardware Clemson pendants. I picked them up from the RH Outlet store when we were building this house and was giddy when they went up. They’re just classic. But, I wanted to go a different direction with lighting in the nook and couldn’t make these tie in. I also had fallen in love with different pendants a few years ago, and couldn’t get the other ones out of my head.

New Kitchen Island Pendants
And here they are! I went with these in the old bronze finish. They are HUGE and beautiful and totally give the kitchen a new feel.
These are so much larger in person than they appear in photos. The size is great in the kitchen though, especially since the living room right next to it has such high ceilings. Do you see how the black cuff at the top of the pendants tie in with the black pieces that hold the glass cylinders in the nook’s chandelier?
It took what felt like forever to get these pendants in due to problems with damages during shipping, but the wait was absolutely worth it in the end. My husband suggested I find different pendants when they kept coming in broken. I tried explaining how the pendants were my starting point for all of the kitchen lighting and the reason I went with the chandelier in the nook. When I had to rework the chandelier to hang lower he suggested I find a different chandelier. Can’t do that either because it tied in with the pendants I had my heart set on. It really was just a humorous mess! But it all worked out.
Ok, so what are your thoughts on our new kitchen island pendants? It always amazes me how just swapping out a light fixture can completely change the feel of a space.
