Updated Classics: Kitchen Pendants

Discover fresh alternatives to popular design trends in our online series, Updated Classics.


Classic Pick: The schoolhouse pendant suits the functional vibe of a kitchen and the frosted glass seems to melt seamlessly into the white cabinetry. The lights’ tarnished brass base plays off the cabinet knobs for a cohesive effect.


Fresh Spin: There is no overlooking these hefty brass pendants: they offer a huge hit of glamor and put a pretty spin on classic industrial design. To warm up the pale cabinetry and Carrara marble tile, the warm metallic accents are echoed by the trim on the hood, as well as the faucet and hardware.
