Pendants With Personality

Pendants are an excellent way to create a focal point and introduce color to your kitchen. Whether you have one over your kitchen sink, or a few clustered above an island, we recommend replacing your standard pendants with colorful ones that resonate with your home. From sleek and modern to timeless and heritage-inspired, we're confident that we have the perfect pendant for your vision.


A Few of Our Favorites:

Ray 8" Pendant: An effortless combination of modern aesthetics and classic mid-century design, the Ray is especially ideal over the kitchen sink and is available in 14 striking hues.  

Sidnie Pendant: Perfect over an island, the industrial inspired silhouette of this classic pendant allows it to fit in seamlessly with any style. We recommend choosing it in Alder or Laurel for a more rustic look, and Persimmon for a bright color pop. 

Luna Rod Pendant: Everyone's favorite timeless design. The delicate, sculptural quality of the Luna will illuminate a room even when unlit. Available in a variety of sizes and colors, this moon-like pendant looks great when grouped as pendants or solo as task lighting or a chandelier.

Character Forward Lamps

If you're looking to add a pop of color to your kitchen, let's not forget the magic that bright lamps can bring to the table (or rather, the countertop). Incorporating vibrant and strategically placed lamps can instantly elevate your kitchen's aesthetic. Not only do they provide a touch of color, but they also give off focused lighting for meal preparation and other culinary tasks. Whether you place them atop your countertop, fridge, or open shelving, lamps are a great addition to any kitchen space. 


A Few of Our Favorites:

Teig: Thoughtfully named after the German word for "dough," (which makes it even more fitting for a kitchen) this petite lamp is the perfect size to adorn your kitchen counter or shelves. We especially love the way it looks atop a fridge styled with cookbooks and a potted plant or two. 

Ion: Available in an assortment of bright and cheerful hues, the Ion plays with color and material in elevated and unexpected ways. Plus, its small frame is the perfect size to nestle into any corner of your kitchen. 

Donna: Mid-century inspired, the Donna has a mushroom-shaped shade with uplight perforations that create a uniquely dramatic silhouette, making it ideal for adding a bit of light and intrigue to your kitchen countertops.

Striking Surface Mounts

An easy way to add a lively touch to your kitchen is through the use of colorful surface mounts. These subdued yet impactful fixtures offer a unique way to infuse your kitchen with color and character. 

Whether you're aiming for a single statement piece or a cluster of coordinating fixtures, we love the versatile arrangement options you can achieve with surface mounts. Consider placing a series of colorful fixtures above your kitchen island or dining table to create a captivating visual effect that ties the room together, or opt for a standalone fixture in a bold color above the sink to bring an unexpected pop of color to your space. 


A Few of Our Favorites:

Fran: An homage to San Francisco’s Victorian architecture, the Fran features a subtle scalloped edge much like the homes it was initially inspired by. Gracefully elegant, this one-of-a-kind fixture fits beautifully in traditional and modern spaces alike. Plus, it's available in 18 hues with endless shade options.

Alabax: Inspired by fixtures from a 1951 General Electric industrial catalog, the Alabax has a simple, tulip-like silhouette that works well with any style. Each fixture is expertly cast, trimmed, and glazed by hand with custom tones that range from neutral to eye-catching, making it simple to add a pop of color to your kitchen space. 

Cylinder: Elegant and versatile, this refined surface mount offers a luxe spin on the ubiquitous bare bulb fixture, and with 20 colors to choose from it's never been easier to find your perfect hue.
