Look!: Industrial Lamps in a Kitchen

Our mother had big French pendants in our kitchen growing up, so we went looking for more to install in this client's kitchen. We found reproductions at Urban Archeology which are very nice and easier to get your hands on...

Called Single Prismatic Lamps, they come in a few different styles and many different finishes for about $300 each. We particularly like how they cast an ambient light around the kitchen, while still directing a strong light on the counter. To accentuate this, we use small halogen floods to cast a sharper, warmer light.
