Which Kitchen Light Fixture?

Next month's house project will be installing a new kitchen light over our dinner table. I need help choosing which light fixture to go with! I am looking based on style. We rarely ever use the current fixture over our table because our kitchen already has recessed lighting installed.  Ok, here are the selections (I'm open to other suggestions as well, so leave a link if you have one).

One of these Allen + Roth candle chandeliers. There is an oval version and line version. Our kitchen table is rectangular for reference.

This modern glass fixture from Ballard Designs. I love the Edison light bulbs and it looks easy to clean.

Last, this circular light with black and wood that matches our kitchen table perfectly. It looks much better in person and also has Edison light bulbs.


  1. I love your taste, Marjorie :). I think my favorite would be the first. Or the third.

    1. Without seeing your table and the room it is going in, I can't vote.

    2. Click the "kitchen" label under the post above and it will pull up images of our kitchen and table.

  2. My favorite is the Ballard design one! I love the modern look, the fact it's rectangular like your table and I like how you can change the bulbs and have different looks.
