Opinions Wanted - Kitchen Island Fixture(s)

I've been agonizing over which light fixture to put over the kitchen island.  And I need to decide now - because the electricians are getting started.  It makes a big difference whether it's a single fixture or three separate pendants when they install the wiring!

So here's what I've been looking at:

Option 1 - A somewhat traditional island light, with brushed brass trim and opalescent globes.  Simple, but elegant and it will provide a lot of light.  But I'm not sure I'm crazy about the opalescent globes.
Option 2 - Individual pendants - most likely 3, lined up over the space.  This is a great traditional option, with classic appeal.  
Does it look familiar?  That's because I used it in the Craft Room of the Colonial With a Twist.  I loved it there!   
So what's your vote?  Option 1 or 2?

  2. Option 2. It is a more classic and timeless look and will appeal to a wider general audience. For some reason the first option looks more contrived. Option 2 for sure!

  3. Option 2 as everyone else has agreed.

  4. Option 2 for sure! I love that light fixture!!

  5. I love the idea of option #1 but don't love the fixture. So I go with the masses on the options presented. But, what about this one: or this:

    So fun to follow along!

    1. Thanks so much for reading the blog Cathy! I love the fixture you picked out, but I'm looking for a brushed brass finish for this house……which has made this a bit of a challenge! Maybe I can figure out a way to incorporate it in my next house!

      Thanks again, Laurel

  6. If you're thinking about the installation for resale soon down the road, go with option 1. It's easier to change one fixture than three. On the other hand, if you're doing it for yourself, go with option 2 :-) No help here, right ;-)
