We have a huge halogen lighting fixture in the kitchen now, but we didn't want to go with halogen again for energy efficiency and heat reasons. However, we also wanted to make sure that we still got enough light throughout the entire kitchen. The electrician gave us a few options, but the two we liked best were: 1) a new, normal-sized fixture and a couple of recessed lights or 2) recessed lighting throughout.
So we went hunting for mid-century modern kitchen lights to see what was out there in case we wanted to go that route.
There are, of course, a few Rejuvenation options:
And the Foton.
A few options from House of Antique Hardware:The Massena
All Modern has the Sonneman Puck
And the ET2-Percussion-3.
While Home Depot has the Lithonia Lighting Inertia.
But our favorite was the Jonathan Adler Parker ceiling light at Lamps Plus.
However, in the end we're going to go with the all recessed lighting option. It should make the kitchen look cleaner and more open (and hopefully taller). Plus, we're eventually planning a total re-do for the kitchen and an all recessed lighting look is pretty much guaranteed to look good with anything we do.
