You don’t mind paying more (or doing a bit of work). Fully restored vintage lights can be pricey, sometimes running into the thousands of dollars. Bargains abound, too, but keep in mind that lower-priced fixtures might require a bit of work. You’re on a budget. There are plenty of exceptions, of course, but generally a reproduction fixture will be less expensive than a fully restored antique one.
You don’t have time to search. For some people, the thrill of finding a one-of-a-kind fixture outweighs the time spent combing antique stores, eBay, and the like. But if you have a tight deadline in mind for your kitchen project, you may not want to wait for the perfect light to come along. With reproduction fixtures, what you see is what you get—today and six months from now. You’ll also have the peace of mind of knowing that if the fixture gets damaged (say, a shade breaks), you can easily replace it.
“You can stand at any point in the new plan and look through to the other spaces and even outdoors,” says Vitzthum.

The airy structure is articulated with posts and beams that provide visual transitions between the different rooms.
