Whether it’s three identical pendants to top an island or a sconce in a particular size, being able to find exactly what you want from a large stock of fixtures is one of the big benefits of going repro. Most reproduction lighting companies offer a wide variety of interchangeable fixtures and shades, so your options are virtually endless. In addition, it’s easier to match existing finishes in your house (companies may offer up to a dozen finish choices) or order coordinating hardware suites.
Using a number of images of Bulthaup kitchens with lighting schemes and fittings designed by John Cullen Lighting, Thomas showed how layered lighting creates the most interesting effects from adding an LED strip under an island to create a floating effect or adding floor washers into a kick plinth to show off the floor finish. Thomas discussed how the introduction of LEDs has opened up a fresh new world of lighting possibilities but it was key to select the good quality LEDs with good colour consistency, colour rendition and colour temperature.
There is one instance in which the “rule of three” simply does not apply to island lighting. That is when you opt for big drama with big lights. Supersized pendant lights really only need to be installed in couples. Most kitchen islands simply are not big enough to warrant any more than two very large pendants. To get the look of maximum lighting impact (without going overboard) opt for two classic white, canvas drum pendants.
