You only need one or two lights. Like most antiques, vintage lights can be hard to find in pairs or suites. If coordinating fixtures is a concern, you’ll likely need to limit the number of lights you use. On the other hand, if you don’t care whether the chandelier matches the sconce, using a variety of vintage lights in similar styles (for example, Art Deco sconces with different backplates) can help facilitate an eclectic look, as if the house evolved over time.
In the more recent past, the home was expanded by 1,000 square feet to accommodate modern amenities—a den and garage in 1950 and an “Olde German style” family room in the 1970s. These new spaces, tacked onto the back and side of the house, took away the dining room’s sole source of natural light.
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.
