As seen on HGTV’s Fixer Upper, the wall between this kitchen and dining room was removed to create an airy, open-concept space. The traditional-style dining table, rug, and kitchen cabinets are contrasted with more modern elements, like the metal pendant lights over the kitchen island and tile backsplash in an atypical shape.
The dark natural wood ceiling beam and matching wood base of the bar standout against the polished white fixtures of this kitchen design. The bar space is anchored to a column and set up with three metal barstools under a pair of pendant lights with an industrial flair. A chevron tile backsplash subtly decorates the room.
This farmhouse inspired kitchen is full of rustic and vintage detail. From the gold metal and tin pendant light to the ornate shelf brackets that match the hood range this kitchen is full of charming allure. The deep well sink is accented by the large kitchen window and wood grain tile backsplash surround with mosaic detail.
In this sophisticated kitchen, a floating metal canopy lowers the ceiling plane and cozies up the space. The light from the teardrop pendants goes through the cutouts making a compelling play of shadow and texture on the walls and ceiling. The wire brushed walnut island is moveable and detaches to serve as a wine tasting bar or buffet.
A custom picnic table and built-in bench serve as a dining spot in this country home. Mission-style metal pendant lights illuminate the table’s rich wood surface. Dark-brown cement floors and undyed-linen curtains blend in with the home's natural setting. But this place isn’t as rustic as it appears -- the cabinet in the corner houses a high-end refrigerator.
This Erinn Valencich designed this contemporary white kitchen that features a center eat-in island, white countertops, flooring and pendant lighting.

Halogen pendant lights suspended from an overhead support above the counter peninsula offer a creative lighting solution.
