We recently added kitchen island lighting fixtures to our online shop! It’s always challenging to hunt for the perfect kitchen island lighting solution. With more than 20 different lights to choose from, these grand kitchen island lighting fixtures will add the perfect aesthetic and lighting to your kitchen space. One of our favorites is from Currey and Company – the Broxton Rectangular Chandelier. This large kitchen lighting fixture features orb shaped lighting elements and harken back to the era of Edison and Tesla. This vintage modern styling and a steely Pyrite Bronze finish make the Broxton an intensely appealing piece.
The kitchen island has become a must-have in kitchen home design because of its form and function. In fact, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), islands are one of the most popular kitchen design features among today’s consumers. The report claims that approximately 80% of home buyers consider a kitchen island a requirement.
Because the island is a place where people congregate, your kitchen island deserves to have proper lighting. We’ve seen pendant lighting serve a prominent role in lighting this space, but you should also consider stand-alone kitchen island lighting fixtures – meaning one light fixture. One installation means fewer electrical components and hassle.
Below are five kitchen island lights” we’re loving” from some of our favorite lighting manufacturers.

Murray Feiss 3- Light Island Chandelier – Beckett Collection
Currey & Company Fitzjames Rectangular Chandelier

Lately we’ve seen the kitchen colander go from straining spaghetti to streaming light. Designers such as Nadia Belalia have adopted this new lighting style, and we couldn’t agree with this idea more.
Colanders were destined to be lamp fixtures with those tiny holes to help diffuse the light’s glare. The colander pendant light above is a lovely addition to a dim pantry, over the kitchen sink or another area of your kitchen that needs a spot of light.
This is the latest customized lamp we’re seeing come through the doors at Concord Lamp and Shade and we think it’s a whole lot of fun and certainly a conversation starter for the kitchen!
