This is a perfect example of creating layers in your kitchen lighting – general, task, and accent. Recess lighting provides overall, general lighting. Undercabinet lighting provides illumination for tasks like food preparation and cleaning. Accent lighting is provided by in-cabinet lighting and pendants. All these layers work together to provide sufficient lighting for the various activities that happen in the kitchen. It also provides the homeowner with the flexibility to adjust the lighting in the kitchen depending on the activity.
The fixture over the eating area is the Disq pendant from Hubbardton Forge. Holtkotter Lichtstar mini pendants are shown over the kitchen sink and island.
