One of the most popular options for illuminating island workspaces, pendant lights allow you to place and direct light where you need it. Choose from glass options, such as those shown here, as well as versions that feature metal or traditional drum-style shades. Pendants also come in a range of sizes, meaning you might select four smaller pendants or two larger ones to light up an island, depending on your style preference.
