I've found some pendants on sale at Beacon that I'm thinking of getting for our kitchen island. They are 3 grouped in a cluster at different lengths that I will put at one end of bench. Only $208 atm.
Originally I wanted these ones, but they are all individual lights that add up to over $600. So thought the above might be a comprise lol.
But I'm worried they might not be long enough??
We will have quite high ceilings at 3094mm, the total length of the pendants (the lowest one) is 1260mm. With a benchtop height of 900mm, that leaves around 930mm from the bench to the lowest light.
Do you think that will work?? Or do they need to be down further?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

At that length it goes down to 1834 off the floor, and any lower than than you start running the risk of hitting your head on it if leaning over the bench, and also producing glare at eye-level. I don't know about the aesthetics though.

I'd say that would be about optimum height

In my opinion, you should stick to the initial plan. It is better to use high gloss for both. High gloss and matter are two extreme and therefore, they may not look well…
