Flos Lighting

A great kitchen design needs quality lighting. No matter how stylish your home looks, you won’t want to use your new kitchen if it is dark – especially at night.

I first wrote about Flos Lighting in 2007 (have I really been blogging that long?) in a post featuring the Arco Floor lamp positioned over a kitchen island. I think I like the idea a whole lot more now than I did then. The light comes in both incandescent and LED options.

If you prefer pendant lights for lighting your kitchen island, the Fucsia pendant is a great choice. It is not only stunning to look at, it will light your work surface beautifully.

These lights have a blown glass diffuser with a sandblasted edge and a silicone ring at the bottom to prevent movement.  They come in single purchase size or in groupings of 3, 8 or 12.

I found this kitchen on an Italian website and I was struck by the lighting for the island.

It is lit by the Achille and Pier Castiglioni Arco floor lamp. I have always loved this iconic light but I’m not sure I’d want it in the middle of my kitchen.

What do you think?  Is this an innovative idea or better as a photo prop?
