Featured Customer | Porcelain Pendants Add Punch to Kitchen Makeover
When Beth, a Delaware resident, decided to punch up her turn-of-the-century kitchen, she didn’t just change up the paint color and pick out new counter tops.
“This was a complete remodel of our kitchen,” Beth says. “We very much changed the layout and took out a back hall closet to gain some much needed space.” And like so many other homeowners who are making improvements to their space, Beth turned to magazines and websites for inspiration for the kitchen lighting.
“I saw these exact lights advertised in a magazine and thought at once that they would be wonderful,” Beth says in describing our Ivanhoe® Sinclair Industrial Porcelain Pendant. Beth installed two of the porcelain pendants over the center island and one over the sink. She chose a Cherry Red finish with a contrasting black porcelain finish for the canopy. For the mounting, Beth selected a Black Cotton Twist cord to add to the vintage feeling of the lights. For the crowning vintage effect, she added an authentic Double Loop Edison Style Light Bulb in each one.
Based on original 1930s designs, the Sinclair follows a simple industrial style that offers timeless appeal and fits perfectly in Beth’s new kitchen space. The Sinclair is American-made andhand spun from commercial grade steel by our metal artisans. Two coats of porcelain enamel glass are hand applied, then the shade is baked in our porcelain oven to produce that signature glossy finish that will never fade. And Beth can sit back and enjoy her coffee knowing that minimal maintenance is required to keep that shiny finish looking like new for years to come.
“We actually like everything about our new lights,” she says. “The interesting red color and finish, and even though our kitchen is basically turn-of-the-century, these pendants add a sort of fun retro look to it.”
