I’ve been poking around doing some basic product research — what’s new out there that might suit our old houses? Above: Oh my! The Kiki pendant light from Hudson Valley Lighting. This series comes in two sizes and four colors including — yes — I’m calling the one above Mamie pink! The pendant shade is enameled steel. I think that Kiki could look great over a round dinette in a crisp, clean mid century modern or mid-mod-meets-contemporary kitchen.
The website says these are specified for one 75-watt bulb. Some of the photos on the website show large, clear, modern bulbs used — a fun, modern look, for sure.
Above: In cream with aged brass — the colors used on the shades in this collection are gorgeous!
I also see that “Avery” is a kissin’ cousin to Kiki. Avery has the same colors, but in an upside-down bowl shaped housing.
Where to buy these lights
You can buy these Kiki pendant lights directly from Hudson Valley Lighting and I see them for sale elsewhere on the internet as well.
Hudson Valley Lighting has lots of lights to ogle — what fun it is to browse this site. Much of their product line is “contemporary” — but there are styles here and there that are a bit more throwback to actual mid century and mid century modern looks. Thanks to HVLG for providing me with these photos to feature!
