I love a lantern style and I kept seeing tons of them. The sizes and prices were all over the board too. Most that I saw were kind of small - around 10 to 12 inches wide. That just seemed way too small for the breakfast table. The breakfast area measures 9 x 11 and the table is 6 ft. long, so I needed something with a little size. Not huge, just bigger than 1 foot.
I finally found this one at Wayfair. Antique gold is the perfect color and this one measures 30" high x 20" wide. I think that is the perfect size.
Slightly Coastal suggested a lantern light and a couple of pendant lights. The lantern she suggested was just a little too small I thought, but the pendant light was stunning. I think it will be the perfect thing for the peninsula. These are from Amazon and on sale at half price. I think they will give off the perfect light and be just the accent that I am looking for. I love them.
So, lighting is on the way and my contractor is replacing the track lighting with pot lights, so I am a happy camper. Can't wait to see it all come together.
Thanks for all your input everyone, you guys are the best.
