According to the NKBA 2015 Kitchen & Bath Style Report task lighting leads the way (along with LEDs and undercabinet lighting) with more than 80% of kitchen designers specifying task lighting for the overall kitchen. Pendants fill this need handsomely and are now offered in many styles, finishes and scale to complement all design decor.
