Unique Kitchen Lighting

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?

  1. Beautiful Ann! For me this is not practical with two chefs in the kitchen. For someone who uses catering extensively it is perfect.

  2. I think the fixture can work. It is no more in the way then a decorative column. Besides you can only do so much from the ceiling with looking like you tried to hard. It’s firm, clean,
    good style and it fits the room. Notice the space from the island? It does not intrude on work space of the top. Cool light.

  3. I really like the look of it! I wonder if it emits quality lighting without feeling like you’re in an interrogation room.
