We know how much so many of our customers love Visual Comfort Lighting fixtures. We do too! We found the choices in these photos from the ceiling to the floors to be incredibly inspiring...so much so that we don't have a favorite. But, YOU MIGHT...so go through the photos, take your time and get it touch if you see a fixture you MUST HAVE!

A coastal-style kitchen is often associated with waterfront homes of the East Coast, Florida Keys, or California Coast. However, this seaside look can present a relaxed and refined style that can easily suit houses located anywhere. This is because a coastal kitchen can be classic, casual, or anything in between. These bright and airy seaside designs present many ways to bring the beach style home, from ocean-inspired hues and sandy neutrals to natural materials. So dive in and be inspired by the easygoing elegance of these chic coastal kitchens featuring a wide range of Visual Comfort ceiling light fixtures.

Lanterns, in all shapes and sizes are everywhere and trending up. Everything about these Chatham Lanterns, from the canopy and chain link to the beautiful glass and gold accents perfectly compliments this bold kitchen.

Though the same cabinet company is used, this kitchen has a more casual feel with the shaded pendants and lighter floors.
