Geometric Modern Kitchen Lighting: Task lighting gets a fashionable rethink

Kitchen lighting is boring. I’m hunting for options for a great little recessed alcove in my kitchen that won’t lower my ceiling, but will provide a modern look and good task lighting for kitchen work. Here are two from my shortlist. Which do you prefer?

LED Lighting Fixture: Geometric and Angular. This fixture works very well for a recess we have in our kitchen (we’re fortunate to have the space for a kitchen chandelier. Without that recess, we’d be more than happy with the Lemonbest recessed LEDs in the rest of our apartment, but we’d like to kick it up a notch). ¬†Downside: this chandelier doesn’t come with bulbs, so we’ll need to buy 2 backs of these LED bulbs if we don’t opt for cheaper halogen lights. I’m pretty sure this photo has LEDs in place, and they look gorgeous.

I’ve also spoken out about the Moooi-esque “Dear Ingo” chandelier, which is better known as the spider chandelier.¬†This is a perfect example of form meeting function, and this link sells the Dear Ingo for a fraction of the retail price.
