Ask a Designer - kitchen island pendant height

Question: 

1. How far down should over the island lights be?

2. Was trying to get away with one here...but do I need two?

Halo Design's suggestion:

You island looks like it is approximately 5'-0" in width.  I think that two pendants would be ideal given the length of the island and the style and size/scale of your pendant.  The ideal height of a fixture above an island is 32-36" or 68-72" above the floor since an island height is typically 36".
