Having the right kind of lighting in your kitchen is obviously important. You need to be able to see when you’re chopping veggies, and you need to have the right kind of mood lighting when you’re hosting a party and everyone ends up hanging out in the kitchen.

These pendant lights can help with both of those things. And they’re all less than $90!
