Christopher Peacock follow up

Wa-a-a-a-y back in April, I wrote an entry about the amazing world of Christopher Peacock. I ran a couple of photos of his now-famous Refectory Kitchen. Here they are again.

That article gets a lot of Google traffic and I get asked about that Refectory a lot. I received a note from a reader the other day and she asked me about the pendants that are hanging over the island. I'd always assumed that since they were hanging in a Peacock publicity shot, that those lights would have to be originals. Well, I was mistaken.

The pendants in question are from Vaughan Lighting, a label only available to the trade.

It took a bit of sleuthing, but I found the answer to the source of those pendants on a blog called Willow Decor. Willow Decor is written by a woman named Gina Milne and I owe her a debt of thanks for solving this mystery.
