The Star range hood by Elica

The idea that a glittering chandelier can work in any space has moved into the kitchen—right over the cooktop. Elica just introduced a line of range hoods that not only ventilate but also (glamorously) light up your stove. Shown here, the Star, made up of hundreds of glass prisms (about $3,750). There are also shaded-pendant styles; all models use halogen bulbs. Available through designers in late summer at Elica, 947 Merchandise Mart, 312-410-7343;
