But the real reason is, kitchen is a holy sanctum for food, and one requires proper light to be able to see food, when preparing or cooking it. Floor lamps will not have the power to light up the kitchen countertop as they will be lighting from below. But kitchen ceiling lights since they are above and all there energy is focused down, on the areas that require proper lights, are the best possible option to choose.

For example, the recessed or can lights are quite standard and most kitchen has these, some people even install them at the top or the base of the cabinets to illuminated the specific parts of the kitchen. But it has a flaw. Since it is installed at ceiling level the light it emits, is depleted when it falls on the counter top or the floor, not only this, but the cabinets and such also block the light and produces un wanted shadows, which ends up darkening parts if the kitchen. The same way the pendant has some advantages and disadvantages. The pendant can be used like a spot light, where it focuses on a certain part of the kitchen and you will not complain about the light being less than required in that area, but what about the rest of the kitchen? You will have to install many pendants like kitchen ceiling lights to properly illuminate the whole kitchen.
