Is semi-flush mount weird over a penninsula?

Cross posting from kitchen forum..

Demo starts in two weeks and I need to figure out my lighting fixtures. I'll have plenty of recessed lighting but wanted to add some pedants over the 87" long penninsula and sink for some added visual appeal. I love the look of the chunky "lantern" style but they are all so large and I have 7 1/2 foot ceiling so I think it will look bad. I came accross this fixture that I liked. Would I do one centered or two,spaced evenly between the chairs?

And this one for a different look:

Anyone have pics they can share of semi-flush mount lights over your island or penninsula?

I've looked at so MANY fixtures at this point that I'm numb.
