What light would you chose to go with these pendants?

Hi guys! I'm usually hanging out over on the building forum, but thought this might be the best place to seek advice for this topic!

We are building a home and are in the final stages. We don't have a formal dining room, but rather a large eat-in kitchen. I have an island and am planning to use this type of pendant over the island:

With the dining area being in the same room as the kitchen, the fixtures obviously need to be harmonious, but I don't want them to be too match.

So what would you put with these pendants if your were using them?

You guys have such great taste! Thanks in advance for your input!!

Angela - what is the overall style of your house? I have similar school house pendants in my kitchen, and in the adjoining breakfast room we looked at the Thomas O'Brien Reed Chandelier which seemed harmonious to us. We had to go with a slightly different chandelier for other reasons related to our table and ceiling height, but I liked the fit of this one the best.

Hey Marinagal! Thank you so much for responding!!

The overall style of our house is somewhat traditional I think. Most of the fixtures will be oil rubbed bronze.

I love the drum fixtures but I'm not sure how they will look with the schoolhouse pendants?

Here are some other pics of the house, to give you an idea...

Check out Schoolhouse Electric and Rejuvenation Lighting.

Love the first one Bev posted. Assuming they're in close proximity to each other, I'd want to be sure the metal color AND the glass shade color match. That can be the trickiest part if you're mixing manufacturers. Does the manufacturer of your pendent have other coordinating fixtures?
