Hi guys! I posted this in the home decorating forum but since I'm usually hanging out here, and I know you guys have exellent advice, I wanted to see what your thoughts are.

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 matchy.

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!!

That reminds me of the fixtures from school house electric.

Depends on your style, but if you want that same classic early 20th century american feel, how 'bout:

Love Barn Light Electric schoolhouse lights!!!

We ended up switching gears but originally we were hunting for very similar ones. This Old House magazine this month had some inexpensive school house lights listed in a Save vs. Splurge. Might be worth grabbing a copy of this months to check it out.

I would check out Rejuvination, too. It is such a classic fixture that anything simple in the same metal finish would work well with it.

Google sonneman bistro fixture

Check out restoration hardware

and visualcomfort.com

Actually I think most of restoration hardwares are made by visual comfort

Once you find one you like, be sure to type it in to nexttag before buying. I've found a few visual comfort fixtures for 400 less via nextag
