Still looking for a new light fixture for over the kitchen table. Nothing yet has gotten the thumbs up. This might be nice ... not too heavy looking:
from Pottery Barn:
Barton Pendant (above)
Hand cast of iron and steel with a richly hammered texture,
this pendant has the rough-hewn look of a blacksmith's creation.
Twists in the metal accent its simple, graceful lines.
Or a style similar to this one from from Century
White-wash finish Scandinavian pine with suspended clear
beads trim and wrought iron with cast accents with raffia shades.
