Good Questions: Light Fixture for the Dining Room?

Hi Apartment Therapy, Attached is a pic of my dining area and portion of living space next door so you can see some of the colors/materials that share the joint space. I don't know why I'm having such a hard time finding a light fixture for over the dining table, but I am. The electrical box is also off center in the room and will be moved. I've debated using the Moooi random, but small seems too small and medium too big...

The ceilings are standard 8' in the dining area and I'm also concerned about the medium hanging too low. Nothing I see feels perfect in size and feel (and price... I think $1k is my limit). The table is a little narrower than most at 34.5" (and 90" long)... another challenge when it comes to the "rule" that a light should be 12" narrower than the table. I'm not a rule follower, but I also don't want the light to totally overwhelm the table and room. Any advice on fixtures would be appreciated! Thanks, Lo

Who has suggestions for Lo?
