What Size Pendant Lamp Would Be Best?

What Size Pendant Lamp Would Be Best?

Q: I've got high ceilings and a hideous light fixture in my rental, and am looking to replace the flush lighting fixture with a pendant lamp to make the space feel a little cozier. I've identified two options and just realized that I don't know how to determine what diameter/size is right for the space:

One option, the basic Home Depot globe, comes in a number of sizes and the other one, sourced right here on Apartment Therapy, is a one-size fits all.

Would love some feedback on the choices. (By the way, what you can't see in this view is a pretty dramatic sculpture that hangs over the dining table, which is why the fixture needs to be a bit more restrained)
