An architect friend recently installed the Varick Chandelier from the high ceiling of his kitchen, and it looks fantastic. Its complex sculptural form draws your attention, while the light glows warmly from the vintage bulbs (do install this on a dimmer).
He bought the large size, but the two smaller sizes are lovely too. If you want to get more fabulous, it also comes in shiny nickel.
