What Style of Fixture To Hang over the Dining Table?

Good Questions

Q: I have created a small dining nook in the corner of my narrow 12 x18 living room. The style of the furniture in the room is a mix of mid-century modern, industrial, and Victorian, with a red/grey oriental rug on the maple floors. The walls are white. I would like to hang a fixture above the dining room table - something that will make 'a statement', but not completely overwhelm the room - you'll see it when you walk in the front door.

Currently there is no overhead lighting in the room - just a Kartell ghost lamp on a side table and a George Nelson bubble wall scone over the sofa. Apartment Therapy readers - please, I would love some suggestions regarding fixtures I might choose. I've been paralyzed for almost a year by this decision.
