I'm trying to decide on a light fitting for our dining table in our open plan area.
We have 3 of these pendants over the kitchen island, it's matt black on the outside and shiny hammered silver on the inside:
I want one large light fitting for over the dining table.
Current options are:
Sky Garden (90cm):
We're favouring the Spiro but wondering if it would look odd, even though it's still black and matches the kitchen pendants in that respect. Also a bit worried that the last one would be too matchy-matchy, and it might be a bit small.

Last one if it were bigger. Depends on budget. There was one I liked but not sure of the price. cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0782/3703/products/Large-Dome-Pendant_light_large.JPG?v=1433499430

I have to admit, I find the last one to be a bit... lack-lustre, and I would probably be disappointed every time I looked at it. The one in your link is nice and big, but a bit too rustic for my style

Oh yes, I remember you mentioning that one before but it totally slipped my mind! Thanks for reminding me. I like it much better than the Alfresco.

Sky Garden from me also.....
Thanks Michelle! I like the relief on the sky garden but hubby's not so sure.
Do you think the Spiro would look terribly out of place?

I actually like the spiro. Same colours but makes a statement over the dining table. I don't think you want them matching but instead to compliment. I still can't decide on either as well. By this has given me some ideas. Thank you.

Spiro first, then Sky garden!
I depends also on your wall colours I reckon, if it more on the creamer side the stark white of sky garden might be too much. The Spiro has that home feel to

Relatively in expensive, they cost around $15 ea. Not to bad for a nice looking bulb?

Thanks. I think I need something that ensures each end is pushed in rather than clamped though. Any ideas for that?
