the scale of your dining room light fixture

I am often asked about how big a new dining room light fixture should be. There are all kinds of rules you can find out there like this, but what about being different and unique? Well, I say go for it and throw those rules out the window!

I think I may be going for something new in my own dining room so I'm exploring - here are some scale and design shockers for you. Would love to know what you think of them.
