I am obsessed with lighting. But having a modest budget doesn't get me the ones I covet in magazines, so Im asking for some of your opinions here. I love so many different kinds of light fixtures, I cannot decide on one for my breakfast room. This is the mess I feel I am at the moment:

Since I have long wanted to design and fabricate my own lighting, I thought I'd do the artsy thing
and pick up some chandeliers at Habitat for Humanity thinking I'll re-purpose/re-design them, but as Bethany aptly put, it is not the statement I want to make in my breakfast area of the kitchen. This is THE first thing you see when you come through the door, and will be on display in the picture window from the street, so it has to be THE RIGHT ONE!!!! And, as you know, lighting falls in our 'holy trinity' of ultimate accessories.
First of all, here is my breakfast table area ( devoid of draperies I'm making to flank the window):
These are some lights I am considering:

How is it that I have looked at thousands of sites online at lights, and I don't see the perfect one? I don't want a huge shade or structure that will obstruct our view out the window, so it needs to be open and airy, that is at least what Ive decided thus far. Any ideas? You can email me your pictures!!!
