Island fixture

I have an island that is 60" long and found a light that is 47". Is that too long for the island? Also, have stainless appliances, faucets. Is it OK to go with bronze over island? Cabinets are white

Any chance of a photo of the space and the fixture in question? Ideally you want 12-16" from the edge of the island/table (for aesthetics and so nobody bumps their head) HOWEVER, the "visual weight" of the fixture does play a roll on how big you can go.

What is the style of the kitchen? Consider using track lighting that is also stainless. Track lighting is usually long and will look perfectly with the island.

I don't see a problem going with a rubbed bronze. It's more important that any fixtures nearby share a similar finish rather than trying to match the appliances IMHO. Do they by chance make that fixture in a double rather than triple shade? A double-shade would be less "weighty" I believe. Maybe similar to these?

Unfortunately this one only came in triple. Here are 2 other options we were looking at

Great idea with the transom cabinets!
I would lean more toward the second photo. Also, I assume you have only one junction box over the island?

Correct on the one box. So 3 shade is too much? I will check the Wilmington fixture you suggested. Thanks
