Kitchen island and table lighting

Please help me with lighting ideas, for my kitchen. 10' ceilings, carerra marble backsplash (subway tile plus flower mosaic insert), 5x7 island, and the fancy doors will have mirror rather than clear glass.
Thanks

Do you plan to keep the light fixture over the table? If so can you get a closeup of that? Not that the new one needs to be matchy matchy but should co-ordinate, at least in finish.
Also, you have just one fixture box over the island correct? Is there anything over the sink?

One fixture box over each. I need suggestions for over the table as well.
I am also going to add pot lights.

Hi! What a beautiful kitchen. I recommend installing three of these Benson pendants from RH over the island:

In fact, I just specified the same for one of my clients and it turned out beautifully:

And this chandelier from Z Gallerie would be gorgeous over your dining table:

I too like the benson pendants - but it would involve adding outlets which may or may not be budget friendly? If you were able to (3) mini-benson style might be a better fit for the 5x7 island?
Restoration 8" Mini-Pendant
Just a few options for single outlets - not sure what style appeals - contemporary? a bit of an industrial flair?

Again, the kitchen/dining fixtures do NOT have to match - just be cohesive in the space

Lanterns would be a classic look but again - would need an additional outlet to have two over the island.

Three small pendant hanging fixtures, as previously suggested, would work well along with under counter lighting a couple of can lights in front of the stove / over.

i would only use two over the island, i see you only have one power supply, but you cant get bars that hold two lights, or you can add and move the box. i also see something linear in over the dining but light ,

Do you think this light could work over the island? Is it too big at 45" tall and 35" wide?

way too big 4feet tall by 3 feet wide, is huge! i tell people to cut out cardboard or paper in the scale, and hang it by a string..it helps you get the feel for the space. think about the space you have between the counter and the ceiling.. its probably only about 6 feet!!

if you place that over the island, go linear with the dining fixture, as you dont want them both to be the same shape.

Flair Lighting's suggestion is a great choice. Compliment the pendants with a clear glass Murano chandelier over the table.
