these aren't too bad. big pieces of brown wood suspended from the ceiling? what will that really look like? i don't my eye drawn to a fan unless the fan is spectacular and i've yet to see one that is.
maybe move the brass chandelier from the dining area to the living area and put something else over table. the advantage to keeping the chandelier where it is and lowering it is that it a gorgeous chandelier; the advantage to moving it is the same.
maybe give up on ceiling fans entirely.
