If you are talking about the 3 pendant lights shown in the picture, those are similar to our Firefly Cord-Hung Ceiling Lights. It seem like a black cord, and the backplate is likely done in a Painted Aluminum to match the modern setting. You can see that light I described here:

I attached an image for you to see, and that fixture can come with or without a key.

This lighting idea is really 'smart'. Being able to achieve island lighting without electrical boxes in the ceiling. I think this could be done with a number of lights.
We had a similar idea for a client's kitchen that solved her situation.

There are many reasonable 'pre-made' lights available to give you this look and a handyman could attach the pipe.

Hi Anthony: I believe it's an oak floor, flat cut.

Oak & Broad
I would agree. Plain/Flat sawn is the common cut. Rift & Quartered will have a different grain pattern with rays and flakes. Here is a RQ floor shot to compare.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Andrew Snow Photography added this to My Houzz: Creative Open-Concept Home in Toronto
Adjacent to the dining area is the most visually striking space in the home: the sleek, black kitchen. The cabinets are crafted out of concrete formwork, resulting in an unusual brushed sheen. In keeping with the theme, the designers poured a gray concrete countertop that folds to run up a wall and onto the ceiling. Overhead, installed piping allows the wall-mounted pendant lights to hang centered over the island. This was a clever cost-saving solution, as installing lights in the fire-rated ceiling would have stretched the already tight budget.
Katya Popova added this to Hanging Lightbulbs Hold Sway Over Rooms
What an understated beauty! A very simple yet effective concept, this chandelier uses three light bulbs, some cord and a lot of creativity to add an industrial touch to an otherwise elegant room.See the rest of this home
