I agree you shouldn't get the light till you get the drapes and rug.

But no harm looking incase we find the one you love more than the rest you've seen so far. No need to buy it either just because we find it earlier than needed. All in good time. No rush

I'm sure Karen will keep us right on the 'when'.

stefanie, I am totally in favor of the 2nd one from the right if you do RH. It's not too gold. It's not too light and it's not too dark. Custom Belgian Sisal Double Weave Rug

Yes, I love the table lamps. They don't need to upstage the console. They really consolidate your entire palette in the room. Don't you think? Scale, shape, colors, shade....all perfect.

I like to use a metal art piece on the wall to draw eyes up to the big wall. Check out metal art.com

Under cabinet lighting has different color temperatures available that can alter your perception of the backsplash's colortone. Install warm or cool as may be appropriate to skew the color one way or the next. I'd recommend LED tape lighting as it's very DIY friendly to install and will last you decades before burning out.

Calligaris has similar styles to both table and chairs.

I believe both the chairs and table are by Baker. For the chandelier, you might want to search through Derring Hall product offerings.
