Suggestions of wall lights that complement this ceiling light....

I have found this ceiling light which I really like for our new kitchen:
www.coxandcox.co.uk/homepage-products/alis-glass-pendant

Our house is 300+ yrs old so lots of light fittings that are 'obviously' for period homes, look a bit odd, as the periods they're designed for are Victorian or Georgian. That's why I like the one above as it's got a nod to the past but still quite clean and contemporary.

We would ideally have two of those above hanging above our kitchen table but we need two wall lights in the kitchen too and I can't find any that would look good with the ceiling light.

Any lighting experts out there who can steer me in the right direction?

Our ceilings are low, and the interior is gloomy so I am keen to keep any fixtures and fittings reasonably light and un-fussy.

Kitchen units will be similar to this shaker style: www.google.co.uk/search?q=ruskin+kitchen&espv=2&biw=2133&bih=1087&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwitzajb76zNAhUCfxoKHTSyDwgQ_AUIBygC&dpr=0.9#imgrc=4971BcdV_r8uMM%3A

But colour of the units will be as per the picture I have attempted to include in this post!

Any advice?

Sorry that link for the kitchen units was wrong - it's this one, or something very similar:

Lovely ceiling lamp. Hmm I think you will struggle to find that combo of wood and glass. I found one or two but they are very industrial feel so not really right.

There's this sort of thing from Jim Lawrence but metal not glass

How about something very plain like this: link which you could paint to match the walls?

Thanks minipie - I spotted exactly that one on the Jim Lawrence site earlier! Great minds and all that. I also saw this one that I liked the look of but I don't think it is an obvious complement to the ceiling light: www.jim-lawrence.co.uk/product/22566/fisher-wall-light/3126PI/plain-ivory

I have also thought that plan, painted wall lights could be the best way to go so thank you for pointing me in that direction too!

And a pendant (if you're not sold on the Cox&Cox one!)

Can I justify this bargain as a neutral option that I can paint over to be 'invisible' or is the shape of it a bit 80's:

Just love the fact it's £8.99 as opposed to the £40 Garden Trading option....

I ordered these yesterday - very similar to Origami's post.

I'll be honest lisba we had one just like that and replaced it because it looked so 90s to us!

there are a few cheaper options here but nothing for £8.99 sadly... Some good options in the £20-25 range though.

this one is £13 and looks much more modern to my eyes

Thanks minipie - you're right it was 90s more than 80s and that's not exactly the look I am going for!

Your £13 option looks like a goer though - thanks very much!
