West Elm Eclipse Chandelier - Yes or No?

I am officially fed up by this year's extreme winter weather, enough already! At some point marginal utility started to decline, and the wintry scenery completely lost its appeal. Today here in Toronto we are taking in yet another 25-30 centimeters of heavy flaky snow. I don't think there's any more room for hubs to blow the snow to, not on both sides of our driveway where snow banks are taller than me, or into the front garden where all our shrubs are already buried and disappeared! Fortunately we both get to work from home, so at least I didn't have to go through all that commute mayhem. 

Enough whining about the weather. Now onto subjects that energize me and make me happy. If you remember the last piece left to do in my kitchen dining room is to change the chandelier. I was really digging these Murano art glass chandeliers, but they are either too small or too pricey. 

Our round dining table is 50" so I really don't want any fixture smaller than 24". The Eclipse chandelier in brass from West Elm is the right size at 36 inches in diameter. Price is also super good especially now at 20% off. But in brass finish though? I love brass but I am not sure if it works in this dining room? What do you think?

The same Eclipse chandelier in antique bronze...a bit plain-looking IMO. 

I also thought about Williams-Sonoma's Devon chandelier. I am pretty sure there are a lot of lookalikes out there.  

I really love the 1920s Odeon glass fringe chandelier from Restoration Hardware, love the size and the wedding cake shape, but I think it might be too much bling for an everyday casual dining room. 

So what do you think? Which one is your favourite for my kitchen dining room? Any other suggestions? West Elm Eclipse chandelier, yes or no?
