I can't go that low. The track lighting pendants only have a 4.5 foot cord. Based on talk here and the length of the cord, I have one light that is going to hang from the highest point on the ceiling. So I'll use the full length of the cord on that one and go from them. I can always shorten, but I don't think I would be able to lengthen. But maybe. I'll have to get the fixtures and check it out.
But I had thought about that "seeing the bulb" thing. And these fixtures can take those sort of candle looking bulbs. So it won't be a standard bulb.
edit, I see you went with track lighting and based on those covers I think I saw those at Lowes as well. I really like you went with black. I was thinking going with white since ceiling is white, but I might reconsider that. I really like the look of yours.
