How to balance really low dining chairs

I love the look of sleek, low-back dining room chairs.  You know, the ones that barely kiss the table top.  Without any height around the table, though, a room needs some balance.  I love the way these spaces fill the void with overscale light fixtures and/or big, big art.

A more traditional take, with wood captains chairs and an overscale lantern:

If you can't go for a large-scale pendant, curtains can help, or flowers, too. It's all about the volume of space and filling the void from table top to ceiling.

What do you think: would you go low?
