Matching lighting fixtures in open concept kitchen/dining area?

Hi there,
this is my first post! I really need some advice on this... We've just redone an older home here in Toronto and I'd love some opinions on matching lighting fixtures in an open concept kitching and dining area. 
I'd like to hang the smaller pendants above the kitchen island and then hang the one with the chain above the dining table (which is directly accross from the island). The metals are slightly different and I've been told that I should either match the fixtures (ie use the same metal/company) or do something totally different. Do you think this combo will clash if they are opposite each other?
