After re-measuring the ceiling height in our foyer, I decided a flush-mount would be our safest bet, even if we can have the fixture centered (I had hoped to use a semi-flush if the fixture is centered, since door clearance would no longer be an issue). I just don't want my tall friends to have to duck when they come in our house!

And, although I was originally thinking of using a lion knocker, we ultimately chose a simpler design. I love the scale and weight of this ring knocker from Restoration Hardware - and the price was hard to beat at $35!
