Pendant lighting should be hung about 32" to 40" above the kitchen table for nice lighting for a meal. If you are going to be using it as a reading light instead of a table light, you may want to lower the hang height for more direct lighting. Attaching a dimmer control is going to be ideal for a reading light, because the light directed straight down could become very bright, and now you have the flexibility to use the same light for many different tasks.
If you're picturing pendant lights and you think they look dated, then you haven't seen some of the new designs. They don't all look like they're out of the 1970s. Ceiling lighting has come a long way since then, so hit a showroom or look through a large lighting site online. You can find these lights at a discount store, but if you invest in a quality product you'll have a much better selection and the light will remain looking new for much longer.
