I am in the process of making the same type of decision...have the decorative moldings, problems with old electrical boxes ect.... I also have a couple that still have pull cords. I like the price and look of the Schoolhouse electric ones, but do worry that sticking to all vintage is a little boring. I found some great inspiration for mixing modern fixtures with old plaster detail at http://47parkav.blogspot.com/.

This looks to me like a floor cloth made with heavy weight canvas. There are several tutorials you can find on line for making floor cloths - Martha Stewart has a good one. Most art stores have the canvas and gesso, which you use to prime the canvas and make it sturdy. I made one for a country/informal dining room(much larger than the MS version) and 4 years later it looks great, perhaps even better with wear. It cleans up great with mild soap and water.
