Can I have a single pendant light over the kitchen island?

last month

We are redesigning our kitchen. It's on the smaller side but we'll have an L-shaped configuration with room for a small 5-foot island. We will have pot lights in the ceiling for extra lighting but would also like to add some directional pendant lighting over the island. I have found a modern pendant light that I absolutely love but it's 16" in diameter, so two pendants is out of the question for such a small island. My question is, would it be odd to have just one pendant light over the island? I've seen it done before but with an oversized pendant. Wondering if 16" is okay for 5 feet. Would love some expert advice on this dilemma. Image of the light is attached.
