Need advice with 2-Story Light Fixtures - chain or downrods?

last month

I am looking to replace the light fixtures in our 2-story foyer and 2-story dining room. Both fixtures I'm looking at (see pics) come with the following: 1 foot of chain + (2) 8-inch downrods + (2) 12-inch downrodsd + (2) 16-inch downrods. Are these supposed to all be connected together so it is basically 6 feet of downrods and only 1 foot of chain? Does the chain go at the top or bottom? I have never seen a downrod that length before so I have no idea what it will look like. There is also an option to purchase add'l chains in 1 foot increments - should I go that route and use all chain instead?
