Pendant lights

Before I start looking for fixtures, I thought others might have run into this situation.
To make things easy, I would like to hang 2 pendant lights utilizing the existing 6" can light openings (there are only two cans in a U-shaped kitchen).

Ideally the pendant/light bar would have 3 or 4 bulbs and have a canopy to cover the can light hole. The other side would have a matching false canopy.

Basically I would like to use the cans for a mounting and power source rather than rip them out. I haven't seen anything like that.

Yup they make that.. As long as the fixture weighs less than 100lbs (they are rated for 50lbs each,
assuming you want it to straddle both existing cans).

Over the sink peninsula the single can is on the left. Over the opposite bar peninsula the can is to the right.
It looks like the 2nd ring could be mounted to ceiling only, looking the same as can side?

I haven't run into this and would like the cleanest look.
