I hate hoods! alternatives?

Moving along on our house plans (went back to drawing board) and need to decide on wall or island cook top. Here's the problem - I hate hoods. (don't want down draft for other reasons). We are building an old fashioned house (push buttons light switches, inset cabinets) and I know I'll get grief from many, but I'm thinking about going with chrome plated in-wall (through wall) exhaust fans. I can get them higher than down draft so they'll be more effective and I think they'll fit in with the retro look - could turn out great - could turn out tacky. Am I crazy? Other options? Can anyone post unique hoods they've done? I don't want to dump $5k into a crazy cool hood.

Thanks!
