Be sure that the chandelier is centered over the table and not in the middle of the room. If you have a hutch or sideboard against one wall, as most people do, your table will likely be placed slightly off center in the room, and everything will look off-kilter if the chandelier hangs exactly dead center.

Sara Story: A dining room needs to have atmosphere and the perfect fixture and light output help achieve this goal. The light should sparkle and flatter. Usually a dining room is a smaller space with less going on than, say, a living room—fewer furnishings, often just a dining table and chairs. So a light fixture can be a central feature, like a beautiful piece of jewelry that’s also functional. A table has to be durable, chairs have to be comfortable, but a light fixture can be more adventurous because no one’s touching it, no one’s spilling food on it. It’s the perfect opportunity to have a sculptural element that creates a mood.

SS: It all depends on the architecture and design of the space, as well as the style and form of the table. I don’t follow a rule. However, I like linear fixtures for rectangular tables, such as the Agnes Chandelier or Woody Endless Pendant by Roll and Hill. They are so elegant and crisp, and the proportions are perfect. I usually try to find something that’s about a third the length of the table.

SS: I prefer to have the light fixture centered on the table. But if you want to play with that a bit you can pick something that has multiple light sources, clustered or in a linear format, like in the Bocci 21.36 Rectangle Chandelier or the Spillray 10 Light Chandelier.

“If you have a beautiful old Georgian-style home and throw a modern chandelier in there, it will feel fresh and exciting,” says Toronto-based designer Karl Lohnes, “but in five years you might want to change it.” Unless you’re open to replacing your chandelier every time you redecorate, select one that matches your home’s era and architecture. Design by Troy Beasley.

SS: There are so many variables. I recently had a client with a traditional and dark dining room, so I selected the Bocci 28.19 Round Pendant Chandelier to add something white and light and contemporary. If the space was more informal I might have picked the Ilde Max—the red cords make it playful and fun. Another good choice for a traditional space is the Foscarini Wave Suspension Lamp. I love how it appears to be floating in space—it has a nice lightness and a tranquil feel. Sometimes if the architecture is bold you want the fixture to be simple, to keep attention on the molding or ceiling application. That’s what you see in a lot of old traditional European buildings — contemporary fixtures in old paneled rooms make the space current.

SS: Normally I wouldn’t do a flush mount in a dining room, but if a room is boxy and the ceiling is low, the Anemone Large Flush Mount would be great, especially with a lacquered ceiling. Table lamps are nice on consoles or sideboards in dining rooms, as are decorative sconces. I also recommend light sources at different levels. I love Roll and Hill’s Excel Table Lamp, and the Panthella Lamp would look fantastic in a traditional setting. The classic AJ Wall Light has a beautiful form and would add a great pop of color to any room.
