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.

You can also use the square footage of your room to help estimate the size of chandelier that would be proportional. We’ve provided a quick reference chart below showing the appropriate width or diameter by square footage. Square footage is calculated by taking the length of the room multiplied by the width of the room. Using the example above, a 10’ x 18’ dining room would be 180 square feet, and a chandelier around 28” in diameter would be proportional.

SS: It’s interesting to work with scale and proportion and you can play with it depending on the look you are aiming to achieve. For a small room, I love a big fixture, like the Skygarden by Marcel Wanders. Something large-scale in a small room is whimsical and humorous, like seeing a mouse next to an elephant. I also love the Tropico Vertical Suspension Lamp fixture—its large scale is playful and unique. It evokes Polynesian or Asian traditional lighting, but in a contemporary way. Alternatively, using a small-scaled pendant lights can be interesting, like the Alva Pendant Light. A lack of presence can be very defining, too. I’d use a mercury-tip bulb for a vintage feeling, and hang a single one over an island, or a few over a counter.
