The chandelier could have a sculptural design such as this one or could impress with its size or color.

Accent light fixture above tableView in gallery

The light fixture has to be chosen in accordance with the context it is placed in. So, for example, if the dining space is small and occupies a corner of a room, hanging a very large chandelier above the table would overwhelm the space. A less impressive but still eye-catching pendant lamp would be a much better option.

Tom dixon pendant lamps for dining tableView in gallery

A cluster of pendant lamps can be the perfect answer when you want to light up a dining room which has a large table.
