“One of the many reasons I love the dining area is because Kellan and I spent hours and hours building our sputnik chandelier months before we even found our home. Little did we know, our future home had the perfect place for it with ‘the octagon’ in the ceiling. Most of our friends have a more traditional style so they think our sputnik is “strange” to say the least, but we are so proud of our hard work and very pleased with how it turned out.”
Dining-Room Chandelier Go for a fixture one-half to three-quarters the width of the table; anything larger will cast shadows on faces. Hang the light 36 to 48 inches above the table. Choose the lower number for more intimacy, the higher one if you want to stand when toasting.
