While the rule of thumb for the right size chandelier for above a table is half the width of the table, why not break the rule, make a statement and go big - go extra big for that matter. These oversized chandeliers are magnificent... statement making absolutely. Stunning!
This stunning chandelier from Oly looks to be the right size at the view however, the diameter of the chandelier is likely larger than the width of the table. I just love this photo so I had to include it!
One of my pet peeves is chandeliers that are hung too high. That said, I understand at times higher is required given the chandelier and of course, personal preference. The rule of thumb for height is 32 – 36 inches above the table.
