Believe it or not, the “Holidays” are right around the corner. That means Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year (and more) which call for table adornments and party decorations galore! What do all of these festivities have in common? A gorgeous table setting. And, what is the most beautiful part of a table setting? A crystal chandelier, of course.
Yes, your crystal chandelier should be considered part of your table setting. It should not be so high off the table that it is considered a ceiling light instead of an integral part of your dining experience.
We recommend 28” and 34” between the top of your table to the lowest point of your chandelier. This is plenty of space for laughing and sharing across the table. Everyone’s eyes can meet, but they are also aware of the elegant glitter just a tad bit over their sight line.
As you start thinking about your family dinners and parties, take a good look at your chandelier height and keep in mind how things look from the seated perspective. After all, that’s how you spend most of your time in the dining room.
