10 Dining Room Chandeliers for Every Design Style

They do more than just provide light; they also make serious design statements.

They come in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials, and I'm in love with them all. Whether they’re dripping in crystal with ornate details and tiers of elegance or boasting an out-of-the-box modern design, chandeliers just know how to tie a space together. These 10 dining room chandeliers are no exception.

I’ve put together a collection of my favorite dining spaces ranging from coastal to traditional that dazzle with opulent, over-the-top light fixtures. I imagine this is how the royal family dines.

Mid-Century Modern Dining Room From Sarah Sees Potential

As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential , this open plan dining room got a chic, mid-century modern makeover. Designer Sarah Richardson upcycled thrift store dining chairs by dipping the legs in chrome and reupholstering the seats. Keeping with the vintage theme, she installed a fun mid-century modern chandelier and two matching floating storage cabinets in a bright blue to match the owner's original artwork. A custom banquette and vintage wood dining table complete the look.
