Chandeliers aren't just for traditional dining rooms: A floral chandelier complements the ghost dining chairs and gloss brown table. A mirrored white buffet table provides a spot for decorative accents, like vases and candles.
Simple and effective, a chandelier over the table is a classic way to light a dining room. Improve this lighting feature by installing a dimmer to enhance the mood of your meals.
Track lighting can often be the best option to highlight specific parts of a room, like a favorite piece of art. In this modern dining room, the wavy track lighting becomes a focal point along with the graphic artwork and towering centerpiece.
Two contemporary pendant lights serve double-duty as art. Romantic upholstered chairs surround a Versace dining table. Tangerine-hued draperies open to allow natural light to bounce off the hand-carved fireplace.
Cove lighting, installed in a ledge high on the wall, adds a glamorous touch to this elegant dining room. A sparkling crystal chandelier and coordinating wall sconces cast ambient light throughout the room. Design by Lina Khatib
Layers of Light
Recessed and pendant light and table lamps provide plenty of lighting in this open-concept dining room. The windows surrounding this gorgeous dining room make the space feel as if it's floating in the night sky. The open timber ceiling structure adds to the woodsy, natural vibe.
Glass pendant lights provide ambient lighting and put the spotlight on this dining room's beautiful Carrera marble table. The custom-designed wall of shelving is equipped with brilliant accent lights, making it the focal point of the room.
You can enhance your dining room's design style with the right wall sconces. In this French Country dining room, delicate candle-like sconces flank a charming fireplace.
