Need ideas for replacement chandelier over kitchen table
rpl814
February 26, 2013 in Design Dilemma
The silver fixture we put up gives off about as much light as a night light. I love how it looks, but it has to go. Attached are pictures of the kitchen. The 8 glass bloc chandelier matches the other kitchen lighting (similar to the pendants and the same as over the sink). Is that too matchy matchy? It was my first choice, but was back ordered. Now I'm not sure. I also have a crystal chandelier in my entrance, powder room and dining room. Would a cool crystal chandelier be crystal overkill??

Sam, I was thinking about that last night. Same chairs too! I like that one.

CRYSTAL WOULD BE "OVERKILL" AS YOU STATED. LOOK AT HORCHOW DAUPHINE PENDANT OR OTHER DRUM FIXTURES

Do you want a chandelier or a pendant fixture?
I'd do either the Artichoke Pendant or the Graffitti by Corbett

I love the idea of adding another material like wood to connect with your front door and floors. Too much grey and metal may get a bit cold after awhile although I really do like your kitchen. It came out great -congrats! Plus, you have already done metallic, crystal, etc. I also like the sculptural quality of the artichoke pendant above. Let me see if I can find something online....

I would just caution that your table is smaller in scale, you do not want to overwhelm it with a large chandelier- but I like the shape of the drum light, just a different one. The wood one above is gorgeous!

it's 72x42, the sergei one is 39.5"....thanks for pointing that out. The wood ones are nice, I just have this thing about wood- I don't know why, but I just don't like it. Probably from seeing Blair Witch Project while at a sleepaway camp in the woods...that could do it. :) I actually wanted to stain my door black, but giving myself time to make sure that's what I really want to do.

lol...we all have our dislikes so totally get that. I am that way with oak wood. The fun part about design, so many ideas and so many choices.

So no one thinks I should go with my original choice? Stick with the same glass cubes as the pendants and above the sink? 2 choices.

I read this and thought of focusing towards the darker idea of black wrought iron to bring out the dark hardware, and other black accents, and your future door. Here are a few things to ponder

first a white barrel with crystals and dark iron: http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Indoor-5-light-Antique-Bronze-White-Shade-Flush-Mount-Chandelier/5152198/product.html

second a dark with crystals pendant, that would be easier to switch out http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Cartier-1-light-Min-Pendant-in-Weathered-Bronze/6813909/product.html

I just bought a 42" by 6'6" mirror I'm going to lean against the back wall. Not sure yet what I'll put along the left side yet.

I like the Sputnik too, but some look cool (like the one above but too big) and some look so stumpy.

I love the matchy matchy lights you posted. They are awesome and will look fantastic, in my non-decorator opinion.

I like the rectangular shaped chandelier. Love if actually. I might even steal your idea.

HI -- I love your space and furniture .I think the dining chandelier should make it's own statement . Have a look at Restoration Hardware , they have great fixtures . And i think you can never go wrong with a classic Nelson light fixture. Which would be fitting because I see you have mid century style front doors !

She's talking about the dining room table fixture, not changing the pendants. She may want to simply match the existing pendants... Look about 5 comments above mine for the matching chandelier.

Thanks for clarifying. It's for over the kitchen table- the white parsons table in the second picture. It's basically behind the stools, I think another picture shows it. I need one fixture.

Hi there, your chairs are quite leggy, so would not want to see you add the light you show, it would look very busy. A dark shade would not show up very well because of the wall colour. I like this chandelier for the satin white glass, sheer shade and its dark banding. I also like the way it references the chairs with the Satin Nickel. Here's the link, it's on sale too!

Sorry 'bout that. Hmm, well I think the Sputnik idea that others suggested is a good one, or adding something old and classic might be a cool surprise in the modern space, too. Or a cool bubble light fixture, maybe?

I like your original choice. probably would suggest the square/rectangular one. it is a good scale, suits your table shape & won't compete with your drop pendants at island. put it on a dimmer, so can turn up or down.
your overall vibe is well done & you've made good choices in your finishes. Very smart look!

Here's the Restoration Hardware sputnik ligtht - unfortunately pricier than the other one. It comes in polished nickel. It's a bit narrower than the other one and has the spread out look which I personally prefer over a rectangular table over the rounder ones. http://www.restorationhardware.com/catalog/product/product.jsp?productId=prod2111786&categoryId=search

Here is a link for the pendants. http://www.eurostylelighting.com/euu5886.htm
We have them on a dimmer and also have recessed lights. They are only 40w each but they do give off decent light. We love them.

I think that your original choice will fit in perfectly fine. You will love it, it ties in with the rest of your lighting and I don't find cohesiveness over kill ;) Your kitchen is beautiful!
