I like the light fixtures. . My first thought however, was how nice those chairs would look painted in a green to match the painting to add more color to your kitchen and paint the walls.

Check out schoolhouselectric.com if you like vintage looking fixtures. I have a few in my colonial home and I love the way they look.

The fixture over your dining table is small.

What is the diameter of the fixture?

The fixture should hang about 30-32"; from the top table to the bottom of the fixture. Is it?

hi salemdesigns. The two fixtures are old, I want them out. I'm looking for ideas on what I can replace them with. So something bigger? What style would best suit the kitchen?

There are some really glam drum shades out there, what ever light you choose you will know it when you see it. Happy hunting ;)

I'm thinking that you could get a chandelier over the dining table and a different light in the kitchen area. But that light should have the same finish as your kitchen knobs and pulls. So if they are brushed nickel, get a ceiling light that is brushed nickel too. Chandelier doesn't have to match. It's more of a statement piece.

You have to consider the ceiling height, the dining table height and the dining table length. The all over length of the actual light fixture (chain and body) needs to be addressed. 30" above the dining table is standard.

Oh gosh, brace yourself, it's a bit pricey (that last one), but if you follow the links under the pictures, they will lead you to the suppliers. Glad you like it.

I love that chandelier but do you think it would go with the table? The chairs are rattan.
