Love Saarinen design! Great choice.
As for the size of your light, measure the width or diameter of your table. Then subtract 12" from that number. That's the maximum limit for the width or diameter of a hanging light.

Also, if you ever need to find the right size for any other light, check out our guide: http://www.lightsonline.com/how-to-choose-the-right-sized-fixture/

I recommend the 25" version, a 36" diameter saucer might overpower the 48" table top. Both sizes use a 150 watt maximum lamp.
