The bottom of this light is 35" above the table. If your fixture is a large drum pendant similar to this I would recommend the higher height, but a more transparent fixture could go at the lower height. Hope that helps!

Thank you Rock Paper Hammer (love the name by the way!). I went with the 36" and I think it's fine. ;-)

The brick was original to the house, circa 1920s.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

AFTER: The fireplace had been covered with plaster. Fisher saw a peek of brick during the demolition and worked the brick wall into the design.Now a wider entrance combines the dining room and kitchen. Light gray paint highlights a built-in from the 1920s remodel. The original kitchen had two staircases for the maid to access the rest of the house: One staircase to the basement at the far end of the kitchen had limited width, and one staircase to the upstairs was right behind the fireplace. Fisher and her team linked them, building a single staircase behind the fireplace so they could expand the kitchen and concentrate traffic flow. Dining table, chairs: vintage; dining room pendant: Drum Pendant, West Elm
