If you're thinking of hanging a pendant lamp, we recommend trying one over the dining table. It's a great way to anchor your space and, if you add a dimmer, it will provide the romantic light you need for a dinner party. We searched the Apartment Therapy archives for good examples of dining tables paired with beautiful hanging lamps...

  1. Arthur's lamp is the Random Light by Bertjan Pot, hanging over the Lance Console Extension Table.
  2. Richard's isn't exactly an overhead lamp; that's a Normann Copenhagen arc lamp over his pedestal dining table.
  3. Tara and Ari's home combines a lamp by Louis Poulsen for Moser and a Monteverde Young dining table.
  4. Genevieve and Maxwell hung a Kartelly FLY lamp over their pedestal table.
  5. A globe light is the perfect fixture over Paula and Brian's wooden dining table.
  6. In Vicki and Richard's home, a saucer shade compliments the angular lines of the dining chairs and table base.
  7. Jon and Ro's pendant is the Kina lamp by New Zealand designer David Trubridge. It hangs over a white turned-leg table.
  8. Silver pendant lamps look beautiful over a Parsons-style white dining table in Nataniël's home.
  9. Jacob and Laurie's beautiful table was custom-made by Joshua Cooper, and the large drum shade is from
  10. In Amy's home, a Danish modern dining table goes well with an IKEA pendant lamp.
