Use an Arc Floor Lamp
You don’t need a dining room chandelier for your dining area. An arc floor lamp can offer a proper overhead lighting just like any chandelier. Our suggestion? The Arco floor lamp by Flos is a classic and will give a trendy atmosphere to your space.
Customize the Lampshade

Just because a fixture has shades it doesn’t mean you can’t change it. So swap them out and make it your own.
Hang Your Pendant Lamp at the Correct Height

When hanging a pendant or a chandelier don’t forget to step back and consider your fixture at various lengths before settling on one.
Go for Less Traditional Fixtures
You don’t need to shop only chandeliers. What about paper lanterns or dining room sconces? You can also place a dining room table lamp above a sideboard. Imagination has no limits!
Use the Cord Wisely
Get creative with the cord when hanging a pendant lamp. You can loop it over a hook on the wall, the result will be dazzling and your guests won’t forget the look.
