Updating a light fixture in your home can change the whole feeling of the room. But in the dining room, you can really set the mood for your whole dining experience.

If you're anything like me, by day you have a successful career, but come night, you're a total foodie.

Sure, fine dining experiences are always amazing, but what about creating special moments when you cook at home or even grab some takeout?

Every dining experience deserves to feel special and the right dining chandelier can help you achieve just that.

Plus, if you have an open concept or great room space, the light fixture you place above your dining table can jazz up more than just the eating area. A dining room chandelier can provide a focal point in a great room that helps tie all the spaces together.

There's a million (literally...) options out there to select from. But as an interior designer, my job isn't to have you go fend for yourself, but to whittle down the options to ones that would be absolutely stunning, saving you time and hassle.

For each chandelier, I'll highlight some features that I find unique. I find it helpful for my clients to hear (or read!) what I'm noticing so I'll share those thoughts with you.

Hint: If you feel like something you're reading resonates with you and the vibe you're looking for, that's usually a sign that's the one. 😍

Most of these have an organic modern style to them, which lends itself to coordinating with many different styles like contemporary modern, natural, bohemian, California casual and midcentury modern.

Top 17 Dining Chandeliers

1. Quintessentially Organic Modern

Okay, I'll be first to admit, I am all about instant gratification. I'm jumping right to my absolute favorite dining chandelier!

With its organic, molecular structure and its mix of new aged brass and smoke gray orbs, it's a stunning piece that would give a modern organic look to any dining room.

With it being almost 60 inches wide, it can also fill the space above a large dining table and have the correct scale. If I had a larger dining room, this is the exact chandelier I would get.

In a ranch home with only 8 ft. ceilings (which we have) it could overpower the space. However, if you have taller ceilings and an open plan...Wow! Can I come over and gawk at your new light fixture? I'll bring the wine. 😉

2. Bronze Perforated Shades

Details in design are what pull everything together beautifully, and make it truly unique. Which, in the land of a million light fixture options, this is no small feat.

In this chandelier, the shades are curved steel plates that have small perforations in them, letting the light shine through. I'd imagine the shadows cast from this effect are nothing less than spectacular.

Nothing says sexy mood lighting like some gorgeous light patterns cast across the table and ceiling.

It's finished in brass and a "bronze so deep as to be almost black." The contrast of linear and curves is a remarkable piece of art.

3. Geometric Artisan Rattan

While it may look simple, there in lies the beauty. This geometric rattan chandelier measures 30 inches across and is made by artisans weaving rattan in a traditional technique.

Handmade never means cheap, but it always means one-of-a-kind. "It is a marriage of artistry and high-quality construction" sure to be a focal and talking point in any dining room. It would look beautiful above a circular dining table or a rectangular wood table to blend natural fibers cohesively.

4. Chic and Stylish

Going from natural fibers in the last chandelier, we're switching to a contemporary, chic globe chandelier.

"Gunmetal-finished iron and brass-finished steel plating fuse for a cool, clustered look, with clear glass bulbs for light and lightness alike."

It would blend well with other black or gold finished fixtures in your home, with being just the right amount of eye-catchniness (is that a word?) that it won't draw too much attention from other items in the room.

Because it pairs so well with many other styles and items, I could see this being perfect in a great room, helping to tie everything together.

5. Dazzling Art

With twelve light bulbs that are encapsulated by glass orbs that extend off with brass and iron rods, this chandelier doubles as both a light fixture and art.

I love that this provides a little more height than just one row of lights, while it still being delicate and not heavy-looking.

With it's linear and crisp style, it would look exceptional paired with a soft, modern watercolor painting and a natural wood accents.

6. New-Age Mid-Century Modern

This beauty brings me back. No, I didn't grow up in the mid-century time period, but for some reason my elder millennial soul gets tugged on whenever I see something that is reminiscent of that era.

In this chandelier, branched gold rods stem out in a modern pattern, but the glass shades look antique.
