LAMPS ABOVE THE DINING TABLEHaving the perfect lamp above the dining table is a key part of creating the perfect atmosphere when you gather with family and guests. When picking a dining table lamp, you need to consider the size of the dining room, whether it has low or high ceilings, and how much furniture it houses. The bigger the room, the bigger the lamp can be. Most people have less space in the dining room—for example, it might only be big enough for a simple dining table and some chairs. Your choice of dining table lamp should also consider architecture and design generally, not to mention tastes and preferences. Dining tables are often used for purposes other than eating, doubling as a workspace and the table where the kids do their homework.
