The idea for this post came from a reader question. I don’t get many questions that include a photo. I really try to give lots of information for photos I DO get (which I love). What size chandelier looks good over a 90-inch LONG rectangular table?
The issue if you have a long table is that the formula that most people tell you to use doesn’t work. If you have a 90-inch table there are no chandeliers that will fit the formula. Go for one that is proportional to your table, the longer the better. The bigger the better with a large table.
Don’t overlook chandeliers labeled “island”. This is just a signal to tell you it is long, which is perfect for a long table. As long as it can be hung at the correct height it will work over a table, too. You can see an example here where the “island” chandelier is hung both over a table and an island.

Should I Hang Two Chandeliers Over A Long Table?
I hate to say it depends, but it does. If you don’t like any of the rectangular options, look for two chandeliers or pendants instead. Just be sure they are spaced evenly over the table and that no fixture is closer than 12 inches from the end.
I love to get photos of rooms and tables if you want a second opinion, ask in the comments.
