Please help: Chandelier over a dining room table
I have an oval dining room table that measures 48x60. The room that it occupies is a dining room/kitchen combo which is really not too big. I recently purchased a Hubbardton Forge dining chandelier (Trellis 10-3075) that measures 25.3 inches deep. I'm a bit worried that it might be too small for the table. I've read that you take 1/2 the measurement of the width of the table and that should be the width of your fixture. (OK, that works for me... 24 inches.) But I've also read that you take the width of the table and subtract 12 and that should be the light's width. (That doesn't work at all... 36 inches.) I am concerned about these two schools of thought. Which one should be followed? I can return my chandelier. Please let me know what do you think.
