ISLAND & BILLIARD CHANDELIERSThe chandelier is a kitchen essential! Whether you are enjoying familiar Sunday brunches, holiday gatherings while cooking, or simple weeknight dinners, a rectangular or oval chandelier over the kitchen island or long dining table spreads light perfectly for prepping food or romantic dining. Whether organic vines, rustic wood and iron, modern crystal, industrial, French country, traditional, or trendy is your thing, our eclectic collection of island chandeliers will warm the heart of your family’s home or provide the best lighting for your game room pool table, billiard table, bridge table or poker table.
The best kitchen island, pool table or billiard chandeliers have enough lights to illuminate the full island or table. Generally the billiard chandelier should span approximately ½ the length of the game table (pool tables range in length from 7' to 9') and be hung so the bottoms of the shades are 36"-42" above the table. Kitchen island chandeliers should be 2/3 length of the island and hung so the bottoms of the shades are 28" from the counter surface. Another option is to use 3 pendants or our pendant adapter with 3 pendants over your game table or island, hung so the bottom of the shades are 22" from the counter surface.
