Lights should hang 30” to 32” from the slate bed to the bottom of the shade. If the table is not yet in place, this translates to 60” to 63” from the floor. The exact height is not a critical issue. Hang the light in the range where the chains fall naturally. You may have to adjust the height again once the table is installed in order to get adequate lighting depending on the size of your pool table.
There are many modern choices available and many designers are stepping out the box and not using the traditional hood style lighting. If you want to custom design your own luxury pendant, send us your specifications desired and we will have our craftsman assess.
