Statement lighting can turn a space from ordinary to extraordinary at the flick of a switch. From minimalist industrial-influenced pieces to bold glass designs, a unique lighting design can add style and originality to any dining room. Here is some of the best dining room statement lighting inspiration.

This metallic pendant light is the perfect punctuation point in a contemporary dining room. From the marble backdrop to the gray accents dotted around the space, this dining room is all about setting trends and this striking gold pendant light is the ideal finishing touch.

This dramatic light design creates a dynamic focal point in your dining room in the form of a gold sputnik-style pendant created from criss-crossing matte gold rods. With this statement piece in your home, the dining room is sure to be a talking point.

Inspired by industrialism, this pair of lights successfully illuminate the beauty of the breakfast bar at the touch of a button. Modern but with a touch of retro style, these black pendant lights channel an inviting influence to create a sociable seating area.

Suspended over a simple and understated table is this glass and gold masterpiece. The glass lends an elegant and ethereal touch to the space, while the gold plays into the popular metallic trend to give it a contemporary finish. The design effortlessly filters light through it to enhance the bright and airy nature of the room.
