Is this light too small for over a dining room table?
Hi Jeanne! To answer your question this fixture is quite small for over a dining table. It depends on the size of the room as well as the size of the dining table. This may be ideal for over a cafe table in a small breakfast nook, but for a standard size table, one of our Product Specialists suggests using the Flora 7 Light Chandelier - 103049 ( http://www.ylighting.com/hubbardton-forge-flora-103049-7-light-chandelier.html ).

Is this bright enough to use over a table? Can it be dimmed? What type of globe would give off the most light - as there are several choices. Is the "steel" choice comparable to "stainless steel" like appliances?
Hi there, and thanks for your interest in this design. Yes this fixture is bright enough to adequately light a dining area because it operates via three 60W halogens for a total of 180W, and it is in fact compatible with any standard incandescent wall dimmer. This makes it a good choice for both task and ambient lighting settings when you wouldn't need a full 180W. One glass shade color will not produce more light than another, however because white does reflect more light than darker colors, if you choose the "opal" white color, it may appear brighter than the other choices just because of its reflectivity. The "steel" metal finish is a nice shade of mid-tone silvery grey. You can actually view this color by checking out the swatch on image 14 out of 17 in the lineup on this product page. To discuss this fixture in greater depth, or to follow up with anything else, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we are more than happy to go over some options with you.
