Pendant lighting should be hung about 32" to 40" above the kitchen table for nice lighting for a meal. If you are going to be using it as a reading light instead of a table light, you may want to lower the hang height for more direct lighting. Attaching a dimmer control is going to be ideal for a reading light, because the light directed straight down could become very bright, and now you have the flexibility to use the same light for many different tasks.
Many of the old chandeliers were made of iron but could be very heavy, which wasn't so much of a problem since houses were built with large central beams that could support the weight. The black iron look can also be imitated with bronze or brass that is weathered chemically, although it doesn't look exactly the same. A chandelier made of iron can be very contemporary looking, even though it has it's roots in antiquity. Another option is a chandelier made from black glass crystal. It won't refract the light like a typical crystal chandelier but it can add a sleek modern look to a room.
