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.
Chandelier lighting has been around for centuries, even before the middle ages people used them. Back in those days chandeliers were a simple cross of wood with spikes that candles could be stuck to. In fact the name chandelier is French for candlestick. The chandeliers were attached to a pulley by rope so that they could be raised and lowered for lighting the candles. Chandeliers in public buildings sometimes have this same feature, so that they can be lowered for cleaning and replacing burnt out bulbs. When metalwork became affordable for the merchant middle class, chandeliers became made of brass or bronze. These multi armed chandeliers with candles (and later gaslights) are still in use today, although we use electric lights today. Let's take a look at some of the chandeliers you have to choose from.
