Working With a Large Chandelier?

Good Questions

Q: I just bought an apartment and will be moving in next month. The living room/dining room is almost square and there's a beautiful antique large crystal chandelier in the center of the room. While I don't want to get rid of the chandelier because it's so pretty, I worry that having a central focal point in the room will make it harder to create a separate feel between the dining room side and the living room side. Any design suggestions?
