Laisne. Chandelier. January 31st , 2018.
For example, the Schonbek crystal chandeliers, or others dating back to the 16th century, are ageless and enduring. These fixtures have withstood the test of time. Since then, many other styles have evolved and are equally as impressive. Most modern fixture designs manage to offer both a nod to the past while fitting seamlessly into the decors and designs of presentday. One of my favorite topics is the chandelier because of its history as a method of lighting that was used before the sixteenth century.
Glass Chandeliers: The cheapest alternative for crystals is glass, hence, glass is used to make cheap chandeliers. Most of the modern ones have glass shades and domes. By and large, white or yellow coloured glasses are used to make glass ones. But, there are also multicoloured ones where stained glasses are used. Metal Chandeliers: These are also comparatively cheaper and can be categorised under cheap chandeliers. Metals like puffed iron, aluminium, steel, brass, and many more are used to make these metal ones.
The mixing of traditional and modern is a wonderful décor style, and a chandelier creates a charm to the lighting of your home that few modern lights can do. Chandeliers are even found in some very classy offices. The word chandelier originates from the French word chandelle which means candle. Its first appearance was in the 14th century where wood and candles were used. Galileo Galilea discovered the law of pendulum with a chandelier, by noticing that the swing of the chandelier took the same amount of time, every time, even if it was made shorter.
The articulation of the room significantly influences the placement of light fixtures. If the room is highly articulated then the use of one central chandelier is not suitable. Such a room should be fitted with wall lamps or another smaller chandelier. For halls with low ceilings it is convenient to use flush mounts. The colour of the walls, furniture, metal accessories, carpets and style in which the room has been decorated, as well as the tastes of the user, influence the choice of chandeliers.
To find the style that suits you, shop around. To help determine your style, take pictures of your rooms and pictures of your favorite pieces in that room. Now go to a lighting gallery or two with pictures in hand. Check out the lighting styles available and pick a few that seem to fit in with your pictures. Now take pictures of those chandeliers and other hanging lights and take them home. Review your pictures while keeping the size and the brightness of the chandelier in mind. You want a chandelier that will provide adequate lighting for its location, but will not blind your guests.
