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 vintage and traditional type of chandeliers use candle lights or incandescent lights for illuminations and have yellowtinted illumination, while modern chandeliers have fluorescent or LED light bulbs and give bright white luminescence. Lighting chandeliers with candle lights is not practically possible on an everyday basis, hence, modern chandeliers have electric bulbs that are designed to look like candle lights. They have been in use since medieval times, i.e., since the sixteenth century, and are believed to have originated from European countries.
One of the best ways to find the style and size chandelier that will best complement your décor, is to go online and look at whats available. Keep in mind that the chandelier usually draws the immediate attention of a visitor so it should fit the basic décor of your home. Proper sizing is critical. A chandelier that is too large for the space it occupies will overpower the room and may even lend a sense of claustrophobia to the visitor. On the other hand, a chandelier that is too small for the room just looks out of place regardless of its style.
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.
Contemporary Chandeliers, when most people think of modern lighting, they picture recessed spot and accent lights and maybe some track lighting. If they do not consider a hanging lamp or two, the modern decorator may feel as if they moved into an art gallery where all the lighting is bright but far away. A chandelier in the entryway and another over the dining area can bring rich lighting down to peoplelevel and can highlight modern style. Chrome starburst designs and cylindrical designs are both sleek, modern chandelier options.
