You can also choose a chandelier with shades as this will help to maximize the light filtering down but reduce the glare at the same time. Thus, once you have decided on what type of lighting effect you wish to achieve, you can select a chandelier accordingly. Style of the chandelier: As it is most likely going to be the center of attention in any room, it is essential that you choose a chandelier that has a look and style which is in keeping with the rest of your décor. You do not want to draw attention to your chandelier for all the wrong reasons after all.
The production and development of chandeliers slowed down until the 19th century, when multiple revivals began all across Europe. During the Second Empire in France, they created historicizing styles. By the end of the 19th century, gas lighting was becoming increasingly available, and this marked a change in the technological style of chandeliers. In the modern era, chandeliers have been made in a collection of styles, from large decorative chandeliers used in highclass restaurants to small colourful ones especially for children.
Black Chandeliers: These are by and large manufactured in China and Czech Republic. They are preferred by people because of the contrast they exhibit with the white lights. They are made of black crystals, glasses and wrought iron and go well with vintage style of settings and interior decorations. The earliest genuine chandelier known was created in 1167 A.D for Frederick I, the King of Germany and the Holy Roman Empire. During the eight and a half centuries since then, the history of the chandelier spans many exciting and rapid changes in styles and fashion, but also saw many technological changes as the industrial world revolutionised, bringing with it the invention of candles and wicks, oil fuels, and most importantly, the invention of the electric light bulb.
Light requirement is a feature of a user which is hard to predict. For example, if a sanitary standard says that the minimum light intensity recommended for a stay in a room is 200lx, there are always people who will require 500lx or more. What is more, the older a user is, the higher his light requirement is. Various demands on the intensity of light can me met in various ways. A chandelier with a higher number of bulbs whose light intensity we want to decrease can serve as an example. Such a decrease in the light intensity can be reached by: installing a double switch (the chandelier will be only partially lit), installing a dimmer (the light intensity of all lit bulbs will be gradually regulated), exchanging current bulbs for ones with a lower power.
The earliest chandeliers were very basic, almost primitive devices that involved two pieces of wood connected together to form a cross. A spike was inserted at each end to hold the candles and a rope or chain was connected to the crosspiece and then suspended from the ceiling. As a former antique dealer, Ive found that nearly all of the earliest chandeliers were destroyed and very few authentic examples remain in existence today. The chandelier found its resurgence in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and was found in the great palaces of Europe and America.
