Chandelier. Friday , January 26th , 2018 - 16:25:02 PM
One of the major appealing characteristics of todays chandeliers, are their versatility. A kitchen can be transformed into a highclass dining area with the addition of the right chandelier. A large bathroom can be given an air of elegance with the installation of a chandelier. Some homeowners will even use a chandelier in the master bedroom to give it that special feeling. Chandeliers are available in all kinds of styles, shapes and can be made from a variety of materials. Although the most common type of chandelier is made of crystal, faux candles and other types of lighting is also available.
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.
The way a chandelier lights up the room is a magnificent sight. The history of chandeliers is as varied as the styles and material that a chandelier is made out of. From the first time that someone realized how brilliantly lit a domicile was if you had multiple candles burning above peoples heads or their natural line of sight. Chandeliers jumped from mere light fixtures high above peoples head, to a craftsmans work of art. During the early 19th century, chandeliers were made to look, shine, and display their light in a specific well crafted way.
