Chandelier. Wednesday , January 31st , 2018 - 13:55:31 PM
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.
Crystals in chandeliers were originally used to help reflect and spread the light. Crystal glass was found to be the best material for this purpose. Into the 19th century, roped pendants and hanging drops were added to chandelier designs. With the discovery and use of electricity, the antique chandelier has of course moved with the times, and now incorporates electric or gas lighting. Candlelit chandeliers are still available, however, and can add some wonderful unique elegance and personality in the lighting of your home.
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.
