Antique chandeliers are becoming increasingly popular in the home these days, especially with new décor styles that include old and new being mixed in wonderful ways. Higher ceilings and different styled homes have made the chandelier the ideal piece for any room, especially since they do not make the room feel cluttered. Traditionally, antique chandeliers would welcome your arrival at the foyer of a (very affluent) home or was found hanging low to captivate you in a dining room. These days, chandeliers are found in just about any setting from the upper class mansion to the normal suburban home, to the traditional home.
It is now possible to buy a special detergent to clean crystal chandeliers. The detergent need only be sprayed on the chandelier and all dirt will disappear and will drain away onto a mat placed beneath the chandelier. The work, which would otherwise take hours, is finished in a few minutes. A chandelier can be an ideal option for lighting in your home. Not just for foyers and formal dining areas, but chandeliers can also be used to provide lighting in kitchens, bedrooms, as well as the childrens room. But before you go out and look for that perfect chandelier, here are some things that you need to consider.
Antler chandeliers allow you to bring the hunting lodge home with you. A bentbranch chandelier would go well if you have even one bentbranch chair. Wood beam chandeliers with metal brackets may make you think of medieval castles, but current wood styles offer tailored designs as well as roughhewn designs. Tiffany Chandeliers, this style encompasses how many people currently decorate. And there are a bevy of chandelier designs that can fit in an tiffanyinspired décor. From chandeliers that use colored glass to freeform design, hanging lighting options abound.
These factors brought massive changes to chandelier design throughout the ages. Chandeliers have always been associated with power and wealth, and subsequently through the ages many monarchs have owned chandeliers both because of the immense glamour they bring to their surroundings, but also because they were seen as a symbol of high class status and demonstrated their wealth. Although a genuine chandelier was not to be created until the 12th century, during the 8th century hanging lamps became more decorative and artistic, a shadow of the extravagance and beauty that would one day be associated with chandeliers.
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.
