Chandeliers date all the way back to the medieval times. The only people to have chandeliers during this time were the wealthy and the lights could be moved from room to room. If the lighting was needed in a different room it was picked up and carried. The chandelier was then set down and relit if any of the candles had gone out.
Many contemporary chandeliers don t have the branched arms we think of in a classic lighting chandelier. Instead they have a central support holding up a central lighted area. This is typical of an art deco or craftsman style chandelier. Modern chandelier lighting with a central support are typically called pendant chandeliers. They can come in all sizes and shapes from mini chandeliers to streamlined steel.
