Chandelier lighting wakes up opens up and illuminates the entire room. A chandelier is a great way to bring attention to the ceiling draw the eye to a focal point or merely light a table. When you suspend a chandelier above a table or a chair it enhances the look and feel of your beautiful and elegant furnishings.
Chandelier lighting has been around for centuries even before the middle ages people used them. Back in those days chandeliers were a simple cross of wood with spikes that candles could be stuck to. In fact the name chandelier is French for candlestick. The chandeliers were attached to a pulley by rope so that they could be raised and lowered for lighting the candles. Chandeliers in public buildings sometimes have this same feature so that they can be lowered for cleaning and replacing burnt out bulbs. When metalwork became affordable for the merchant middle class chandeliers became made of brass or bronze. These multi armed chandeliers with candles (and later gaslights) are still in use today although we use electric lights today. Let s take a look at some of the chandeliers you have to choose from.
