When you suspend a chandelier above a table or a chair it enhances the look and feel of your beautiful and elegant furnishings.
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 people s heads or their natural line of sight. Chandeliers jumped from mere light fixtures high above peoples head to a craftsman s work of art. During the early 19th century chandeliers were made to look shine and display their light in a specific well crafted way. In fact there are old rot iron chandeliers that the lighting itself is part of the style. There were many chandeliers made back in the turn of the century to create a desired shadow displayed on the walls and the floor of the room that it was placed in. Legend has it that Edison created a chandelier made entirely of mirrors and it gave off so much light that it allowed the doctor to perform surgery on his Edison s mother. Where the story is true or not chandeliers have become more and more brilliant at time has worn on. As chandeliers have become more modern the way they show off their light has also become more modern.
When you re speaking of chandeliers the first thing you must speak about is chandler lighting. The lighting coming off of a chandelier is always beautifully brilliant and magnificent. There are many chandeliers that actually enhance that brilliance. Chandelier makers have always strove to create the most light output. Many makers have created whole pieces that are made of reflective silver so that they could increase the light output. Certain styles of chandelier have placed mirrors around or among the bulbs to increase the light going into the room. When you place mirrors on a chandelier not only do you increase output you also increase the ability to play with the lighting. With a small twist of a mirror the light is bounced to another part of the room or made to hit another mirror. With that thought in mind you also have the ability to cut and etch the mirrors to create a large range of visual effects from rainbows to circles to a split beam that dances on the wall. The way a chandelier lights up the room is a magnificent sight.
