Contemporary Chandelier Lighting - 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.
Select a lighting fixture that blends with the mood and style of the other furnishings in the room such as the wall sconces furniture wallpaper and other accessories. If a large and ornate chandelier would stick out in the room consider putting something more muted so that the chandelier can be seen for its beauty rather than its girth.
Candle chandeliers made from metals such as brass brushed nickel and wrought iron are elegant pieces that resonates the rich history of the past. Antique chandeliers made from metals used to hold candles instead of electric bulbs and have been in existence since the 1400`s though they were reinvented in differing finishes throughout the centuries. Antique metal candle chandeliers are among the most expensive lighting fixtures today and may cost up to $60000 because of their rarity and origin making them collectible items. If you want to save energy and you have the right budget you can always opt for an antique metal candle chandelier.
Crystal Chandeliers: The most expensive and luxurious chandeliers are made of crystals. They are the most traditional form and manufacturers of these hardly use crystals. This is because a layman prefers cheap and modern chandeliers over the more extravagant ones.
The vintage and traditional type of chandeliers use candle lights or incandescent lights for illuminations and have yellow-tinted illumination while modern chandeliers have fluorescent or LED light bulbs and give bright white luminescence. Lighting chandeliers with candle lights is not practically possible on an everyday basis hence modern chandeliers have electric bulbs that are designed to look like candle lights.
