Contemporary Chandeliers - When most people think of modern lighting they picture recessed spot and accent lights and maybe some track lighting. If they do not consider a hanging lamp or two the modern decorator may feel as if they moved into an art gallery where all the lighting is bright but far away. A chandelier in the entryway and another over the dining area can bring rich lighting down to people-level and can highlight modern style. Chrome starburst designs and cylindrical designs are both sleek modern chandelier options.
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.
They have been in use since medieval times i.e. since the sixteenth century and are believed to have originated from European countries. In ancient days crystals glasses and ceramics were used to make chandeliers of different sizes and shapes. Chandeliers generally have metal branches which fit the light holders. The metal branches are highly decorated with art work and stylish designs. The traditional chandeliers have flower leaf and creeper designs on the metal branches. But modern chandeliers have classy and trendy art work. The classification of chandeliers is based on the materials that are used to make them. Most of the chandeliers are white in colour because the lighting in chandeliers is by refraction of light through the crystals and glasses used but there are also black chandeliers which are pretty popular because they portray an exotic look. The various types of chandeliers have been discussed below.
To help determine your style take pictures of your rooms and pictures of your favorite pieces in that room. Now go to a lighting gallery or two with pictures in hand. Check out the lighting styles available and pick a few that seem to fit in with your pictures. Now take pictures of those chandeliers and other hanging lights and take them home.
