Choose a chandelier that can hang at the correct height when a table will be centered beneath it. Consider both the chandelier and the room you`re lighting: if the chandelier has bare bulbs for example it will need to be hung high enough to avoid glare. At the same time if you have an 8-foot ceiling you`ll want to avoid hanging a chandelier too high unless you want it to look sawed off and stunted.

Murano glass chandeliers are contemporary chandelier fixtures that originated from Murano Italy which is regarded as the glass blowing capital of the world. These light fixtures denote a specific chandelier design that is often curvy and tubular in form exclusively made from blown Murano glass. Because glass can be molded into several shapes Murano chandeliers are often utilized with floral motifs and other complex figures and usually comes in pastel hues. The use of different colors in these chandeliers allows them to emit unique and creative light effects.
Black Chandelier Lighting - Many of the old chandeliers were made of iron but could be very heavy which wasn`t so much of a problem since houses were built with large central beams that could support the weight. The black iron look can also be imitated with bronze or brass that is weathered chemically although it doesn`t look exactly the same. A chandelier made of iron can be very contemporary looking even though it has it`s roots in antiquity. Another option is a chandelier made from black glass crystal. It won`t refract the light like a typical crystal chandelier but it can add a sleek modern look to a room.
