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.
Always remember when buying decorative table lamps that the lamp bases and the shades are proportional. A lamp that fits the furniture of the house is the best, and make sure that when seated you don't see the light bulb by setting the lamp shade at eye level. Make sure that the lamp is proportional to the table that it is placed on. For a short table a taller table lamp is required thus choosing a short table lamp for a tall table.
