If you're looking for a chandelier lighting today you have many options from antique looking to contemporary pendant chandeliers. You can even find chandelier shades to change the look of your already existing chandelier. Many people prefer this type as the light is not as harsh as the typical chandelier that has exposed bulbs. If you have an already existing light fixture, installing a new chandelier can be as easy as turning off the power, removing the old fixture and connecting the color coded wire to your new fixture. If you don't feel comfortable doing it, it's an easy and quick job for an electrician. Take a look at what's out there, there's sure to be something that suits your style.
Tiffany Chandeliers - This style encompasses how many people currently decorate. And there are a bevy of chandelier designs that can fit in an tiffany-inspired décor. From chandeliers that use colored glass to free-form design, hanging lighting options abound. To find the style that suits you, shop around.
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.
