Today`s chandelier light fixtures can be sleek, shaped like lanterns, feature cup-type light holders, or even combine two different light styles. They can be one tier or two, or even more. Some are flush with the ceiling, while others drop down several feet. They come in gold, silver, pink, black, brown, and just about every color you can think of.
Chandelier Lighting Fixtures. 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.
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.
