If you want to give your interiors refinement and character, classic lighting fixtures like antique chandeliers are sure to provide stylish elegance. The reason for this is that these classical styles of chandeliers have been proven to match all types of motifs and interiors. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that these light fixtures are popular among all homeowners, regardless of whether one is royalty or just an average income homeowner.
For centuries to come, even as fashions changed and foreign craftsmen learned how to create good quality glass, Murano chandelier remained the most desired and prestigious type of chandelier around the world. Thus, it is no surprise that even today, when every type of material, color, and style is available, traditional and gorgeous Venetian chandeliers still decorate the most prestigious hotels, restaurants, theaters, and homes. When there is such abundance of products for every budget and taste on the market, people that want to stand out look for something artistic and one-of-a-kind. Thus, people buy Murano chandeliers not only because of their opulent hand-made beauty, but also because of the rich history that surrounds them and the special ambiance that such chandelier creates, evoking magical images of Venetian palazzos, canals, and gondolas.
In fact, glassmakers studied for years learning often from their fathers and older masters to be able to mix the ingredients just right at a time when the laws of chemistry were not even formulated, time the process well, work skillfully with primitive instruments, and create precise shapes that were beautiful and desirable but useful as well. The objects created by Murano glass masters in the early years of the craft were mostly utilitarian yet very expensive and affordable only to successful merchants and nobility. Along with fine tableware and mirrors, one of the most demanded products was an oil lamp. People understood very early that surrounding a source of light with glass allows the light to disperse in the optimal manner and creates a wonderful warm ambiance while allowing for the most effective use of light.
Contemporary chandeliers can be made of numerous different metal finishes, such as bronze, brass, nickel, chrome, and even silver.
