Today's more modern chandelier patterns and designs are a far cry from the chandelier's humble beginnings centuries ago but still pay homage to the elegance of their old-world relatives. While these lighting fixtures before were only simple and quaint wooden structures designed with a multitude of candles attached today's more contemporary patterns have evolved into more elaborate but still practical decorative pieces of art. There are also unique modern lighting fixtures that are perfect for the foyer and entrances to a home as well as in the dining room.
A home's front porch or front steps may also feature a hanging or pendant chandelier and these can also be made to work in any room however especially when the design is coupled with a ceiling fan. Modern-day pendant chandeliers are a bit different from the standard hanging chandeliers of old because they usually use fewer bulbs per chandelier. It's quite uncommon to find pendants that use a single bulb as their source of light although as many as three or four bulbs can be seen depending on the design. It's important to note too that multiple pendants are sometimes combined into one design to create a multi-level effect with pendants hanging at slightly different heights.
This month the 2500 pound chandelier that consists of 33000 crystals was lowered from the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee for its annual cleaning. The chandelier is the centerpiece of the theatre and visitors are often more captivated by it than by whatever performance is going on at the theater. According to Sandra Wickler one of the volunteers cleaning the chandelier who also serves as an usher "It's amazing. When I usher here the people who come in who have been here just go 'wow' and they're snapping [cameras] away and I'm like 'yes!'" Several volunteers are helping to clean the chandelier by polishing each of the 33000 crystals by hand. Those volunteering for the two-day cleaning project each year say that they enjoy making the chandelier shine as it was intended to.
