Murano glass stands for beauty quality craftsmanship and tradition. From as early as 1200's Murano glassmakers operated their furnaces to create beautiful objects from such trivial substances as sand sodium and certain basic minerals. The foundations of the craft came down to Venetians from ancient Romans that knew how to heat up silica (or fine sand) till it starts to melt add minerals for colors and shape the hot glass mass into intricate forms. But certainly not everyone who knew the theory of this process could create high quality glass objects.
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.
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.
What has caused this amazing shift in use and application of chandelier lighting? In a word - stress. Each of us having worked busy and hectic schedules sees their home and its ambiance as ironically the safe "castle" to retire unwind reconnect and recharge within. No portion of the home's experience can influence this desire to remove stress than in carefully planned and beautifully designed chandelier lighting. From gorgeous bathrooms to beautiful home offices from typical to contemporary the light illuminated from a chandelier creates its own beauty and in doing so impacts our mood and ability to handle the stress of 21st century western civilization.
