For centuries chandeliers have been a sign of wealth class and elegance. Initially relegated only to cathedrals castles and homes of the very wealthy chandeliers were fairly impractical as they held candles that burned out frequently and had to be replaced by servants. With the advent of electric lighting however chandeliers quickly became a way not just to display glamour and class but to effectively light a room as well.
If you think you might prefer a real candle chandelier (and who could blame you?) you will face a wide selection of outstanding designs to suit any taste. Arguably the most beautiful of all candle chandeliers are those made of glass or crystal. However these require a great deal of maintenance and attention to ensure that the candles do not tarnish the beauty of the piece. (It should be noted here that candle wax should be cleaned from any holder regardless of type). Another consideration of these elegant chandeliers is that they tend to be more expensive than those made of metals (bronze wrought iron etc.) but they certainly add an amazing effect to any room in your home.
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.
Without doubt chandeliers have evolved since their medieval castle days. Anyone looking to combine lighting with timeless elegance can benefit from the wonderful advantages of chandelier lighting. Several online sources provide the consumer with the opportunity to browse multiple styles of chandelier lighting all from the comfort of home. Chic chandeliers in both elaborate and simple styles are available from all parts of the world.
