Today's beautiful chandelier pieces are far removed from the ancient candle holders of the medieval castle. Such usefulness had a purpose in the age of knights and feudal vassals; today's chandeliers communicate an entire different message "art prestige and a symbol of wealth and status". Whether traditional or contemporary the chandelier light illuminates today's' more social and gregarious homeowner. Our European ancestors would never have imagined the framework of the chandelier would distinguish entire rooms separate floor plans and offer beauty all while providing the warmth and beauty of light.
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.
Not every chandelier requires the care or two-day polishing of the Pabst Theater chandelier. In fact some modern chandeliers acquire their elegance from their simplicity. Some chandeliers rely on crystals or faux crystals to help accentuate their shine but others use metal detailing with just a few bulbs providing light. There are even wooden chandeliers that mimic the first chandeliers that consisted of wooden cross beams fitted with candles.
