Black Chandeliers: These are by and large manufactured in China and Czech Republic. They are preferred by people because of the contrast they exhibit with the white lights. They are made of black crystals glasses and wrought iron and go well with vintage style of settings and interior decorations.
Accent Lighting: If you want to place your chandelier over something specific so as to illuminate that object or if you want it to provide you with accent lighting for specific areas then you should choose one with spotlights and down lights. A spotlight will help you to focus lighting on special works of art and help to bring about their beauty. With down lights you can provide accent lighting for tabletops and other specific areas.
They have been in use since medieval times i.e. since the sixteenth century and are believed to have originated from European countries. In ancient days crystals glasses and ceramics were used to make chandeliers of different sizes and shapes. Chandeliers generally have metal branches which fit the light holders. The metal branches are highly decorated with art work and stylish designs. The traditional chandeliers have flower leaf and creeper designs on the metal branches. But modern chandeliers have classy and trendy art work. The classification of chandeliers is based on the materials that are used to make them. Most of the chandeliers are white in colour because the lighting in chandeliers is by refraction of light through the crystals and glasses used but there are also black chandeliers which are pretty popular because they portray an exotic look. The various types of chandeliers have been discussed below.
While a traditional crystal chandelier can look at home in almost any setting if you want to go in for an ornate wrought iron chandelier or perhaps a contemporary one it is important to first determine that such a design will match your home décor. Remember while choosing a chandelier style you want to go in for one that matches your décor and not contrasts with it. In addition to the above ease of cleaning number of bulbs (depending on how much lighting you require) and your budget are the other factors to consider when choosing a chandelier.
Black Chandelier Lighting - Many of the old chandeliers were made of iron but could be very heavy which wasn`t so much of a problem since houses were built with large central beams that could support the weight. The black iron look can also be imitated with bronze or brass that is weathered chemically although it doesn`t look exactly the same. A chandelier made of iron can be very contemporary looking even though it has it`s roots in antiquity. Another option is a chandelier made from black glass crystal. It won`t refract the light like a typical crystal chandelier but it can add a sleek modern look to a room.
