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.
Choosing a chandelier is made simple by the many different styles. Today there are chandeliers and other hanging lamps designed to fit into almost any décor. Even men who dream in flannel and boots can find a variety of chandelier styles to fit their design scheme. Below are a few style choices:
Another important size consideration is the length. A chandelier should be at least 30 inches above the table that it will hang over. This is the optimum height as it is high enough to leave adequate room to place things under the chandelier and is low enough to provide the desired lighting. Thus after subtracting 30 inches from the top of the table to the ceiling and 3-4 inches for the chandelier hook the space left can be used to decide the length of the chandelier. Once again you can be a little flexible here. If you usually use very tall centerpieces on your table you should choose a chandelier that is a little shorter.
