Chandelier: The jewel among lights

Friday, April 07, 2017

When it comes to lighting up a house, without hesitation, one of the best choices are chandeliers. Shamil Mohite enlightens you on the same

Good lighting in the interior gives the room a relaxed and comfortable feeling. The light should be discreet and unobtrusive but at the same time that it serves a purpose. This is where chandeliers come in handy. They not only draw attention, but the word instantly brings to mind the royal regime of kings and queens.

That Royal Feeling
A chandelier was almost a must-have in the palaces and courts of kings and queens. It symbolises and reflects the royal feel of yesteryears. A wisely picked chandelier can not only add a spark to the lighting in your house but can also serve as a splendid distinction to the interiors of your house.

Chandeliers offer added elegance and charm as well as light to the house. There are many to choose from and these can be custom made as well. But one needs to take the style of home in consideration and accordingly select a piece of chandelier. The colour, size and function of the room are other important things to take into account. Budget is another important consideration. One can then decide on the right chandelier that will beautifully fit into the house and also complement it.

Where To Place
The most common places to find a lovely looking chandelier are high ceiling lobbies, living rooms. The chandelier over the dining table will make the dining room looks centralised and harmonious. It will become the focus of events in the interior and the first thing you will see when you enter the room.

One can bring the classic beauty and timeless elegance of a vintage chandelier to one’s home. A popular choice is the crystal chandelier. This beautiful piece of art is a great piece to add to a home. According to the room size, one also needs to decide how many lights are needed in the chandelier. The degree of brightness will vary for different rooms. Other types are the beaded and shell chandeliers. They fit beautifully in the contemporary set up. Evoking a similar glistening femininity to the crystal variety, the beaded chandeliers tone down the formality that comes with the traditional crystal chandelier.

Spoilt For Choice
Metal chandeliersare simple and also widely picked. They mostly have s-shaped arms or otherwise curved, but modern designs reflect more use of geometric lines. Brass, brushed nickel and wrought iron are some of the popular metallic finishes for chandeliers.  

The Italian beauty of Murano glass chandeliers with tubular forms and floral motifs available in different colours are another interesting option to choose from. Characterised with certain boxiness, mission chandeliers consist of a central metal ceiling branching out to several short, angular arms and look quite arty.

Today, we can see a range of contemporary designs being incorporated even in chandeliers. There are modern chandeliers that hang like several small versions of a typical halogen lamp upside down, facing the floor instead of the ceiling.

The possibilities are endless with these modern infusions which go not only with the most black and white modern décor but also with the rustic designed living room.  So, get a lovely chandelier to add spark to your home.
