Today Home and Decoration presents you luxury chandeliers for your luxury home.
Originally created to better distribute light throughout a room before the discovery and implementation of electricity, chandeliers soon became status symbols. The larger and more ornate the chandelier was, the higher class it was believed to be. The word “chandelier” comes from the French word for “candle holder.” Simply, they were designed to hold candles and light a large room from above. They first started to appear in homes in the 14th century, at first made simply from wood, with metal spikes for holding the candles. Eventually, as the idea of hanging candles from the ceiling began to take hold, they began to become more and more extravagant, to the point that besides the chandeliers hung in public spaces like churches and abbeys, only the rich could afford what we would now consider to be a chandelier.
Soon, it became clear that wood was not the best material for large chandeliers. Instead, metal and crystal chandeliers became the norm. Metal was preferable because of its strength and because it is impervious to flame. Crystal chandeliers became popular because the hung crystals would help to scatter the light, making dim rooms appear brighter. Over time, the chandelier became more and more associated with wealth. Designs became not just more lavish, but also more intricate. Even when gas lighting and, eventually, electricity began to make lighting rooms more convenient, the chandelier persisted and continued to be the very best option for lighting rooms while also making a statement.
Today, the primary role of a chandelier is the same as it always has been: to provide light. But they are still a symbol of style and even, depending on the size and design of the chandelier, of extravagance.
