The Crystal Chandelier Like Centerpiece In Our Homes

Chandeliers are for rooms what jewelry is for women. Large charged sumptuous rooms demand the central presence of an elegant chandelier, but sometimes chandeliers fit very well also a simple modern room. It’s just like in women’s fashion. A simple little black dress always matches a diamond necklace.

Specially created for ballrooms, chandeliers are a symbol of elegance and pretention. As we may see them also in churches, we may consider they also are a symbol of respect and sacredness. This is why in time they became a symbol of select people. Today you may also see them in restaurants and concert halls. The normal placement of a chandelier is in the middle of the room. It attracts all attention toward this central point that spreads all the light. The chandelier must be elegantly designed and luxurious because it becomes the source of light which is the symbol of life.

The chandelier entered also usual houses, for a touch of elegance. Most of them are installed in stylish living rooms for a classical extra touch, but there are also modern designs of chandeliers that fit contemporary living rooms. The most loved and elegant impressive chandeliers are the crystal chandeliers. Being made of white clear crystal, they don’t charge the room and they uniformly dispose the light without changing its color. The classical shape o a chandelier is the bulb one, but there are also other shapes, such as tear drop shape, bell shape or pyramidal shape.

For the simple modern rooms, designers created unconventional shapes, such as branches, flowers, plates, or simple icicles, all of them keeping the same elegant effect, but without charging the room. You can install chandeliers in your living room, your dining room, your bed room, even in your bathroom, or to be more concise, everywhere you want to draw the eyes.{all pics from decorati}.
