When most people think of chandeliers, they think of very classically styled foyers, dining rooms, and sitting rooms. The truth is, however, that there are also a wide variety of Contemporary Chandeliers that will look as great in modern-styled rooms as the more traditional Crystal Chandeliers will look in rooms with a more vintage styling. A chandelier is a great way to provide not just light to a room, but grandeur.

Originally created to better distribute light throughout a room before the discovery and implementation of electricity, they 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.
