If you’re looking for modern chandeliers then you must read this article. You can find them in a variety of forms, from the contemporary ones to vintage.
The main difference between the two is the materials an design. The first one is more modern and it can be made of plastic, crystals, chrome or silver brass materials following linear design with modern fragmentation.
The vintage ones are old looking and are made only from steel or copper with fixed lightning.
You should keep in mind that buying a modern chandelier doesn’t replace other types of lightning like regular lamps or table lamps.
Whether it’s classic or modern they do require active maintenance because of their massive form.
Chandelier go really well with rooms that are in a certain style and can easily complement or even design the whole room. Since their making they’ve been used to show opulence and only high class people used them. The first chandelier was made for a German baron in Bavaria as a way to show his wealth. He used 353 crystals and the chandelier weighted 35kg.
In our days, they are not anymore used as a way to show someones wealth and are mostly used for their primary function: light.
The modern day chandelier is a lot different from the antique one because it’s dimensions have been reduced a lot and the plastic is predominant in it’s construction. There is a common misconception that the contemporary chandeliers are a lot cheaper than the vintage ones but that isn’t true because some of the most expensive ones are in fact made of plastic and don’t have any crystals hanging.
A modern chandelier costs somewhere between $200-300 but the designer ones can reach up to £10,000 and even more.
