The large chandelier was born in ancient times. At that time, its only purpose was to light-up the room where it was installed, it wasn’t the object of any decoration. Often made of wood, chandeliers were distinguished by their thin branches; candles were placed on them to light the room.
In the 15th century, they were a sign of wealth; that the nobility and monarchy took away to give even more value to their castles and other properties.
Replaced by gas lighting in the 20th century, then by light bulbs, real candles were no longer useful. Chandelier makers wanted to remain true to the spirit of the chandelier, which is one of the reasons why the bulb sockets were hidden behind fake candles.
Over the years, the role of the chandelier has diversified, this lighting object has become accessible to all, it has found its place in the world of decoration! Indeed, the generalization of electricity has enabled the middle class to take advantage of this lighting. Today, everyone can get a chandelier, or a big pendant light and hang it in any room of its house: in his living room for example. Highly appreciated, chandeliers are perfectly suited to larger spaces such as lobbies or restaurants; they offer a warm and welcoming atmosphere to the room while adding their aesthetic touch.
