Chandeliers are a group of fittings that can be hung from a chain or fitted closer to the ceiling, but must have more than one lamp bulb. Sometimes known as a multi-arm chandelier, they range from the smallest to the very grand.
They have been around since medieval times when they were made of iron by a blacksmith and adorned with candles to give light. They were very dangerous and were often the source of burning down buildings. Large and heavy, they were held in place by a rope pulley system so that the fiiting could be lowered to replace the candles. The high cost of manufacture made the first chandeliers a real status piece as only the wealthy could afford them.
Thanfully a chandeliers are now available in many shapes, sizes, and finishes. Some have a single tier or multiple tiers of lamps. Some people love the look of chandeliers, but think that they are too fancy or that their rooms are simply not large enough.
