When most people think of crystal light fittings, they think of the opulent chandeliers found in mansions and huge stately homes that evoke a real sense of royalty, but there is much more to them than that.
Crystal lights come in many forms and can work in almost any setting, whether traditional or modern designs! From pendant models to decadent floor and ceiling lamps, crystal lighting is versatile and can be utilised by homeowners, no matter how big or small their homes, and no matter what their personal taste.
We are so enamoured with the beauty of crystal chandeliers we tend to forget that the dazzling shine and light-reflecting qualities originally were used to enhance and distribute the soft light of the candles that once were used as the light source. Those crystals that we love to see sparkle turns a room into a magical space adding romance to your life. These beauties can further be used in any interior space from your entrance hall, bedroom, and bathroom to striking dining and living spaces.
There is nothing that can compare to the way crystal chandeliers provide an ornate atmosphere in rooms, particularly large rooms. However, for those areas over a long rectangular dinner, patio, kitchen table or island – rectangular bar-shaped chandeliers really fit the bill.
Says Melissa Davidson from leading lighting supplier, The Lighting Warehouse: “Choosing lighting for above long rectangular pieces of furniture can be tricky – but nothing illuminates these areas quite as snuggly as bar pendant lights. Due to their rectangular shape, they are able to illuminate the entire length of the area, while still standing out as a striking visual feature in their own right.”
The Elizabeth bar chandelier (R11 999,95) from The Lighting Warehouse for example, will capture your attention while providing great task and ambient lighting in the room in which it is featured. It boasts layers of gorgeous genuine glass crystal drops and strings in geometric formats, which create mesmerising reflections when the light hits them.
