Swarovski Crystal Chandeliers

When it comes to finding lighting fixtures for your home, there can be only one company that spells luxury and sparkle – Swarovski Chandeliers. We have seen them in ballrooms and banquet halls, in period films and palaces, but now, chandeliers are becoming the must-have lighting accessory in the home. Chandeliers have always carried the aura of grandeur.

Light matters

Chandeliers are made from a variety of materials; Warm woods and deep colors can complement a crystal chandelier with diffused light to maintain the ambiance. A lot of white or minimalist furniture would best suit a chandelier made with metal, wrought iron or alabaster.

Chandeliers featuring brightly colored glass and out-of-the-box design can add a bit of fun to a sparsely decorated room. If your living room is decked out in plush couches, gold-hued tableware and lots of glass, a crystal chandelier will take the feel of luxury to new heights. Cascading beads of crystal, are sure to catch the light and create an artistic display.
Make a note of ceiling height – you can approximate the appropriate size by multiplying the height of your room by three and dividing that number into inches. You don’t want to hang the chandelier too low as the bulbs can create a glare;  the chandelier should be at least seven feet above the floor.

Style statement

There are many styles of chandeliers available today, most of them drawing inspiration from particular periods in history and art. Keep in mind the décor of your home and pick a piece that will not clash with your style. The Neoclassical chandelier is a classic style with  many arms displayed in twisted or spiral fashion; it can be either simplistic or intricate in detail. If opulence is your aim, the Maria Theresa style is the perfect choice.

Named after the 18th century Austrian Empress, the Maria Theresa chandelier features highly-detailed, curved designs and large crystal beads that hang like raindrops or stars, on a curved frame. It appears to be made completely of glass, but in fact, it is supported by a thin metal frame. Swarovski crystals are commonly used for this style to truly celebrate luxury.

For those whose homes are more contemporary in decor, there are many innovative and funky chandeliers available. Some of the  new styles may not even feature a metal frame, instead opting for a more free-flowing style inspired by falling rain or autumn leaves, like Swarovski’s Strandelier and crystalline icicles.

Modern chandeliers are also more colorful than the usual styles, sometimes adding a dash of red or a pop of pink to your living room.
Whatever your taste or style, a chandelier can brighten up your room in a very luxurious way.

    Yes they may look great hanging there.
    But how the devil do you clean them

    • Hi Nan
      It ain’t easy. I’ve tried all the ‘sparkle’ stuff in the marketplace. I find the very best way to clean mine is with plain old soap and water, piece by piece, taking them down and putting them back up; major project that is certainly worthwhile after it’s done! 🙂
