Design ideas with chandeliers
Contemporary chandeliers copy a lot of the original designs, with some extraordinary success. The colour schemes are delightful, using colours that did not always appear in the antique versions, like cream and pink. Modern chandeliers tend to be very monochromatic in their designs, and it is not unusual today to see a black chandelier being used in tandem with a white chandelier for dramatic effects in interior design.
Using chandeliers in today’s home environments are a great way to dress up an interior in a striking fashion. There was a time when they were included in a new built home’s design, but only in a formal dining room setting. Today, you can see them in living rooms, entertainment areas, and even outdoors, under the roof of an attached gazebo or porch space. Constructs of glass, ceramics, metal and wood have given the tradition of using such elegant devices a new life in the modern world.
