One of my favorite topics is the chandelier because of its history as a method of lighting that was used before the sixteenth century. The earliest chandeliers were very basic, almost primitive devices that involved two pieces of wood connected together to form a cross. A spike was inserted at each end to hold the candles and a rope or chain was connected to the crosspiece and then suspended from the ceiling. As a former antique dealer, Ive found that nearly all of the earliest chandeliers were destroyed and very few authentic examples remain in existence today.
There are three main types of lighting, general, task, and accent. General lighting is your main light source for the room. These are your floor lamps or your recessed and track lighting. Task lighting is focused on a specific area. A perfect example of task lighting is a light installed under a kitchen cabinet so you can see the counters better. Finally, accent lighting is used to subtly illuminate an area. You can often find this lighting around the landscape in your garden or on an end table in the living room.
One of the major appealing characteristics of todays chandeliers, are their versatility. A kitchen can be transformed into a high-class dining area with the addition of the right chandelier. A large bathroom can be given an air of elegance with the installation of a chandelier. Some homeowners will even use a chandelier in the master bedroom to give it that special feeling.
Let us assume that we have plastic chandelier frames and decorate them to add a new look to the chandelier. Measure the length of the shade and cut the ribbon strips inch more than the measurements.
