A chandelier can transform a room, so knowing which style to go for is very important. If your taste is more vintage there are some excellent repurposed chandeliers out there. However, if contemporary is more your style, there are endless options to brighten up your spaces.
Why shop Antique?
The classic styles of antique chandeliers will forever be timeless as they carry their elegance through the ages. Great chandeliers will forever ooze the decadence and nostalgia of the renaissance period. Investing in a vintage piece can make you feel like a duke or duchess, but paying for the repairs will leave you feeling like a pauper.
Being a vintage item, it may be harder to find someone capable of repairing it- which will come with an added cost. You will also need to bear in mind the functionality. There is a high likelihood that its fixtures will need adapting to meet modern standards, as it is an older accessory.
Cleaning antiques can be a very daunting task- which is why we would advise enlisting the help of professionals who are expertly trained in dealing with the intricate and delicate features such as the beading and glass crystals.
Why shop Contemporary?
Alternatively, contemporary chandeliers offer a more discrete element of glamour by still using crystals, but often by being more extravagant designs, moving away from the typical candelabra skeleton that you would expect. With much more choice of design, modern chandeliers are also a much more budget-friendly option. For a fraction of the cost, you can still acquire a show-stopping piece to elevate your room.
If you’re looking for the perfect finishing touch to your décor, then nothing beats a modern chandelier. The sleek and stylish design will not only add character but also elegance to any space while its minimalistic appeal is more appealing than ever before in our current trends-driven society!
