You want to give a special touch to your living room and there is no better way than to do it with a chandelier. There are many chandeliers available on the market but you must need to start from somewhere and this is a shortlist of some of the best types of chandeliers you can find.
Wrought Iron Chandeliers
Wrought iron chandeliers are often simple but still very effective especially if you choose a non electric chandelier with real candles. There are some made by Amish communities that are very affordable and will look great with large candles. You will be able to find wrought iron chandeliers made for electricity and you can even use some LED candles to make it extra special.
The grandfather of all chandeliers, crystal chandeliers are several centuries old and can still be found in large palaces and hotels. Unless you have a very large room with a high ceiling you should not consider a large crystal chandelier but there will be smaller models that can even be placed in a city flat. Also if your decor is modern you should also look at some crystal chandeliers made by contemporary designers.
Murano Glass Chandeliers
Again you can find a traditional looking Murano glass chandelier or settle for something a bit more modern. The glass making tradition of Murano , which is a small island near Venice, started in the 12th century. If you cannot travel to Venice you can still buy Murano glass chandeliers from abroad but ensure that they have the Promovetro mark that means they are genuine articles made in Murano.
You do not need to have a rustic decor to consider one of those chandeliers, they can go quite well with some modern and minimalist looks. The animals discard their antlers naturally once a year which are then collected from the ground and made into chandeliers without harming the animals. The size, color and texture of a real antler chandelier will vary a lot according to the type of animal the antlers came from.
