Classic chandeliers have arrays of hanging crystal prisms to illuminate a room with refracted light, while contemporary chandeliers assume a more minimalist design that use modern cut crystal prisms and illuminate a room with sparkling deflected light.
Modern chandeliers have a more modernized design that uses LEDs and combines the elements of both classic and contemporary designs; some are also equipped with refractive crystal prisms or small mirrors to maximize the volume of light illuminating a room.
The most popular uses of crystal lighting are a dazzling crystal chandelier and sparkling pendant lights. However, a new trend in the use of crystal in table and floor lamps, and in the application of decorative crystal directly to the frame or body of lamps and other fixtures. No matter where it is used, crystal offers a one-of-a-kind look that can be treasured and enjoyed for generations to come.
Traditional crystal chandeliers are still popular in today's dining rooms, living rooms, and formal entry areas. A crystal chandelier makes a dramatic statement in any room with high ceilings, lighting up the full volume of the space. Trending today is hanging smaller crystal chandeliers in bedrooms, master bathrooms and walk-in closets along with hanging shimmering pendant lights in hallways and dens all to add elegance and create an upscale glam look and feel.
