Candle Chandeliers

Design Tips:

  • To get the low light effect of candlelight from a candle chandelier, use a dimmer switch. Dimmer switches allow more versatility in lighting options for any chandelier.
  • To get the low light effect of candlelight from a candle chandelier, use a dimmer switch. Dimmer switches allow more versatility in lighting options for any chandelier.
  • Hang large multi-tier candle chandeliers in double height foyers to fill the space. Look for chandeliers with two, three or four tiers for maximum impact.
The original chandeliers were lit with wax candles centuries before gas or electricity were invented. These candle chandeliers were first made from wood boards that were lifted and lowered to illuminate and extinguish the candles. The candles did not create strong light but instead provided a soft glow. As chandelier design evolved and became more ornate, the candle form continued to be popular. Today's candle chandeliers are illuminated with electric bulbs, but maintain the charm and style of the original candlelight fixtures.

Styles

Candle chandeliers today have a wide range of styles and materials. The common thread between them is the candle form of the lamp. Candlecups and bobeches can be simple wrought iron or ornate ormolu. Traditional, Mission, transitional and country candle chandeliers can have several tiers of candles or a single tier on sweeping or straight arms. The look of hand-forged metals is a popular choice for candle chandeliers in keeping with the traditional style. Spanish and Colonial style candle chandeliers have a refined elegance in their simple forms and lines.

Applications

Originally used for banishing shadows from the ceilings of monasteries and churches, candle chandeliers have many applications in today's interior designs. Candlelight is ideal for dining rooms and living rooms, bedrooms and foyers—anywhere where soft, ambient lighting is desired. A candle chandelier above a kitchen table or island works in a number of kitchen styles, including French Country and Rustic styles. Colonial, rustic and Spanish style homes make ideal settings for twinkling candle chandeliers. Insert "applications" paragraph

Centuries before the invention of electricity, oil lamps, candles and firelight were the primary sources of light at night. Gas lamps and chandeliers followed in the 19th century. The earliest chandeliers were simple wooden boards with spikes to hold wax candles. These primitive chandeliers were raised and lowered by chains or rope to light and extinguish the candles. The earliest candle chandeliers were found in churches and monasteries as well as in palaces and the wealthiest homes. With the invention of gas lighting and later electricity, candle chandeliers were adapted and wired for the latest technologies. The candle form continued to be popular long after wax candles were used. Today's candle chandeliers have all the charm and style of their antique predecessors.
The large candle chandelier with 18 lamps in this foyer creates a grand statement. The large scale of the chandelier is perfect for the double height ceiling and grand stair case. The scrolling arms of the chandelier complement the wrought iron baluster of the staircase and the ornate front door. Choosing a chandelier that repeats design elements and lines from other elements in the room creates a well designed room.
Candle wall sconces in a matching style to the chandelier illuminate the entrance. Having other lighting in the space creates a balanced light for the space. The candlelight from the chandelier will create a soft glowing light. Candle chandeliers can also be used in dining rooms and powder rooms, anywhere that would look beautiful in soft, diffused candlelight.Transitional chandeliers and wall sconces come in many finishes including bronze, chrome, nickel and steel. Some chandeliers have glass globes or fabric shades. The transitional chandelier in this dining room adds dynamic energy with its swirling lines, but keeps things simple with clean lines.

River Crest Traditional Petite Chandelier

This is a gorgeous, high-quality chandelier. The scavo glass shades really add to the effect, particularly when used with a dimmer switch. It was beautifully packed, too, so it arrived here in perfect condition. This chandelier looks perfect in my 1920s English revival house.
