Obvious Reasons Why a Chandelier is the Best Way to Light a Room

Lightning is one of those projects that is usually postponed, and often ignored, when designing a house. The right kitchen or the right furniture is usually what stays in our heads, leaving lightning as an afterthought. Sad to say, this is a prevailing mistake because there is no better way to set the right mood, feel and atmosphere than with the proper lighting. For example, having too much light in places where you are planning to spend a relaxed time, or having too little light in places where you will plan to read or engage in some activity will make the room feel awkward and unhealthy. Doing a bit of research in regards with the type of lightning pays off big time. Even better, the benefits of a good light setting are for the long term.

There are many reasons why you’ll want to purchase a chandelier. They fit every room including sitting rooms, hallways, bedrooms or kitchens. Chandeliers offer the most versatile source of light and because they come in a variety of design and sizes, they can be accommodated to almost every budget or taste. But sometimes these reasons are forgotten, which is why we are listing the obvious reasons why people acquire chandeliers.

Four Reasons Why a Chandelier Light is the Best Light

REASON #1: THE BEAUTY OF THE PIECE

Of course the main reason to acquire a chandelier is because of its exquisite beauty. It’s shape, tone, curves, carvings, tubes, bulbs and refraction, all create a sight that just can’t be duplicated with other types of hanging or common lamps. Walking into a room and seeing a chandelier is often a moving experience. The kind of regal quality, elegance and style that chandeliers project will have your guests commenting every time they enter your house. Simply put, no other type of light can project what a chandelier can. You can even reduce the amount of furniture and other type of decoration by simply drawing attention to your chandelier.

REASON #2: TIMELINESS OF CHANDELIERS

Without a doubt, the beauty and design of chandeliers is everlasting. Because of styled  lines and curves, it can never go out of fashion. One thing to note here, the design of chandeliers has barely changed from how they were designed hundreds of years ago. This cannot be claimed for modern or contemporary light sources, as they go quickly out of fashion after five or ten years. That’s why it’s better to furnish your home with traditional pieces, it will keep it out of fashion trends.

REASON #3: MANY STYLES AND DESIGNS

Because chandeliers are usually hand-crafted, they come in a variety of sizes and shapes that can almost be traced to the geographical location. This explains why a Murano chandelier can’t be compared with a Tiffany chandelier. This also means that almost all tastes can be accommodated. A modern or contemporary home will be a good fit for a chandelier. An old-fashioned home with antiques will surely be lightened up with a chandelier. If your house is a hybrid mix of modern and traditional, you should pick a colored crystal chandelier. One suggestion is to pick a red or black in order to blend items better.

REASON #4: CONTEMPORARY TRENDS IN LOCATION

It use to be that chandeliers had to be located in hallways or sitting rooms. Not anymore, contemporary design and architecture have revolutionized usual assumptions, leaving ample room for experimentation in moods and atmospheres. Chandeliers displayed over a dining table, or in a kitchen make any room look amazing. The elegance and style projected by a hanging chandelier can never be equalized. These are the obvious reasons why you may want a chandelier, but rest assured, acquiring a Murano glass chandelier will be the best decision you’ll ever make in your interior home decoration. With murano glass mirrors, or other chandelier types you will surely add the touch of class needed by your residence.

Where to buy a Murano Glass Chandelier Online

There are many places where you can buy Murano Glass chandeliers online. We have compiled our very own list of selected vendors. Either because they have been in the market for a long time, because they are a true expert or because they offer a wide range of products. Our intention is to give you, the buyer, the power to make an informed decision.

Please note our selection is based on distributors that carry the Murano seal of authenticity, issued by Promovetro. Feel free to give us a hint if you feel we are missing someone.

Without further ado, this is our list of Murano glass chandelier sellers:

MuranoDirect: A vast selection and simple and useful selection tools based in number of lights and price. We noticed it explicitly shows they hold the Promovetro seal of authenticity. This is possible because Giuliano 😉 (the owner) is a close friend with the Murano artisans. We appreciate the fact that someone took the liberty to show his face. We also liked the product comparison feature. Prices are very competitive and the amount of styles is outstanding.

1stdibs.com: Although they only carry one type of Murano chandelier. The reputable design house has so much products too choose from, it was hard to not count them in this list. We didn’t find the Promovetro seal, but they state their chandeliers are made in Italy. Only one type of chandelier at $2,940 + shipping.

OriginalMuranoGlass.com: This company has been distributing Murano imports for some time. They do offer a wide selection of chandelier styles. From the Traditional and Venetian, to more contemporary ones. We didn’t find the Promovetro seal. Their browsing feature wasn’t very friendly, but they do have nice designs. Also, we did not immediately find the product prices.

MuranoGlassChandeliers.com: This site offers a vast number of styles, colors and prices. their selection is based on size (S/M/L) and style (traditional, contemporary, rezzonico). In general we liked the experience, although we would like a more human touch.

Venice Arte: They offer a lot but we think it was too difficult to find what we were looking for. Their prices are only in euros. And the site looks a bit outdated. Most chandeliers didn’t include a picture. Browsing was just too complicated.

Murano Glass Shop: In general this site has a vast selection of styles. We think their Virtual Designer tool has potential, but we actually didn’t tried it. They also have a nice magazine-like flipping application, but we don’t appreciate the fact that the visuals weren’t too good.

Sogni Di CristalloInterior Deluxe and Italian Lightning Center: These three sites gave us the same impression, thus we include them in one paragraph. The three sites look a bit outdated and similar. They really offer the same products. We didn’t spend too much time here.

That was it for now. We did found many more dealers but we think the certificate of authenticity is an exceptional thing that should be made explicit from the homepage.

As a final note, we only focused on first hand dealers, there are many resellers in Ebay, Houzz, and Etsy too, but we didn’t focused in those.

As you may have guessed, our verdict goes to either “Murano Glass Chandeliers” or “Murano Direct”. Surprise, right? But, we really think it’s an important exercise. You be the final judge.
