The chandelier is part of the category of lamp called suspension luminaire
Centerpiece of your indoor lighting, the chandelier is majestic and will highlight the space where it will be installed. Generally larger sizes than the suspension, this fixture is composed of several arms or rods converging all towards a central point of the lamp. This fixture will give your stay a warm atmosphere and a certain cachet, it will similarly influence and support considerably your decoration.
In the category of lamps for ceiling and the same as the ceiling, the chandelier is the main lighting in a room. It is intended to bring a certain amount of light. It should not be too low or too powerful, but calculated based on the space that must be informed.
However substantially differentiate these two types of lighting will be the space that must be informed and the height that is available under the ceiling.
For a room with a low ceiling, you will be advised to choose a ceiling light because it has a footprint very limited by its size and the fact that it is directly installed on even the ceiling.
The chandelier meanwhile will be mainly used in a space where the lamp can be suspended and where it will be possible to have a distance of at least 2.15 m below this lamp. You must not hinder the circulation in the room or parasitize the eyes in space or light is installed.
To do this, it is advisable to never on or downsize this fixture, but to maintain a harmonious balance to all.
This lamp must impose without crushing or suffocating space where it will be suspended.
The difference between these two types of lamps is subtle and often a suspension is also called a chandelier. I will nevertheless try to differentiate by aesthetic and technical characteristics. Although both are suspended and decorative lamps, their size and their use will be somewhat different. The chandelier is a majestic in size, consisting of several arm lamp, it will be equipped with several light sources. Placed as primary lighting in a living room or a large entrance hall, this light creates magic and will contribute to the ambiance of the place where it is suspended. The suspension is smaller in size, consisting of a single structure, it is generally composed of a power cable that will equip one light source. In this category of luminaires, we'll find the industrial suspension or suspension feather to equip a room, a light bulb design and simple suspension that will be used over a kitchen island. Less complex as a chandelier, but offering many different colours and shapes, this fixture will provide the opportunity to be placed in almost every room and be used for multiple uses. You can also take advantage of the one without the disadvantages of the other, positioned over a table cluster, you will get a suspension chandelier decorative Trump and the lightness of the whole. With these characteristics, some suspensions that have a more consistent size are also called chandelier design or contemporary chandelier.
In the family of the suspended lamps, there are also some differences between a baroque chandelier and a chandelier design.
The crystal chandelier is back!
Majestic and noble, it is usually the first thing you notice when you walk into the room. Composed of arms in glass blown and dressed in tassels with glittering reflections, it creates the magic in the room where it is installed.

This lamp is factory and by itself will impose! Focus on the style and the sobriety of the place where it will be hanging chandelier to bring out its scenographic and theatrical side.

The baroque Venetian chandelier is the major competitor of Crystal pendants lamps, Venetian style is made of blown glass of Murano. This chandelier is easily recognizable by his colorful style that combines bold colours with plant forms. In a more modern style, this hand made lamp is timeless and majestic.
The hot air balloon chandelier is crystal Bohemian and topped with made in diamond pendants. In the form of a reverse balloon, this Empire Napoleon style is resolutely classical and unsuited to modern interiors.
When the classic chandelier reinvents and modernizes.
It is a reinterpretation of the style, but with more sober lines and a simplified design. Unlike the suspension often of smaller size, the design chandelier will impose by its volume and its modern style.
Equipped with several light bulbs, it will be the central element of the piece and bring light main and needed to light the place or will be suspended.

The color or shape of the luminaire will also influence your choice, because a white chandelier with its light color will tend to more to blend in the piece, in contrast to the black chandelier that will increase its presence in the room where it will be installed.
A chandelier can however have a large diameter and still be placed in a room or ceiling height is 2.5 m minimum.
