Contemporary French Chandeliers

Contemporary French Chandeliers will vary very slightly from antique french chandeliers. As we know that french have been making chandeliers since the 12th century and how they have made them has not changed very much since them. So usually the only way to tell the difference between a antique and a modern chandelier is how shiny the metal is as usually older metal will begin to rust and become more dull.

Contemporary French Chandeliers

When decided whether or not to get a contemporary french chandelier you mush ask yourself many of the same questions you would ask when buying and antique chandelier as they are not very much different at all. You need to be sure that the room that your placing the chandelier in has plenty of ceiling space as these lighting fixtures tend to take up a lot of space. You must also ask yourself what kind of style you want. Chandeliers come in many shapes and sizes. You can have a huge one hanging over with many tiers of lighting or a relatively small one with a single tier of lights. All these are important questions to ask before purchasing a chandelier.

Antique French Chandeliers

Again I'm going to suggest you go with the antique french chandeliers. The modern french chandeliers may appear more shiny and glisten in the sun however they lack the history and character from antique vintage french chandeliers. You know that if you purchase an antique there is a story behind it and sometimes that story is just as interesting as the piece itself. So please take all of this into consideration before purchasing a chandelier.
