The top five most innovative chandeliers available

Considering this is a blog that is broadly about lighting, we thought we’d kick off the blog by writing about our favourite type of light. Can you guess what it could be? Have you got any clue. Well I guess that title is a fairly big clue. Yes, that’s right; it’s the chandelier.

I don’t think anyone really has any right to argue with us here. The chandelier is clearly the most perfect and beautiful of all possible light installations. Today we thought it’d be best to discuses our top 5 in terms of innovation, design and beauty. So without further a do, let’s get on with it and start our list.

First up is possibly the pick of the bunch, and we know it’s a favourite amongst Italian designer chandeliers uk enthusiasts worldwide. It’s what some may refer to as the empire or basket style. It is a normal array of lights that you’d usually find, but it also is encompassed by a number of strings of crystals that shower the entire thing. It is an incredible look and is in our opinion the best there is. There is one just like this in Galt. It can be found in the state of Kentucky, and is well worth a visit if you live or are travelling nearby.
Next up is what many people refer to as a tiered light. It is literally a tiered array of lights and many people have taken to calling and referring to it as a wedding cake, as it most definitely looks like one, only upside down. These types are fairly common, and you wouldn’t be surprised to see them in the homes of many people. Despite the fact they don’t appear to be particularly rare, we still think they look great, and definitely have a grandiose feel about them.


Lastly is an extremely grand and posh looking chandelier. We’ve been looking around and researching, and we are yet to find a definitive name for this particular light, but it does take after a named style. Some refer to it as baroque or neo baroque. Either way, it doesn’t take anything away from the beauty of this type. Apparently even the french general Napoleon had one of these in his house. So if it’s good enough for him, we can categorically say it will be good enough for anyone.

That concludes our list. We hope you had fun reading it. Please tell us which chandeliers are your favourites, and which you’d add to your own personal list.

Solar and Wireless Lighting For All

This is the young and the wireless. A place where we’ll be discussing the latest advancements in the technology of lights and lighting. I’ve started this blog because it really is a pure passion of mine. I’ve always been interested in how things work. When I was younger I’d spend hours dismantling objects and opening up the back of tv’s and radios. Of course my parents got mad when I eventually couldn’t put any of it back together again, but the important thing is these early years fuelled a growing interest in technology, and more recently lighting. Solar lights intrigue me so much, that I’ll be posting regularly about them.
