Contemporary Chandelier Lighting - Many contemporary chandeliers don`t have the branched arms we think of in a classic lighting chandelier. Instead they have a central support holding up a central lighted area. This is typical of an art deco or craftsman style chandelier. Modern chandelier lighting with a central support are typically called pendant chandeliers. They can come in all sizes and shapes, from mini chandeliers to streamlined steel.
Remember to stick with the classic designs. Remember that a colored chandelier will become dated in another 5-10 years. Match the chandelier to the room and the mood you wish to feel rather than with the times.
Murano glass chandeliers are contemporary chandelier fixtures that originated from Murano, Italy, which is regarded as the glass blowing capital of the world. These light fixtures denote a specific chandelier design that is often curvy and tubular in form, exclusively made from blown Murano glass. Because glass can be molded into several shapes, Murano chandeliers are often utilized with floral motifs and other complex figures, and usually comes in pastel hues. The use of different colors in these chandeliers allows them to emit unique and creative light effects.

On the other hand, antler chandeliers, as their name implies, are derived from the shed antlers of deer, elk or moose. These chandelier lighting fixtures are commonly used in western-style homes such as log cabins and ranch residences. You can establish a rustic appeal inside your living space just by hanging an antler chandelier on your ceiling. If you can`t afford an authentic antler chandelier piece, you can opt for a faux antler chandelier that is made from plastic fibers, designed to look like original antlers.
Another important size consideration is the length. A chandelier should be at least 30 inches above the table that it will hang over. This is the optimum height as it is high enough to leave adequate room to place things under the chandelier and is low enough to provide the desired lighting. Thus, after subtracting 30 inches from the top of the table to the ceiling, and 3-4 inches for the chandelier hook, the space left can be used to decide the length of the chandelier. Once again, you can be a little flexible here. If you usually use very tall centerpieces on your table, you should choose a chandelier that is a little shorter.
