As these light sources change so does the practice of lighting Design. By the early 18th century, ornate cast ormolu forms with long, curved arms and many candles were in the homes of many in the growing merchant class. Neoclassical motifs became an increasingly common element, mostly in cast metals but also in carved and gilded wood. Chandeliers made in this style also drew heavily on the aesthetic of ancient Greece and Rome, incorporating clean lines, classical proportions and mythological creatures. Developments in glassmaking later allowed cheaper production of lead crystal, the light scattering properties of which quickly made it a popular addition to the form, leading to the crystal chandelier. During the 18th century glass chandeliers were produced by Bohemiens and Venetian glassmakers who were both masters in the art of making chandeliers.
Flush Lights: Mostly available in round shapes, the lights are fitted inside the rim, which can be of silver or gold or any other color. These lights can be conveniently used in kitchens as the area gets brightly lit up by these lights. Also available in square forms, these can be used in bedrooms as well. Semi-Flush Ceiling Lighting - Basically, a transition form between Single Glass Pendant Lights and Flush Ceiling Lights. They hand down from the ceiling slightly.
The next major drop in price came about with the incandescent light bulb powered by electricity.Over time, electric lighting became ubiquitous in developed countries. Segmented sleep patterns disappeared, improved nighttime lighting made people made more activities possible at night, and more street lights reduced urban crime. Without light fittings there can be no Architectural Lighting Design.
