The shades on a contemporary light will be made of light brown, beige or classic white. The shades that cover the bulb can be square or cylinder in shape. Pendant lighting would be best used over the top of counters or bars for a dramatic affect on the area or in dining areas.
Contemporary chandeliers are available in a huge variety of styles that will work in just about any room in the home. There are several chandeliers on the market that can be true pieces of art and would look stunning in any contemporary themed dining room while a simple, yet attractive, chandelier would look stunning in a hallway or entryway. They can come with as little as two lights or as many as ten lights hanging on their arms.
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.
