I’m not going to swing from the chandelier, actually, but I think the title of Sia’s huge success is perfect for this post about chandeliers.
When I was a child, I loved the big chandelier that hung from the ceiling of both my grandparents’ living room. My grandmother and my grandparents had the same chandelier with all those crystals drops that reflected the light and I love it so much. My parents didn’t keep them after my grandparents passed away and I’m so sorry about that.
Chandelier is a word that derives from “chandelle”, which means candle in French. It’s the evolution of candelabra and it appeared in 14th century. During centuries, its appearance evolved and it became most of all a decorative object, in the sense that of course we need lighting, but just a single light bulb would be enough, but not in order to please the eye.
I think chandeliers immediately add an elegant but also a delightful touch to a room. I particularly like them in the bathroom or in the kitchen, because they are pretty unexpected there. In children’s room, a chandelier immediately adds a lovely “princess touch”.
