Opulent Lighting: White Chandeliers

Chandeliers were first adopted as a practical way to light a space, and consisted of a simple wooden cross supporting a candle. Mainly used in grand, stately homes, the first chandeliers served a functional purpose and it wasn’t until much later on that they became the opulent pieces we would recognise today.

Edging towards the 17th century, chandeliers began featuring adornments of crystal and tiles, and had become a sought after item throughout Europe. Although chandeliers were more widespread, they remained items only for the wealthy and cemented their place as a symbol of affluence and prestige. A few centuries later and the chandelier has stood the test of time, now lit by electricity rather than candles, and perhaps most importantly, are no longer reserved just for the wealthy.

Here are a few of our white chandeliers designed to bring a classic, crisp showpiece into a space in your home.

The Classic Chandelier

This five arm chandelier embodies the essence of a typical chandelier we would recognise today. A luxurious addition to any home, the white arms feature a brushed silver detail and a generous peppering of genuine crystal beads. If you are searching for a chandelier that oozes glamour and sophistication, then this may be the one for you.

On a practical note, this piece is height adjustable to cater to any size room and is dimmable too to create extra ambience in your chosen room.

The Show Stopper

The bold Whitney Chandelier from Elstead Lighting is designed for maximum wow factor. A modern update on the traditional chandelier, this piece is sure to draw admiring looks from your guests.

The Whitney takes a classic design and gives it a contemporary twist, bringing you a show stopping chandelier with a modern edge. Hanging crystals are generously highlighted by the reflections from the silver finish of the gently curving arms, while the white organza shades are finished with a stylish and modern dark grey trim.

The Simpler Chandelier

At First Choice Lighting, we hold a wide range of stock to cater for those looking for a simpler chandelier to light a cosy space while still benefiting from the glamour of a chandelier.
