A chandelier is an ornate light fixture designed to be mounted on ceilings or walls. An evolution from the candelabra (candles as a source of light), chandeliers were invented and designed during the medieval era with multiple lamps that hung in branched frames and were used primarily by the wealthy to light large spaces. Toward the end of the 20th century, chandeliers did not light up, and they functioned more as a decorative focal point. Incandescent light bulbs have been traditionally used in electric chandeliers, but more modern designs have begun to use fluorescent lamps and LEDs. Due to their traditionally large size, chandeliers are best suited for installation in larger spaces such as hallways, living rooms, dining rooms, and lounges; however, miniature chandeliers, that are smaller in size, allow for the installation in smaller spaces, such as bedrooms.
