Dating back to the Middle Ages, chandeliers have come a long way from branched animal fat candle holders to a symbol of social stature and now an elegant light fixture present in thousands of homes. Yes, you read that right. The word chandelier is a French derivative of chandelle- meaning candle. Back in 1066, the Anglo-Saxon churches would suspend wooden structures from their ceilings to support candles made from animal fat for adequate lighting across the room; such was the humble beginnings of chandeliers. Decades later, these lighting fixtures have come to see a myriad of variations and updates, including the innovation of the LED chandelier.
