Reading Time: 1 minute

And now, a special treat, lighting and design fans!

Here’s an interactive graphic from guest writer Matt Redford at Decor about – you guessed it – the history of chandeliers!


Chandeliers are known as grand, elaborate lighting fixtures which commonly have homes within some of the finest buildings in the world. Chandeliers haven’t always been so elaborate though, as we reveal in our chandelier timeline. The interactive timeline below identifies the rich history of chandeliers from simple wooden structures to awe inspiring modern adaptations of the chandelier in Las Vegas.

Are there any historical points that we have missed? Please let us know and we will update the timeline.
