Glittering Prizes

Statement lighting comes in many shapes and forms but for adding artistry, drama and romance to a space, chandeliers are hard to beat. 

Originating in the 16th century, they have always been an extravagance - more decorative than functional and highly prized.  Found in churches and monasteries (and occasionally in the private homes of the wealthy) they were lit by candles and used rarely. Crystal versions appeared towards the end of the 16th century, dressed with irregular rock crystal, but by the end of the 17th century, the more familiar regular polished glass trimmings were being used. 

Today, evitavonni stocks a variety of stunning contemporary examples by some of Europe’s finest designer/manufacturers, with traditional lead crystal prism decorations as well as more organic drops and saucer shapes.  Their glittering beauty provides a fantastic welcome in a hallway: suspended in a bathroom, they turn every bath time in to a luxurious indulgence.  Chandeliers are also an increasingly popular addition to kitchens, particularly over island units and dining tables, where they add softness and sophistication to a utilitarian space.
