What is a Wood Chandelier?

Wood chandeliers are wooden hanging lights that provide outstanding accent lighting and are suspended on rods or chains just like the traditional or modern chandeliers, but they are made of wood. Wood or timber chandeliers, like any other light and ceiling fixtures, are composed of the following parts: the body, which is made of timber or wood, the lampshade, the metal structure connecting the body to the electrical wire or lamp holder attached to the metal structure. Then there is the chain or rod, which is made of either wrought iron or metal, which is used to suspend such a chandelier from the ceiling. 

Wooden chandeliers are best to display in big and light spaces, but they're suitable to open areas too. You can put them over the dining table, on top of the kitchen island, foyer, as a centrepiece in a ballroom, living room, and even in a workplace lobby if you want to. They are generally decorated with ornate pieces of cut glass. Some have artful carvings, and others might have crystal parts, making them even more attractive. Furthermore, modern wood chandeliers do not reflect light, unlike metal or glass, so using them in dark or small spaces is not advisable as they may make the room look darker and smaller. Hence, as a word of advice, if you want a low-maintenance chandelier to put in a dark and gloomy area, wooden chandeliers might not be your best choice.
