Hanging Lamps

Hanging lamps have been very popular since the old days, in decorating the room. Hanging lamps are suspended from the ceiling with the help of a hook attached to the base of the lamp. This helps the lamp to remain suspended from the ceiling facing downwards and thus being able to light up the room and unfold the décor. Hanging lamps can be illuminated with oil wicks, gas, candles or electrical devices. These lamps do not take up room space and yet deliver the desired elegance to the room.

Hanging lamps come in different shapes and sizes, made of different materials. Different patterns are used to beautify the lamp and make provisions for placing lighting devices, to conceal them. The different categories of hanging lamps include chandeliers and dinner and ceiling hanging lamps. On the basis of the designs and patterns, they can be used in different rooms. A gorgeous chandelier is apt to adorn the living room or the drawing room, whereas comparatively simpler dinner lamps are best suited for the dining rooms.

The lighting devices fitted can also vary, depending on the lamp structure. There are several bright fixtures used in chandeliers and soft mellow single lights in dinner lamps. Another popular category of hanging lamps is the flame lamp. Single flames are placed in the center of the hanging lamp, imparting an extremely ethnic and elegant look. Antique hanging lamps are also very popular among the lamp collectors. A traditional hanging lamp can refresh memories of the past and lend a unique elegance to the ambience of the room. Hanging lamps are made of different varieties of glass and wood.

Several lamp dealers sell hanging lamps online. Buyers can go through the online catalogs providing all the details of the products, including the prices and other charges.
