An Empire chandelier, actually called Empire, is a style which originated in Versailles. For the construction of the palest in Versailles Louis XIV and XV, former Kings of France, collected the best architects and artisans from Europe. They created the unique interior of this royal palace. The Versailles style is characterized by influences of Italy, Bohemia and France. It used to be a chandelier with a gilt-bronze frame, decorated with gorgeous crystal. These chandeliers created a special atmosphere at galas and parties. Under the influence of various kings who used Versailles as residence, this style was further developed. Later versions were decorated even more beautifully. It resulted into a balance between various sizes of crystal.
Empire, or Empire chandelier, is originally a pure French style which originated in France. After the French Revolution this style flourished. Initially, Empire was an interior style for the better citizens. Napoleon had his castles and palaces decorated in this ‘modern’ style. It resulted into the final Empire chandelier.
