Crystal chandeliers have been enchanting us for centuries.  Dating back to medieval times, long before electricity, chandeliers were fitted with candles  and hung from the ceiling to illuminate a room.  Chandeliers were most commonly found in castles and used to signify fortune and rank.  Around the 17th century, advancements in glass making brought down the cost of glass and lead crystal, leading to new models of chandeliers using this glass.  The refractive surface of the hand-cut and polished glass maximized the candle light  and helped to create a beautiful focal point for the room.

Although crystal chandeliers are most often associated with elegant, luxe interiors, the use of crystal in lighting has evolved to include many designs that compliment any style decor.

The Greek Key motif is an important element of Neoclassical architecture and design dating back to Ancient Greek times.  Also known as a meander (named for the twisting and turning path of the Meander River in Asia Minor) it was one of the most important symbols in ancient Greece; symbolizing unity, infinity, and the eternal flow of things.  The Greek key motif can take a number of different forms; it is commonly comprised of a series of right-angled interlocking lines, forming either a continuous spiral, or a maze-like network of broken and connected lines.  The classic design was a popular embellishment on pottery, armor, architectural friezes, and many other works of art.

Today, the Greek key is used as a fashionable embellishment in both exterior and interior design and is especially prevalent as a decorative border.  Whether used to make a bold statement, or as subtle addition to your design — we love how the Greek key motif can be used to transform a space.
