The design of chandeliers have evolved over time. Starting in the 14th century they were simply two pieces of wood forming a cross with wooden spikes at each end to be used as candle holders. By the 16th and 17th century, chandeliers were turned into luxurious items that were mainly owned by the wealthy. These fancy light fixtures were usually seen in castles, churches, and abbeys. This symbol of status became its own art form as materials and production techniques improved over time.
