In the fast-paced world of design, the role of tradition can often be overlooked. As we move toward mid-2023, it raises the question: can we still embrace tradition in our designs? 

The answer is undoubtedly yes. Below explores Murano’s long history with glass chandeliers and our modern outlook to understand why embracing tradition can amplify the beauty and elegance of contemporary interiors.

Traditional Murano Glass Chandelier

Murano is renowned for its exquisite glasswork and its historic tradition in glass blowing. Its history with glass can be traced back to as early as the 8th century, and it has been a center for craftsmanship ever since. One of the hallmark pieces of Murano glass work is the chandelier.

From the intricate details to the small, delicate parts, creating a Murano glass chandelier is a work of art. The precision and delicate designs of these chandeliers require exceptional skills, which are honed over many years of working with the medium.

The modern era has seen the introduction of more contemporary lighting designs that prioritize functionality and linear shapes. Quite a side step from the ornate nature of traditional chandeliers. However, that does not mean that a traditional chandelier is out of place in a modern interior.
