Years ago Crystal Chandeliers where reserved for the formal dining room. Kitchens were viewed as the back room of the house and not visible to guests. It was the down and dirty room of the house where food was prepared and the room was more about function then style. In today's glamorous home designs, the kitchen is opened up with an open room concept. It is the center of the home and the gathering point for when guests arrive. It may be the entertainment area for serving drinks and h'orderves.Crystorama Lighting. Abraham Kleinberg founded Crystorama Lighting Group in Brooklyn, New York in 1958.
