How are the chandeliers packed and protected against damage during shipment?
All chandeliers (except the Basket type) are shipped dismantled. Individual labelled parts of the chandeliers are packed in the bubble wrap and wrapping paper and then they are put into the thickest 5-layer cardboard box with a protective lining. Every package contains assembly instructions and a guarantee document.
If you order two and more products, the cardboard boxes are put into a master carton which is put and fixed to the pallet. The whole pallet is then wrapped with a stretch foil and fixed with PP strapping strips with protective plastic pads which should prevent the strips from tearing and prevent the master carton from damaging.

Are the chandeliers shipped with light bulbs?
Our chandeliers are delivered without light bulbs.
What types of light bulbs do you recommend?
We recommend replacing the classic 40W candle light bulbs with energy saving halogen OSRAM light bulbs (type Halogen ECO PRO Classic B 30W, E14 base) or Philips light bulbs (type EcoClassic E14 28W 230V B35) shaped like a candle. Also you can use OSRAM light bulbs (type Halogen ECO PRO Classic BW 30W, E14 base) or Philips light bulbs (type EcoClassic E14 28W 230V B35S) shaped like a twisted candle.
Halogen light bulbs:
pleasant natural light
save up to 30% energy
double lifetime compared with an ordinary light bulb; OSRAM says that the average life is 2 years when used approximately 2.7 hours a day
don't contain mercury or any other harmful substances and can be therefore disposed with domestic waste
You can also replace the classic 40W candle light bulbs with energy saving fluorescent lamps OSRAM Dulux Superstar Mini Candle 7W with an average life up to 15 years (about 15,000 hours) or OSRAM Duluxstar Mini Candle 7W with an average life up to 10 years (about 10,000 hours).
Energy saving fluorescent lamps:
save up to 80% energy
cost more than halogen light bulbs

LED light bulbs represent the future of the lighting industry. The newest LED light bulbs by OSRAM called Parathom Classic in the shape of a classic candle save up to 80% energy and can therefore replace classic 25W candle light bulbs. They have an extremely long life (up to 25 years when used approximately 2.7 hours a day) and therefore they represent the ecologic future of the lighting industry.
