Two magnificent crystal chandeliers later and they say they are already planning on buying two more in ten years time!

A couple celebrating forty years of marriage decided that there was only one way they could really celebrate their anniversary in style and that was to pay a trip to visit a local chandelier supplier. Two magnificent crystal chandeliers later and they say they are already planning on buying two more in ten years time!

"It may not be what you would call a typical anniversary present but crystal chandeliers are certainly helping the unnamed couple celebrate in style," according to Crystal Corner owner Karen Matthews.

However, it will not be the first time that she has seen a couple leave her showroom with crystal chandeliers as she has been busy running the Westhorpe Road based business since 1980.

Karen is something of an expert when it comes to crystal chandeliers as she served an apprenticeship as a gilder and restorer of chandeliers before deciding to set up Crystal Corner. She is also a self confessed fan of chandeliers and lovingly looks after each restoration project as if it were here own chandelier. It is not a one woman business though as Karen is assisted by her husband Colin, Indeed, the two of them travel to Italy and Europe on the look out for fine examples of antique chandeliers whenever the opportunity arises, leading to some quite special discoveries that Karen can then spend time on restoring, maybe for another long-married couple to invest in.

Despite the economic gloom that has been hanging over much of the UK economy over the last four or five years, it seems that the market for crystal chandeliers has been relatively immune to the shortage of cash in people’s pockets and business has remained strong. With more and more people staying in their homes rather than looking to move, it seems that the smart money is not going in the bank but on the ceiling in the shape of crystal, brass, Murano, Italian and French chandeliers.

With business good, it will not be long before Karen and Colin are off on their crystal chandeliers discoveries once more but in the meantime they will looking after more customers, whether married for forty years or four months. Crystal Corner is located on Westhorpe Road in Marlow and also stocks large wall mirrors, chandelier accessories and wall lights. More information is available by visiting or phone 01628 488868.
