Throwback Thursdays- The Glistening Ambience

The reflection of the chandelier sparkled off every wall and visitor that entered the center. The Waterford crystal chandelier was installed in the Waterford Mall in 1985 and was the largest at the time in the United States. Shopping centers are the 3rd most visited place for the average American after home and work. Therefor, as Stephan R. Karp, ICSC president in 1985 and brainchild behind the chandelier said, “It’s very important for a developer to make the shopping experience as pleasant as possible. The chandelier will do that in a very special way.”
