Shades of Light


Lanterns have come of age! – Beautiful, versatile and available in many diverse styles. Today lanterns are finding their place in various spaces of individual homes, hotels, restaurants and spas. There is no single object that distinguishes the decorative tone of a room quite like a beautiful hanging light. A lantern gives you a look that rests somewhere between a pendant and a chandelier.

As an Interior Designer, I love using lanterns, especially in outdoor areas, such as on a swimming pool deck or hanging from trees at various levels. Lanterns come in different shapes and sizes and are available in materials ranging from bamboo, wire mesh, polished aluminum and weathered wood.

Signature Favourites: Pair the wire mesh lanterns with the polished brass ones to achieve the perfect contrast.
