Last week we talked about lanterns, their many looks and how to use them best. Today we are going to talk about lanterns as electrical light fixtures, a trend that has been around a long time and has had a recent resurgence.

Lantern light fixtures come in all sizes, shapes and finishes and can go with almost any decor scheme. I’m very partial to the brass lanterns I’ve been seeing lately as well as the ones that have an industrial look to them. Lantern light fixtures are one of those things that make us think of the “old days” when lanterns provided the light for most people after dark but made with new materials for the 21st century.

I’m really liking these very geometric lanterns that are on the market.

Love these very slim and sleek black lanterns, and those bulbs.

Dark floors, white walls, dark lanterns on a medium colored ceiling. You get more of the black metal from the lanterns in the door hardware and picture frames.

These lanterns add a touch of color to an all-white kitchen.

Lanterns in halls are always a good idea.

Lanterns are also a great choice for over a kitchen island.

These wicker lanterns are in a hotel lobby, it gives you an idea of how awesome they look clustered together.

Electrical lanterns also make great sconces, I’ve seen several lanterns in the outdoor lighting section of stores that I would use inside a home.
