Lanterns have played an important part in our nation’s history ever since the whole “one if by land, two if by sea,” Paul Revere thing. (Which would be super easy to reenact on this front porch!) But, if you ask us, these lighting staples are far from out of date!

Statement lighting is a trend that, to us, is always in style. For a traditional feel whose style keeps hanging around (pun intended), look no further than lanterns.

If the typical lantern seems too staid for your home, we love a good play on the staple. Fun takes on shape make the look fresh and fun.

You know we love a little whimsical flair, and these lanterns really deliver that. They remind us of something out of a Dr. Seuss book–a really chic Dr. Seuss book, that is.

But, sometimes, you need your lighting to hang quietly, to make a softer, subtler statement.

For those times, a wood lantern delivers an organic feel that complements the room perfectly.

An older home generally calls for a certain look. And these lanterns add a particular antique feel.

There’s nothing like dining by the glow of candlelight. If you’re dining by the glow of candlelight outside, all the better!
