Lighting Trend

5 Jun


The lantern is the new chandelier, and I am so excited about it! I love this trend because it is so universal. You can use indoor hanging lanterns with any decor. Modern to traditional, you name it, it will work. This is actually an historic trend brought back to life recently. You will find a lot of  glass-globe lanterns in hictoric home across America, a lot of which used to be candle burning (before electricity) and have since been electrified. CotedeTexas just published a great post about hunting down antique French lanterns, which are beautiful (go check it out). Shades of Light (a national lighting catalog) is a great resource if you are looking to delve into this classic “trend”. Check out the pics at the bottom of this post to see a small sample of there collection.
