Oil lamps might be a thing of the past, but 'The Cup' by Anton Bjorsing Design gives the enlightening lantern a modern twist by replacing the base with a standard mug.

Drawing direct influence from oil lamps from yesteryear, The Cup allows for soft illumination when other artificial lights just won't do. The contemporary design allows for it to be easily added to any home decor scheme without appearing too flashy or too antique. The base of The Cup is fashioned after a standard coffee mug and comes in three size varieties including small, medium and large with the actual lamp portion scaled up or sized down to blend seamlessly. The basic color scheme adds another layer to The Cup that makes it both adorably retro, but also chic. Stats for Enlightening Mug Lanterns Trending: Older & Chilly
