From Minimalist Lanterns to Literal Green Lanters

Lanterns are a staple of camping, but these contemporary lantern designs have other ideas. You just wouldn't understand.

Lanterns have been a staple of outdoor lighting for hundreds of years. Only recently have intrepid designers brought the lantern indoors, and the results couldn't look better. If you love lantern light, but hate the thought of looking at a Kenmore, than these contemporary lantern designs are perfect for you and yours.

Implications - Who wouldn't want giant red lanterns hovering over their rooms in a manner that looks like jellyfish floating through air? They almost look like the characters from Pac-Man with their eerie TV monitor-like glow.
