From Efflorescent Floral Lanterns to Marvelous Mulitasking Illuminators

 - Jul 7, 2012
Lanterns have made a huge comeback in a variety of shapes and sizes, forms and figures in the last few years. No longer used as a main method of illumination, lanterns now have the ability to branch out and be used purely for decorative purpose -- giving them a much greater breadth for experimentation.

From DIY glowing containers that allow you to turn a simple mason jar into an illuminating wonderland to sea creature light sculptures, mystical lanterns are a magical way to spice up any room or backyard party. Innovation has hit the lighting world in a big way and led to some incredible creations that merge utility and beauty to create functional art for any style.
