Someone asked me the other day if lanterns were passe' to which I replied "no, never!" There are some design classics that never go extinct. Lantern lighting just happens to be one of those perennials.
Lanterns have been welcoming guests for centuries, whether they adorn the sides of our front doorway or light the way through our foyers and entrances. Years ago, this was the only place they used them, we all now today, that has all changed.
There are so many designs today to choose from and they produce a beautiful romantic light that no light bulb can ever recreate, particularly, that special ambient lighting in your garden.
