Want to add some character to your living room? Does your patio need something to brighten its ambience? Moroccan style and Moroccan lanterns are just what you are looking for! They are available in varying designs and bold colors including purple, silver, white, blue, and red – a Moroccan lantern can completely transform surrounding areas by accentuating lighting elements and casting shadows at proper angles. Moroccan outdoor lanterns are extremely popular in weddings or parties with a Moroccan theme.
What are the types of lanterns available?
These lanterns can be classified in two groups based on the way they are hung – a Moroccan hanging lantern or Moroccan chandelier, as is evident from the name is dangled overhead and the light spreads from the top, while a Moroccan lantern centerpiece is used mostly during weddings, get-togethers, parties, etc. Moroccan table lanterns are also a similar version of the latter, which is perfect for patio or dinner tables to accentuate the décor of its surroundings.
Where can you use them?
Moroccan candle lanterns impart a romantic aura to your bedroom – position them properly so they are not near curtains, bedding, fan or air conditioner. Moroccan jar lanterns are also a good alternative for bedside lamps with intricately patterned jars housing the light source inside – they are handmade, so each design is unique.
For dining room decorating and lighting, you should opt for a sturdier type such as a brass Moroccan lantern that provides clear and powerful light throughout the room. If you want a tougher style, go for a Moroccan iron glass lantern, fused with two of the strongest elements. These are durable and long-lasting – some are polished using antiquated finish for a vintage look.
Ever seen a Moroccan star lantern? It features the Moroccan Moravian star and is made with stained glass having different shades and tints. The light emitted is deeply colored with a warm glow over other accents in the room, thus enhancing visual appeal.
Patio & Outdoors
While metal lamps can be used for moroccan outdoor decorating purposes as well, you can try out Moroccan paper lanterns that are exquisitely carved by skilled artisans – the intricate detailing reflects the superior workmanship of these lanterns.
Make sure you choose the size of the Moroccan lantern very carefully – if it is too large it tends to overshadow every piece of décor, while a smaller size (than what you need) will prove to be insufficient in terms of lighting.
