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?

Bedroom

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.

Dining Room

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.eclectic-dining-room

Living Room

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.
