1. Lantern vs. Lantern

Bodi's lantern from Broste Copenhagen

Both lanterns and lanterns create a cozy and stylish light and are both characterized by the fact that there is an open flame in a glass container that protects it from the wind and prevents it from going out. In contrast to a lantern, a lantern also has a handle, which makes it particularly practical to transport and allows it to be hung up. There are special lantern and lantern versions for lighting with candles, oil or ethanol.

You can find the right candle for every lantern design in our product category Candles.

2. The optimal use of designer wind lights

Depending on the model, your decorative lantern can best come into its own in different places. You can use these rules as a guide:

  • The larger the lantern or lantern, the better it is suitable as a floor lantern.
  • If you want to hang your lantern outside, choose a model with a glass element encased in wood or metal. This protects the glass from breaking if something flies against it or if a wind movement hits it somewhere.
  • For use on the table, console or shelf, 3-piece arrangements are particularly beautiful. It is advisable to pay attention to differences in height in order to increase depth and three-dimensionality.

Viktoria furnishing expert Tips for advisors “Large, simple lanterns and lanterns are not only the perfect mood lights in connection with classic or LED candles. They can also be used to decorate them according to the season or to repurpose them - for example as a small greenhouse.” – Viktoria, furnishing expert

3. Lanterns and their materials

The glass container, which protects the flame and prevents it from going out, makes lanterns ideal for outdoors and in draughty indoor areas, such as in the vestibule, house entrance or in long corridors. The material for the designer lanterns that you can find at Connox is chosen so that it can be used both indoors and outdoors.

Lanterns and their materials

While glass is the most common material for lanterns, there are also many other exciting and diverse combinations and designs:

You can create a natural atmosphere with a lantern made of wood (1), such as bamboo or teak, in combination with glass. A lantern made entirely of glass (2) looks particularly elegant, while the glass combinations with ceramic (3), leather (4) and metal (5) ensure a modern look.
