Traditional Lantern Pendants
With the first lantern pendant dating back to the 19th Century with the introduction of public street lanterns in 1807, todays traditional style pendant lights are still honouring the designs of the past. Cast from brass, zinc or iron, the decorative frames are finished with a black coating or left in their raw form. Featuring glass panes that imitate Victorian gas lamps or elegant bowls that replicate Georgian oil lamps, these time-honoured shapes are perfect for those wanting to compliment original features of a historical property. Popular to feature both inside and outside the house, the clusters of candle-like bulbs create a warm and ambient light that beautifully illuminates your home.
Modern Lantern Pendants
If you are looking for a more contemporary look then there are lots of modern lantern pendants to choose from. Featuring both clear and semi-opaque glass panels, they are more angular in shape and feature clean lines with minimal decoration. The metal work is often polished with popular finishes including chrome, silver and gold. These lustrous finishes help to bounce the light around the room for a brighter illumination.
