Moroccan Lights

Updated on July 29, 2014

Add Moroccan Style and Set the Mood with these Beautiful Lantern Lights

Traditional Moroccan lights are brought right up to date in these stunning lanterns. Typically, they feature fretted, pierced metalwork with colored and textured glass panels that provide subdued and romantic light.

Use these ornate lanterns to create just the mood you want. They can be used in living rooms and hallways, dining rooms for romantic dinners, for suspended lighting over kitchen islands, or even in the bedroom for a romantic tryst. They're also perfect for using outside -- on patios and in gardens and along walkways -- as the lantern sides will protect the candle from blowing out.

I've chosen a variety of lanterns, some for hanging, some for tabletops and some floor-standing models, all in a variety of colors and metallic finishes, so there are plenty to choose from.

      Love them. I have a large (almost 2 foot high) Moroccan lantern, black finish, with a battery operated candle and when not in use on the deck I keep it right beside the fireplace. It would be fun to get some of the colored glass ones also for the deck.
