Vintage to contemporary, illuminate your exteriors á la lanterne
(page 2 of 2)
A modern take on the traditional English foursquare hall lantern, Remains Lighting’s Heron offers a sharply detailed rectangular silhouette. Glazed with clear, fluted glass the light is crafted from solid brass and available in an array of finishes. For a more country look, the Mercer Lantern is inspired by stable windows seen in the Pennsylvania countryside. Clean-expressed joinery made of solid brass completes the look, available in a range of sizes and finishes.

Visual Comfort’s E.F. Chapman collection (named after its designer, a lighting industry legend) offers antique appeal and revolutionary durability. The Kensington 4-Light Hanging Lantern shines with a bronze wax finish, while the Marine Exterior Wall Lantern wears hand-rubbed antique brass. Both offer a living finish that patinas gracefully over time.
