Since I've been on a quest to find the perfect lantern pendants for my kitchen, I thought it would be fun to put together a collection of some of the best on the web. I love that lanterns — although often thought of as traditional — can work well in almost any decor.
I'm a fan of the lantern pendant for its open, casual style and the statement it can make in a room, especially when painted in a fun color. As this ideabook proves, there's a lantern perfect for every style and every budget. — Emily from Emily A. Clarke
I like this more modern version of a lantern pendant. Plus, the shade is a nice feature when you want to diffuse the glare that sometimes comes along with open styles. This pendant's sleek style would work well in a more minimalist space.
This one is geometric, funky and fabulous! I love the pattern on this lantern, and I bet the reflections on the walls at night are pretty cool. I would use this as the centerpiece of a modern bedroom as the "wow factor."
The shape of this lantern makes it perfect for hanging over a kitchen island or rectangular dining table. I like that it's casual enough for informal spaces. I also think it would be pretty fantastic painted!
