Want to mix up your lighting design with something fresh and fun? Try a modern or contemporary lantern light fixture! If you love the look of a lantern bulb enclosed in a beautiful frame but feel like a traditional style lantern won’t fit with your cutting-edge design sensibilities, a contemporary lantern is a great alternative. Choose a stunning geometric style lantern, such as a diamond, sphere, prism, or cube shaped lantern with modern-looking candle base bulbs, available in Edison, tubular, and other styles. For a dazzling addition to a kitchen, entryway, dining room, or hallway, choose a modern lantern in a sleek metallic finish, such as gold, brass, or bronze.

Did you know that lanterns are a quick and easy way to bring together traditional and modern design sensibilities in a room? Check out our 5 Lantern Lighting Ideas & Design Tips for ideas and advice on how to bring this classic light fixture into the modern age.
