The Foyer : Lanterns

Foyers are typically small rooms, but one way to make a big impact in the room is with a light fixture of WOW material. One of my very favorite fixtures for a foyer is a lantern. In fact, in my own foyer, I used the Corinthian Iron Lantern from Shades of Light with silicone tipped bulbs.

  1. What beautiful inspiration! I would KILL for a foyer with a ceiling high enough to hang a lantern... but alas.
    Thanks for sharing and have a great day! Jalon

  2. Artie I adore lanterns and there are so many choices available!

    I have the same issue as Jalon; a low entry ceiling.

  3. I love lanterns. I have a vintage one in my foyer (12-foot ceilings) that I love. You did a great job, on that chair, by the way. Congratulations.
