Decorating the home with Moroccan lanterns does not have to be as expensive as it may sound. This is probably one of the very first things that come to mind when anything Moroccan-inspired enters your mind. Even the thought of acquiring these lanterns and lamps and pieces of furniture from a Moroccan store will want you to stir away from it because you think that it will cost your wallet that much. As people would have it, the more costly and expensive the materials you use, the longer it will last. While it may be true that decorating your home with artistically handcrafted and hand-cut lanterns and lamps may be expensive, you are assured that they are of top class quality and that they can stand the test of time. With each colored and clear glass panels that your lantern is made, you get what your money is worth.
Not every detail of Moroccan furniture or lanterns has to be made from original materials as you can always purchase pieces that have been made from recycled materials. You need to stretch your resourcefulness when looking for shops that provide North African-inspired pieces of lanterns and lamps. Some Moroccan lanterns are made from recycled materials such as scrap metals and wrought iron. They may have come from used materials but they are still sturdy and useful. They also vary in sizes, shapes and forms which may be used as walkway illuminator or centerpiece on a table inside the living room or on a corner of your patio. Play with colors and decorate your home using these carefully crafted lanterns of red, blue, yellow and clear panels.
Fluorescent lights and bulbs can be found in almost all modern homes of today and only few opt for the more classical yet artistic style using Moroccan lamps. You do not have to completely do away with these artificial light providers as you can always fuse both worlds together. Your home will become one of its own and cannot be compared to any other when you allow the meeting of the modern world and the ancient artisan creativity of the Moorish-inspired chandeliers and lamps. The old-fashioned chandeliers you place in the center of the living room can replace the modern-style fluorescent lights. Chandeliers may also vary in shapes and sizes and they do not have to be really huge to produce the desired lighting effect. The ambiance and mood of your private living room can also be set with the use of lamps placed on a bedside table or attached the walls with its lights bouncing off to light up the entire space.
The artisans that come from this Arabian region have perfected the making of each Moroccan lantern and lamp and they have mastered the skills needed to turn a piece of metal to a lovely masterpiece. You can see how much craft and artistry is devoted by the artist in creating a piece of lantern or lamp with the minutest detail that it carries. An Imperial Alkazar-carved style lantern creates a three-dimensional feel which will be adorable when used outside on the patio and or in the indoors. Although it may be similar to an Imperial Alkazar- laced style lantern, this piece has a unique style of its own. It has a classic ‘marabout’ shape which has been securely drilled into the wrought iron and dome panels. It produces an overall ‘lacey’ effect on the nearby wall. Whichever piece of Moroccan lanterns or lamps you decide on to beautify your home, your ultimate goal should be that of providing sufficient light to illuminate your home today.
