The latest candle lanterns – striking designs you’ll love

The latest candle lanterns – striking designs you’ll love

July 15, 2016 0 By Nordic House

As you’ll know if you’ve been a fan of Nordic House for a while, we’re celebrated for our striking collection of lanterns, and we’re very proud to have been one of the first companies to have brought this classic Scandi design to popular appeal in the UK. Over the years, we’ve been thrilled to send our lanterns to luxury hotels, celebrities and televisions studios alike – among many other places! Our most popular lanterns are undoubtedly our classic big stainless steel beauties, but these are just the tip of the iceberg…

If you’ve ever been lucky enough to visit beautiful Scandinavia, you’ll no doubt remember the fact that candlelight and lanterns are used everywhere! Even the smallest, most modest dwelling will have a lantern standing outside it to welcome visitors, and the daily lighting of candles is a significant cultural ritual.

So when you’re looking for striking and original lantern designs, there’s of course no need to look any further than Scandinavia! We’re constantly wowed by the wonderful and innovative new shapes and materials that the Scandis produce, and of course, we just love bringing these back to share with you! As it’s been a while since I did a post on our most popular product, I thought today I’d share with you some of our newest designs, and give you a little bit of the story behind each one. If you’re stuck trying to find the perfect present for that ‘difficult’ person in your life, may I please suggest you treat them to a lantern or a hurricane lamp? I have yet to discover anyone who doesn’t instantly fall in love with theirs when they receive them. And flickering, orange-hued candlelight never fails to relax and unwind us.

On that note, put your feet up, pour yourself a glass of something lovely, light a candle and we’ll begin…


Our stylish lantern has more than a hint of marine style thanks to the natural rope detailing. A solid glass inner hurricane protects the flame, while the rope design casts magical candlelight around, in true coastal style.


Sleek, stylish and sophisticated! This uber-chic Danish minimalist teak lantern with its straight lines makes an immediate impact. The simple leather handle adds a contemporary touch, as well as making the lantern easy to transport.


Refined glassware meets natural wood in this classic minimalist hurricane lamp, which stands tall enough to make a real Scandi style statement. Its simple lines and warm natural tones are enhanced by the flickering of the candle within, making a fabulous centrepiece on a dining table or a stylish statement in a living space.


The perfect Scandi home accent and oh so cute too! Our mini hurricane comes with a sleek faux leather sleeve, combining the beauty of vintage style with modern design.


Some products we come across when travelling around Scandinavia are a simple must-have – this is one of them! Hand-crafted from reclaimed teak and finished with beautiful hand-stitched leather detailing, this product works as a tealight as well as a candle holder! Simply turn it over for whichever use you fancy.


Simply styled and absolutely stunning, these lanterns are perfect for lighting your home throughout the year. We think that the mix of glass and faux leather and the gentle curve of the glass make an irresistible combination.


Less is most definitely more when it comes to this brass wall hurricane. The lines may be simple but the style is highly sophisticated. Equally appealing is the mirrored back – the combination of brass and mirrored glass will shimmer beautifully in the light of the flame.


Trendy industrial style zinc candle lantern with heaps of Scandi charm! These fabulous Danish zinc lanterns are set to become a firm favourite, and can be used outdoors as well as inside – making them perfect for this time of year!


We bet you haven’t seen anything quite like this before… Our strikingly tall, handsome reclaimed wood hurricane is lovingly hand-made from reclaimed/salvaged wood and truly a work of art. The hand-blown glass has a beautiful clarity and the zinc trim compliments both wood and glass alike. Try floating a large candle in one for real impact!


These antique smoke glass hurricanes are perfect for adding some soft lighting to your home. Choose from two sizes, and combine them together as you like – the effect will be magical as the mercury-gold surfaces bounce the candlelight back and forth.

Which one is your favourite? I’d love to know! We’re constantly adding to our candle lantern collection, so do keep visiting the shop if you’d like to add to yours too! We’re sure you’ll find something that’s just perfect for you.

As for us, it’s been a busy few weeks at Nordic House as we will shortly be relocating our HQ to new offices – we’re very excited about it and the future! And as we move onto the next stage in our journey, we’d like to thank all our wonderful customers for their support over the years and for getting us this far – we couldn’t have done it without you!

Till next time,
