Kirkman BlizzardDiscover the lanterns that offer a variety of styles for decorating and lighting a log home.

We love the look of lanterns in log homes. While the word lantern might be associated with something woodsy, we found styles that run the gamut — from campfire to Eastern-influenced. We see them hanging as pendants and chandeliers, or simply sitting on an end table providing chair-side lighting. Some even burn oil, for a truly authentic and energy-efficient touch, and they are a fun option for lighting your log home.

Campfire Glow

W.T. Kirkman’s Blizzard Cold Blast Lantern in blazing red comes as an oil Fire Mountain Forge Gold Rushor battery-charged lamp. We love the dedication to true campfire style, including the metal handle to carry around with you in the dark.

Party Time

The only thing better than a lantern in a log home is five multi-colored lanterns. W.T. Kirkman’s Party Lantern Set (they use oil) is a fun way to set the mood whether there’s a crowd to entertain or not.

Asian Inspired

Kirkman Party SetJust because log homes are distinctly Western in culture does not mean we can’t mix the influences of our Eastern brethren. The Kyoto Pendant from Cherry Tree Design is a nod to the Orient, but it’s made from American hardwoods.
