Here you will find a large selection of Japanese lanterns in many designs and sizes.

We also offer some lanterns with a small solar light incorporated into the top. These lights collect energy during the day and then illuminate at night and can be used to highlight areas of the garden or indicate pathways. Note that these lights are low energy and will not replace wired-in lighting.

Stone lanterns were developed in 16th century Japan as a method of lighting garden paths leading to tearooms. Traditional tea ceremonies were often held in the evening. Guests would be expected to attain a certain level of mental refinement before reaching the tearooms, aided by strolling through a peaceful inner garden. Every element of the tea ceremony was designed to discourage distraction and promote inner harmony.

American Colonial Lamp Short and Tall, stained concrete lantern for outdoor garden or patio

American Colonial Lamp – Short

In this series of benches, birdbaths, fountains, planters, pedestals and lamp, seasoned designer & sculptor Klaus Kinast has attempted to capture the design essence of the American Colonial period. This term generally refers to that period of U.S. history from the time of European settlement (the late 16th c.) up to independence in 1776, with particular emphasis on the Thirteen Colonies of Britain. The design of this period was predominately that of the European states from where the settlers came from, but was influenced by the simpler lives that these people lived. Gone was the heavy emphasis on ostentatious decoration, instead being replaced by a simpler, less cluttered and easier style. Great use was made of local woods in furniture design and quilting and fabric became important decoration.  Motifs were generally simple in the form of natural flowers & fruit. As the style developed, higher grade furniture was introduced along with decorative accessories and fabrics.
