A zen and traditional atmosphere at home thanks to our Japanese lanterns.
Some lamps like the ball lamp are pretty home decorations. Hung from the ceiling or in your garden, they create an atmosphere of pure Japanese tradition. The Japanese red lamp is an ideal choice for outdoor ornaments. It is widespread in cities in Japan in front of shops and sake establishments. But it can also be placed in several rooms of the house. Their dim light sets up a zen and relaxed atmosphere .
Lanterns made according to pure Japanese tradition
Made of interlaced mulberry fibers, the washi paper (or rice paper ) that is used to make these lamps is solid while remaining flexible and thin enough to diffuse light. It is underpinned by a wooden, bamboo or metal frame. The light that passes through it can come from a candle or, more traditionally, a cotton wick with rapeseed or sardine oil as fuel. An opening allows the candle or fuel to be changed when it is exhausted.
Multiple choices of lanterns for different tastes and different uses
You have the choice between several types of lanterns of various shapes and uses. Andon type lamps appeared during the Edo period. The oki-andon has a boxed shape. It is portable but can also be hung on walls. There is another variety that is Enshu andon and that has a rather cylindrical shape. Ariake andon can be used as a bedside lamp or table lamp
The Bonbori lamp, a bit similar to the Andon, has a wider shape at the top, even oval . It can be hung, during festivals, on a cable or a mast.
Chochin is probably one of the most popular Japanese lamps. Its bamboo frame that is reminiscent of an accordion because of its spiral shape makes it easily foldable and allows it to be stored flat in small spaces. The chochin is usually hung on the facades, hung by a small hook on top. There are plastic chochin used by the Japanese in large gatherings.
