Key placements

Smaller lanterns are the most versatile, since they can fit alongside almost anything. They make a great shelf filler or table centrepiece. When styling bigger lanterns, remember they work best to frame the room. Try placing them on the floor near the wall or beside large pieces of furniture, e.g. a fireplace or sofa end. We also love to style a mixture of lanterns all together in a group of three or four. A great way to position a group of lanterns is to line them up in ascending heights or in a triangular formation with the smallest at the front.
