The stunning Gerda Hurricane Lantern will add a touch of classic Scandinavian style to any home. Perfect for introducing a little bit of the hugely popular "hygge" trend into your home, the lantern will add a warm and cosy glow when holding any suitable lit candle. Hygge is a Danish word without a direct English translation, but it means something similar to cosiness, or feelings of goodwill and contentedness. It's been a big deal in the UK in recent years, with countless homeowners embracing pared back Scandi style and surrounding themselves with stylish home decor items and anything that increases the warm atmosphere of their home.
Candles and lanterns are a great way to ramp up the cosy factor of any room, and the Gerda looks just as good without a candle as it does with one.
The medium sized Gerda Hurricane Lantern can be placed on a coffee table as a standalone piece, on a shelf or sideboard to add a cosy glow in an otherwise dark corner, or how about grouped together with a selection of other lanterns in a fireplace? The possibilities are endless and the simple rustic style of the Gerda means it will fit into any surroundings seamlessly. The rustic lantern looks just as at home in a modern, minimalist penthouse apartment as it does in a traditional cosy cottage. Wood and glass are two of the materials that simply never got out of fashion and look great in just about any style of home.
You can even use the Gerda Hurricane Lantern outdoors to enhance the ambiance of a garden party or barbecue. The simple birch base means it looks perfect in any garden environment, just make sure you bring it back indoors when your party is over.
The Gerda Hurricane Lantern is ideal for year-round use. It is especially suited to the Christmas season and would be a perfect complement for a rustic or Scandinavian themed Christmas celebration. The clear glass of the lantern allows you to experience the full glow of the lit candle placed inside it.
The Gerda is manufactured from natural birch wood, giving it a traditional rustic appearance. Scandinavian inspired decor has always been popular in the UK, but has enjoyed more attention than ever in recent years. The traditional and famous Scandi aesthetic involves wooden floors, white or neutral walls and stylish furniture and decor. The Gerda fits in perfectly with this aesthetic, thanks to its simple, rustic natural wooden base and clean glass lantern.
The medium sized lantern measures 35cm in height, making it suitable for a variety of candle sizes. Add a simple tealight for a subtle glow, or a larger, pillar style candle for a more traditional hurricane lantern appearance.
