oversized lantern lighting / sfgirlbybay

i’ve still got a mad crush on oversized lighting, and the glow of lanterns in particular. i love a beautiful naguchi lantern or a herman miller bubble lamp (like the one in my bedroom, above). but should you be looking for some similar affordable lighting options that make a huge impact you might just consider the paper lantern, and in my opinion the bigger the better! the japanese-inspired paper lantern has been around forever and can really light up a room in more ways than just their lovely, luminous glow and i found the one in my home office at bunkado in l.a.’s little toyko (they’re online, too). if you take a look at many of these rooms, you’ll see how dramatic their look is, and at a relatively low investment. these origami-inspired lanterns, for instance, are under twenty bucks! add this Gold Electrical Cord Swag Kit (also under $20) and you’ve got a pretty dynamic look for very little money. paper table lamps are in abundance online as well.
