    What’s with the buzz around a lantern? Aren’t they old-fashioned? Well they might seem so but it would never do you bad to have one of these in your place, right? Not just for when you have to go to the dark forest (high five to Harry Potter fans), lanterns work wonders as home decor with the artsy bright aesthetic they lend to your space. They are also useful when you want to give your place an Arabian Nights feel or when the power just goes off. Lanterns come in cool prints and materials and are also budget-friendly, made perfectly the way you want them. However, you don’t get the most beautiful, utilitarian and easy to use lanterns everywhere! Only on LBB.

    This cane lantern from Green Collective is boho and can be used as a decor piece for an intimate gathering or a date night with bae. As this is made from rattan, it has a rustic feel to it and as the light of the candle hits the barricaded edges, the reflected texture looks stunning. The lantern comes with a glass votive within which you can light when you want to use this. Cleaning this might get tough as the cane portion has to be kept dry at all times. A brush might help. However, the glass votive can be cleaned with detergent and water.
