7 Ways In Which Moroccan Lamps Shine From Above

Sep 12, 2008
Moroccan lamps come in an endless array of shapes and sizes and are made to adorn tables, floors, walls and ceilings. By far the most impressive lighting is those that hang either above or at eye-level.

The nature of Moroccan chandelier and sconce design insists on attention and inspires awe in all those who witness its creative ambience. The reasons for the rapidly growing popularity of Moroccan home decor are obvious to fans of color and design. Walking into a room lit up with overhanging Moroccan lamps is an enchanting experience in itself; it is almost like walking into a magical land full of mystery and lore.

Moroccan Lamps: Ceiling and Wall Lighting

1.Moroccan chandeliers made mostly of clear glass are usually rectangular in shape. These put a person in mind of the typical old-fashioned lantern but with a unique Mediterranean twist.

2.Hand punched iron or brass with stained glass inlays cast silhouettes of flowers and geometrical shapes on walls and ceilings. Reds, yellows and oranges of different hues cast a light that is at once subtle and romantic. During the day when lights are unnecessary, the stylish antique look of the metal chandeliers evokes appreciative interest. The metal may be exposed in all its natural glory or sometimes it is painted for an extra decorative flair.

3.Iron framed Moroccan chandeliers covered with goatskin and painted with henna make for a subtle lighting that casts a cozy, romantic glow around the area. Of particular interest are those handcrafted in the Berber style with decorative symbols and motifs painted on the skin, resembling ancient tattoos.

4.Not to be forgotten, are the Moroccan stars that come in a variety of colors and a varying number of points. They hang from ceilings either alone or in groups at varying heights and shine like the stars in the night sky. These lamps illuminate dark rooms with patterns of colored light.

5.Moroccan wall sconces are made with metals, glass and skins as well. These wall sconces are smaller Moroccan lamps of colorful design and shape. Assorted shapes include cones, triangles, circles, half-circles and more. Some modern Moroccan wall sconces are fashioned with painted resins.

6.When decorating with wall sconces from Morocco, your first consideration must be in how elaborate you want to take your decor. A wall covered in Moroccan sconces is charming to some but is too over the top for others. Simpler tastes are satisfied with a pair of sconces placed on both sides of a mirror.

7.While Moroccan lanterns are often placed on floors, tabletops and wall or corner shelves, they may also be hung on walls and ceilings. These Moroccan lamps are also mobile and can be hung on hooks and carried from place to place to provide unique lighting for a nighttime walk or journey through a dark house. Of course, hooks are not the only option for using lanterns in upper areas. Moroccan lanterns are a perfect fit for high corners and wall shelves.

When decorating with elaborately designed Moroccan lamps place in overhead areas, keep the decor below them simple. Overhead lighting enhances the ethnic design of furnishings and decor. When you desire quality and aesthetics in your home lighting, there is nothing more distinctive and attractive than Moroccan lamps.
