World's Most Beautiful Indoor/Outdoor Lanterns?

Issue 87 · Into the Wild · August 30, 2013

A reader chided us recently for describing something as "world's best"; but really, aren't these the most beautiful Japanese lanterns you've ever seen? Plus, they're powered by LED lights, so you can move them around (on the table for dinner, as a reading light in the bedroom, outdoors as dusk approaches). 

The lanterns are made in Japan of traditional washi paper with a wood base and a wire handle and are available from New Zealand stylist Katie Lockhart's Everyday Needs online shop.
