What Our Clients Say

We just built a new home and worked exclusively with Carolina Lanterns and Lighting. They were extremely helpful in making lighting suggestions pertaining to our budget and always friendly and willing to help. I would highly recommend them!

Holly, Homeowner

I’ve bought 17 lights from Carolina Lanterns and I love them! I am going to buy much more in the future.

John, Builder

Dear Pippa, First I want to thank you, you gave us professional and courteous service from the minute we walked in. I knew from the get go we did not need to go anywhere else. I really appreciated the sincerity in helping us get the right fixture.

Nancy and Cecil, Homeowners

Pippa! We just received our lighting and bulbs, and I just have to mention how polite your delivery man was. He was very pleasant and polite, and I thought as a company you should know that he is an asset to you! Thank you- we are so excited to transform our kitchen!

Jack and Judy, Homeowners

I ordered 11 lights and they are wonderful. They look great! I will definitely use your lights on future projects.

Mindee, Designer

We purchased these from Carolina Lanterns in early January. We are doing a total house renovation of a 40 year old home. We had other options here in New Orleans to buy new gas lanterns but decided to do Carolina Lanterns after talking with Pippa. Though we could not touch or feel them, her knowledge about the product and quality are what sold us over the phone to make the purchase.

Charleston Collection

BEST SELLER

Our lanterns are hand-made by USA-based coppersmiths. Available in three finishes – Natural Copper, Antique Bronze or Powder Coated Black – our lanterns come with single, two- or three-light candelabras. Choose from one of our popular styles, such as the Charleston Collection, or contact us for a custom design. All of our lanterns can be equipped to use electric, natural gas or liquid propane fuel.

Custom Designs

In certain cases, your aesthetic may require certain finishes, sizing, or other constraints. If this is the case while working with us, our team would be more than happy to help custom design a light fixture that perfectly meets your needs.
