Carolina Lanterns & Lighting

The Original Charleston Lantern

Welcome to Carolina Lanterns

Choosing a lantern is not as simple as choosing a table lamp. It requires a lot of thought and knowledge. Carolina Lanterns specializes in custom-made copper and brass lanterns and lamps that use propane, natural gas, or electricity and evoke the elegance of historic Charleston in any home around the world.

Owner / "Lantern Lady"

As the president of Carolina Lanterns and the self-proclaimed “Lantern Lady”, Jan has transformed her “light bulb gas lantern moment” into one of the area’s fastest growing lighting and accessory firms.

“Clouse considers herself a consultant rather than a mere retailer. ‘Customers come here, see what we have on display and we work with them in choosing the right lantern for them,’ says Clouse. ‘We’ll bring lanterns to a customer’s home so they can see how the lanterns will look. That’s what we do best. You have to follow through for the customer,’ she advises. ‘And if you show enthusiasm for your product, that enthusiasm will spread to the customer.’ “ Read More

Lighting is one of the most important elements of your home’s design. It serves many functions, such as providing safety, assisting in performing household tasks, creating an atmosphere for entertaining, and pulling together the overall design a homeowner is trying to achieve. Above all else, lighting is beautiful, and great lighting will bring your house to life.

Jamey, I wanted to let you know that last week we received a completely new light fixture from Capital Lighting.  We are very appreciative of your efforts along with Patricia and Jonathan. This is what I call first class service. We will certainly remember this service when we purchase additional light fixtures. Linda loves to shop in your store and Michael said you were a great guy and your assistance and service attests to it. Thanks again for all your help and especially the outstanding service.
