The outdoor lantern need not always be hung from the pergola structure or a giant tree and they make an equally big impact when simply placed on the ground in a careful and curated fashion.
Even a quiet reading space will benefit from some neon lighting but perhaps – if aiming for a serene environment – opt for the lights of more subtle color and a neutral shape. Perfect for daydreaming when your head’s in the clouds only a little neon light hanging above you will suffice.
