A Matter of Style: Lanterns

Beacon Post Mount Lantern

Decorating the exterior of your home is not just about style – it’s about functionality and durability. When attaching something to your home or securing a post to your yard you want to make sure it is both aesthetically pleasing and something that will last through winds of summer and snow of winter.

When it comes to outdoor lighting style and quality are key elements in making a decision. Luckily all of Walpole Outdoors’ products are made to the highest quality so all you have to do is select the perfect style for your home.

As the days get shorter outdoor lighting is going to be something that is more and more necessary. There is no better time than now to find and install a brand new outdoor lighting unit.

Walpole Outdoors boasts a great selection of copper, bronze, and brass lanterns that appeal to traditional, historic, and contemporary styles. Styles and materials come in a variety of post mount, side mount, and hanging options in a selection of heights and widths.


Traditional style lanterns are immediately recognizable with their burnished brass lines and simple shape. Walpole’s traditional options are many and include post mount, side mount, and hanging pieces.

The Beacon Post Mount Lantern is a classic look – one you see when you look at paintings, illustrations, or photos of classic American homes. Looking for a traditional side mount lantern? The Whitney Side Mount is perfect with its solid brass and copper construction; a perfect lantern to mount right next to your front door.

Seafarer Hanging Lantern


Historical style lanterns are beautifully weathered. This Windsor Post Light is constructed from copper in the style of Lt. Moses Willard. Another great historical look is the Seafarer Hanging Lantern. This bronze piece looks like it once belonged to a lighthouse keeper on Cape Cod.


Sanibel Side Mount

If you want a more modern look you can find it in this copper New Orleans Post Mount. Unlike other pieces made from copper this lantern uses that shiny copper tone for a more modern aesthetic. Another variation of that sleekness is the Sanibel Side Mount. This piece, made from steel, also utilizes the clean shine of the metal making it look new and modern.

Whatever you choose you can’t go wrong with a Walpole lantern. If you choose to go with a post mount lantern have a look at our selection of lantern posts for the best choice for your home.
