Moroccan Lamps

Colorful Moroccan lamps are made of forged metal, iron, dark wood or leather. These are suspended from the ceiling using thick ropes, chains or stringed beads. Lamps make any room look more colorful, dramatic and very sophisticated.

There are electric Moroccan lamps and there are candlelit too. Whichever you choose will absolutely make your room more aesthetic, spectacular, and stylish.

Enchanting brass lamps are very popular in Moroccan home decor. These lamps are more than just ornaments, they are also investments.

A lot of Moroccan brass lamps are worth a small fortune. If you happen to spot one at a bargain price be sure to take advantage since they are definitely worth a lot. Have an appraiser help you buy authentic pieces.

Authentic Moroccan tapestries are perfect in creating a truly genuine Moroccan feel. Hang your tapestries along a main wall, drape a center table with one or spread it across a simple sofa. Some thick pieces can be used as rugs but don’t forget to take care of them since they aren’t really meant to be walked on.

  1. These are some great examples of how Moroccan lamps can make a room look more warm and inviting. I like the sound of electric lit lanterns better as far as practicality goes. However, I think it would be nice to have some candle lit lanterns as well for those more relaxed evenings.

  2. The thing that I love about Moroccan candle holders is that they are seen as very romantic.

    You don’t even have to explain that to anybody. Just spark up a tea light within a lantern and let the mood get set for you 🙂

    Works wonders for me!
