This summer, we are offering a special promotion on our outdoor lanterns. You can dress up your covered porches and outdoor rooms with one of these lantern designs, even get an upgrade with outdoor wiring and finishing for no additional charge. All lanterns can also be made with picks to accommodate candles. In my humble opinion, this is a really good deal. Our summer offer applies to orders on standard sizes placed within the months of June, July and August. You can order Mansard Tole Lanterns (as shown below), Mizner Lanterns, Venetian Lanterns, Gothic Lanterns, Foliate Lanterns, Voliere Lanterns, and Zinc Lanterns.
As beautiful as this composition is, you still need a closer look at our Mansard Lantern, shown below in its normal Cupric Green finish. The top is amply vented if you want to use candles instead of electric lights.
That’s how it looked with fat candles in this outtake from a 2004 Garden Design story on my home. Today I’d just pop in LED candles and never light a match, or worry about putting out the flame.
We just made a Mansard this spring in a large custom size of 28 sq by 44” h and finished in Gilt Rust.
Moving on to the Mizner Lantern, we originally designed it to go into a rehabbed home in Palm Beach created by Addison Mizner, the archetypal architect of that resort community. We created a new finish, Palementa, to echo the shimmering seas.
It caught on there, and here you see it in Washington Spaces story on a 2009 showhouse. The designer Draza Stamenich (www.drazastamenich.com) created this serene laundry room illuminated by our Mizner and papered with Gracie wallcovering. This gracious space is not your normal laundry room at all, but I might better enjoy drudgery here. Notice I don’t show you how crummy my own laundry room looks.
Atlanta designer Liz Williams hung it in the midst of a Christmas scene she created for a 2008 Atlanta Showhouse. She also used our St. Cloud Dining Table and put fun slipcovers on our Regence Dining Chairs, to create a cool, serene look.
We’ve made the Mizners teeny, as this one.
And big too.
For a market that Architectural Digest sponsored in June 2012 for consumers with major buying power, we created this display featuring our Mizner hanging above our newest outdoor chair, the Melbourne. We loved it that AD picked our Melbourne Chair to feature to these consumers. May they love it as a chair and as a chaise longue. We’ll be happy to make any and all line extensions.
Which one is standard?
The hallmark of Niermann Weeks is pure silhouette. Never hidden behind extraneous decoration or crystals, this Venetian lantern casts beautiful shadows reflecting the shape of itself.
Speaking of the magic of light and shadows, this Gothic lantern gives us a surprise by bringing the various shadows with its simple and clear lines. Sweet dreams must be brought to you with these shadow flowers blooming on your porch.
The Palissy lantern is an excellent piece for both indoors and outdoors. NW has U. L. license for inside use and outside damp use (must be covered by a roof). Foreign U. L.s is also available.
Our DC showroom is highlighted by the elegant and shining Palissy.
How does it manage to bring such interesting light effect? Take a closer look at this being-made Palissy – candles inside and out secretly echo with one another. They make light fun.
It can be huge, too.
Palissy is not yet the only fun piece. Inspired by a birdcage, the Voliere lantern adds into the room just enough playfulness to give you a good mood.
Going with a cheerful red, it pops out with its unique shape and creates a fun environment.
Baby and standard Volieres.
