Well hi there.

Are you curious about who we are?

We are Lantern Cozies and we create beautiful lanterns. Their shape is simple, almost minimal, leaving lots of room for creativity. Our lanterns are practical yet fanciful with designs inspired by nature, textiles, family traditions and ancient texts.

The cozies are made using classic North American wood species - maple, white oak and black walnut. Our finishing process does not contain any dyes, perfumes or additives.

We are very choosy. We hand select each piece of wood and take great care to ensure the walnut is a rich chocolate, the white oak has a consistency of grain, and  the maple is light and clear.  In our packing room we like to think of you.  When your parcel arrives in its artful, sturdy packaging we know you'll be excited to light it that evening or gift it as the case may be.

So light your lantern and sparkle your night.


Dale - Chief Lantern Designer

This is me. I came into the world a tom-boy, became a mathematician and moved on from there. From an early age I loved everything modular, practical, beautiful and easy to keep clean. And I mean from Habitat at Expo 67 to my kitchen dishes, to the jewellery I wear and my style of cooking. 

These days, aside from my lantern business, I run, I yoga and, like everyone else, I wander aimlessly though Ikea and waste time watching Netflix. If you want to see how the lanterns started read about the wedding here.

Meet Jim.
