Handmade Antique Copper Gas & Electric Lanterns

Here at Flambeaux Lighting, we believe the purpose of a lighting fixture for your home or business is twofold.

First and foremost, a light fixture should, of course, be functional and softly illuminate areas around your home or workplace – such as your entry way, your outdoor patio, above your family’s dining table, or outside your office.

Secondly, and nearly almost as important (we think): We believe a light fixture should be a work of art.

It’s in this approach that we have found our passion, one that has driven our New Orleans-based company and our talented coppersmiths since 2004. We design and build beautiful, one-of-a-kind works of art: Handmade antique copper lanterns for your home or your business.
