Winter’s about to set in, and if the design forecast is anything to go by, we’re in for stormy weather:?hurricane lamps are the trendiest household accessories on the market this season…?

Whether it’s an oil lamp or candlelight, a real flame can warm the soul. These stylish and atmospheric votive vessels are the perfect accessories for the’moody evening that lie ahead. One thing’s for sure is that you can’t beat this smart hurricane-lamp shape,’designed to withstand even the heaviest winds. The dome and curves of the glass chimney in the hurricane lamp have become iconic in lantern design and can be found often simply as an aesthetic feature or minimised in’modern interpretations.

Featured in the autumn-winter collections of many trendy brands like Bloomingville and a key inspiration for top international design studio such a Stelton, Menu and?Broberg & Ridderstr?le, these traditional accessories are well and truly experiencing a revival.
