Not only does June bring warmer weather and the early days of summer, but it also marks the beginning of hurricane season. While I am referring to the weather, it is also most definitely time for hurricane lamp season. Perfect for outdoor entertaining, adding that extra touch you need for your table at a garden party, there are many different shapes and styles of hurricane lamps and lanterns.
Typically, a hurricane lamp contains a tall, cylindrical barrel-shaped glass, which is sometimes topped with a dome. This shape served the original purpose of blocking high winds so the flame inside would not go out. In current times, however, these lamps serve to be more decorative than functional.
Shown above are a variety of styles of hurricane lamps available through the Kellogg Collection. These lamps can stand alone, or as a pair or even as a collection.
A great feature in adding these decorative gems to your home is that they look spectacular displayed both in and outdoors. Place hurricanes on a fireplace mantle, an end table, a coffee table, or as a centerpiece on your dining room table. The options are endless!
Not all hurricanes are built alike; some are made from wood. Some designs are inspired by the arts and crafts movement, while others have Asian pagoda flair.
Be sure to stop in The Kellogg Collection, pick up your favorite styles, and get yourself ready for a great entertaining season! Don’t forget your batteries and emergency supplies for those other hurricanes!
