Moroccan style in the interior is a completely unique symbiosis of Arabic motifs with characteristic elements of the culture of other ethnic groups. Its indispensable feature is specific lighting, which, for the most part, sets the mysterious alluring atmosphere of the east. The elements of lighting, due to which this effect is achieved all over the world, are known as “Moroccan lanterns”.
Moroccan lanterns are wrought lamps, the walls of which are decorated with twisted brass ornaments or glass painted with henna, often colored. These Moroccan lamps are designed to be installed candles in them, although at present there are many stylizations made industrially and adapted to the emission of electric light.
Often a metal ring is welded to the lamp, allowing it to be hung on the ceiling, wall or special pole on the stand. They are recognized pride in the Moroccan bazaars, as they are made exclusively by hand by hereditary craftsmen in Medina and Marrakesh. Such lamps can also have a hammered base and be covered with camel skin. They amaze with their capriciousness and variety of forms and design. There are round, conical, pyramidal, arc-shaped or even figured, repeating silhouettes of animals and birds with their outlines.
Moroccan lamps are distinguished from any other light sources by their special, soft diffused luminescence and the refraction of rays enclosed in a sheath of original design and delightful color combinations. The use of such decorative light sources completely changes the space and advantageously transforms it, provided that the light sources are correctly positioned.

Lanterns and chandeliers in Moroccan style
The interior in the Moroccan style is a holiday. And it is not at all necessary that it should be all of the rainbow colors. Even if your apartment is decorated in soothing pastel colors, Moroccan patterns, curves and fabrics will add comfort to the tent and majesty from the palace. But you must understand that choosing such an interior, you place a great responsibility on yourself, because each individually selected object must be a work of man-made art. Nothing can be left without attention, love for details, and unnecessary lined mosaic. Everything should be a decoration. Everything should serve the comfort and pleasant stay of you and all your numerous guests in this room. This also applies to light. Every lampshade and lamp in Moroccan style should be special, decorated, colored, woven, with some special fabric and so on.
Add decor. This is the case when another brush hung on the lampshade will not become redundant, and another pattern will not make the design coarse.
Experiment with ornaments in the design. Moroccan style loves different colors and textures, you can hardly go too far.
Be eclectic. It should be understood that the Moroccan style has something in common with the rest of the eastern styles, so you can easily mix them with it.
Usage of realistic human and animal images in the Moroccan chandeliers is not welcomed. Your house may be full of stylizations, but you should not decorate objects of décor and lighting with portraits or sculptural elements.
Focus on central lighting. Moroccan style is very cozy and intimate, it is better to hang cozy lamps made of colored glass everywhere and put floor lamps with original weaving. The room will only benefit from this.
There are several types of lanterns. Oriental and Arabic style lanterns can be divided into the following types:
