Cordless Lamps in Event Design

Modern Lantern Cordless Lamps used in Event Design

When it comes to design, some of the more large scale projects designers take on are events. Extravagant table scapes, beautiful foliage, and detail after detail. But when it comes to event lighting, designers often find themselves hindered by factors such as table or outlet placement, venue restrictions, and countless others. Let me introduce you to Modern Lantern, your innovative cordless lighting solution.

Modern Lantern has created a line of beautiful, high end cordless lamps using patented technology that is different than anything you’ve seen before. The lamps are powered solely by a 12V lithium-ion battery pack that is easily removed from the base and charged to provide approximately 18-40 hours of usage depending on which lamp, and setting used.

The flexibility these cordless lamps provide allows for effortless lighting anywhere you choose!



Events in Bloom is a Houston, Texas based vendor for luxury floral, linens, and other event decor. They used our Mini Buffet cordless lamps with modified shades to elevate the table settings and add height to their stunning design. 



I personally had the opportunity to use Modern Lantern cordless lamps in my own wedding in September of 2021. We used Clove cordless table lamps to provide accent lighting for our 16 foot long grazing table, and even some mini lamps on the bars, and outdoor tables.



Perch Event Decor is a Dallas - Fort Worth, Texas based upscale, residential-style event decor furnishing company. They used our Mini Buffet cordless lamps in antique brass for their tablescapes in this gorgeous and colorful wedding design. 





Cosabella Kitchen is a private dining event space in Oklahoma City. They offer gourmet French and Italian cuisine, and host weddings, birthday parties, corporate events, as well as a cooking classes where you and your friends can learn how to craft some classic dishes! They have our Mini Art Deco cordless lamps in their event space, which are a perfect addition to their adorable Italian inspired table settings!



Winston Flowers Events is a Boston based floral and event design company that have used our Mini Art Deco cordless lamps in their fabulous party event designs!



Awards Shows

We recently were honored to have our lamps used at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in the table design by Penny Barr Events. Our Mini Art Deco cordless lamps illuminated the tables of stars such as Lady Gaga, Will Smith, Meryl Streep, Selena Gomez, and so many more! It’s safe to say we were starstruck watching the show this year and seeing our lamps shine at such a large scale, televised event.


We want to thank each of these designers for their immaculate use of our cordless lamps in each of their unique and remarkable event designs. Please check them out!

Trend Alert! Everyone is raving about one home lighting trend that you may have never thought of before- kitchen counter lamps.
