Create a cosy atmosphere in your home with a Holmegaard lantern
Decorate your home with beautiful Holmegaard lanterns. Holmegaard is known for being a historic glassworks that produces both mouth-blown and machine-blown glass of the highest quality. That’s why all the lovely Holmegaard lanterns come in glass. The lanterns from Holmegaard look stunning in any interior design and come in different sizes and colours. Common to them all is that they are designed with a beautiful leather strap and the rest is made of glass, which gives them a particularly stylish and fragile look. In addition, they are all mouth-blown by Holmegaard’s glassblowers, which means that they are also completely unique and part of Holmegaard’s special mouth-blown products.
Mouth-blown and machine-blown glass
Holmegaard produces both mouth-blown and machine-blown glass using the latest and most advanced production methods. Whether it’s mouth-blown or machine-made glass, Holmegaard always represents high quality and elegant design. Each piece of mouth-blown glass is unique and handmade by the glassblower, who carefully blows the right amount of air through the narrow pipe. Air bubbles in the glass are therefore inevitable and are part of the charm of mouth-blown glass.
The mouth-blown glass lanterns from Holmegaard are recognised by the Nordic Ecolabel, which is found on all Holmegaard’s mouth-blown glass.
The story behind Holmegaard
Most people probably associate Holmegaard with being a glassworks, but few are aware that Holmegaard is based on a long and proud tradition of glass production that goes all the way back to 1825. Today Holmegaard is a Danish design icon and one of the most recognised names in Scandinavian craftsmanship traditions. And their heritage is more than a tale of quality craftsmanship through time. Holmegaard builds on the legacy of a remarkable woman who must be said to have been ahead of her time, Countess Henriette Danneskiold-Samsøe. The Countess founded a glassworks at Holmegaard marsh, as it was her late husband’s greatest dream to construct a glassworks there. But that's not the only thing that made her so remarkable. She also managed to turn it into an artistic and aesthetic world of design that is still relevant today – almost 200 years later. It’s quite a feat.
So you get much more than just a beautiful lantern from Holmegaard. You get the highest quality interior made of glass, which is mouth-blown and therefore also completely unique. You get a lantern that is part of Danish design at its best and which is guaranteed to decorate your home, terrace or balcony beautifully. And then you get a lantern based on a long and proud tradition that was established almost 200 years ago, and which survived despite the setbacks and norms for this time. So when you buy a lantern from Holmegaard, you also get a little slice of history.
A great way to use the lanterns is to add a large and a small lantern in your hallway, so that they greet your guests in with a cosy, stylish light.
