Did you know that not only models in magazines are air brushed, but so are products! Have you ever noticed a gorgeous lamp in a magazine on a fireplace mantle or in the middle of a room and there is no cord? Well, those are not real… they remove the cords in Photoshop so the photo looks perfect.

I’m so excited to tell you about a brand new product by Modern Lantern, a company owned by my real life friends right here in Texas, Stephen and Carrie Fitzwater! They are making beautiful cordless lamps where NO Photoshop editing or floor electric outlets are needed.

Really, this is one of those ideas where you think… why has it taken so long for someone to think of this?!?

Stephen and Carrie came over to my house and brought me this beauty called “Hive”. I’m in love and ready to buy their entire line!

I took my Hive all over my house and still can’t decide where she will stay.

Maybe my coffee table?

Oh, I like it on my deck!

FYI- These are not official outdoor lamps, but you can take them outside during parties. You will need to bring them inside overnight.

Carrie, an interior designer, came up with this idea to fill a void in the home industry. Her clients would show her magazines with photos of lamps on a mantle or in the middle of the room and say “I want that.” Little did they know, the cords in the magazine photos were all edited away in Photoshop!

They have many beautiful designs to choose from and YOU can win one this week!

  3. Hi Amy,
    I tried the url that you provided to me, and I still was unable to access the Facebook page for Modern Lantern. When I click on your link to enter the contest I get the following response: “This page can’t be seen by the current user. Please check page privacy and visibility settings.” Not sure what I’m doing wrong. When I do a Facebook search for the Modern Lantern, nothing comes up for me except their website! Very strange. Thanks for the opportunity to win this lamp!

  4. What a fantastic idea, and what gorgeous lamps! Now that hurricane season is here, I’d love to have this available. Hurrican Frances left us without power for 5 days and the nights are awful when that happens.

  5. This is an amazing product!!!! I agree, why didn’t we think of this sooner. Thanks Amy!!

  6. Ohhhh, what a wonderful giveaway opportunity! I love the idea of no cords and lighting!
    Interestigly, as we recently remodeled our homeschool room for our four kiddos, my dh was lamenting, “Now how do we hide the cords from the lamps that you see under their desks?” How awesome it would be to win a cordless lamp!
    Thank you for your wonderful website. I so enjoy reading through it and gleaning ideas often.
    Hugs and blessings,

  7. Oh, what a wonderful giveaway, and a great idea…a cordless lamp! As we remodled our four children’s homeschool school room, My dh was just lamenting, “Now how do we hide the cords to the lamps on their new desks?” How awesome would it be to win a cordless lamp? Wonderful! 🙂

  10. I love the Pyrus! I live in a 300 year old house and there are not a lot of outlets – these lamps solve A LOT of my issues!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  11. @Amy, Hi Amy…I did enter here, but when trying to ‘like’ the Modern Lantern fb page, there isn’t one coming up?

  12. Love these so much! Have the perfect place for one of them in my livingroom, end of love seats, middle of floor = no outlet 😉 Will purchases be available for shipping to Canada?

    **Also, could not find the Modern Lantern facebook page, as another commentor mentioned.

  13. Wow!! I really need some of these. I love the graphite one–would go perfectly in my newly remodeled bedroom. And there are places around the house that I would like to have a lamp but there is no electrical outlets. This would sure solve that problem.

  14. What a fabulous idea! I just love the idea of being able to bring these lamps outdoors for the evening and move them so easily from place to place. No unsightly cords either! It was really hard to choose a favourite.
    P.S. I was unable to find a Facebook page for Modern Lantern. I tried a number of ways, and just kept going back to their website! Sorry!

  15. I really like the hive lamp too. Hate wires bc my twin toddlers won’t leave them alone. And I love the tool you’re using to capture entries! I haven’t entered anything in a long time so maybe it’s not new. It’s really cool though.

  16. love these lamps! perfect to use anywhere! i love the atmosphere it would bring to an outdoor gathering! hope i win one!

  17. My favorite lamp broke during the move to our new house. I would love one of these! And no cords!

  18. What an amazing
