Growing up in the South, hurricane season was something we were forced to prepare for every year. We vividly remember (with surprising fondness) hunkering down with our family while waiting out the eye of the storm. Once the sun went down, we used hurricane lamps to keep our darkened home lit--making us feel safe and warm.
Beautiful and functional, the hurricane lamps shape makes it almost impossible for wind to extinguish its flame. With a twist of the knob, you can turn the flame up to light up an entire room, or cast a warm glow for a romantic evening in. Striking on its own or charming in a group, the vintage hurricane lamp is a unique addition to your homes decor.
