Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood is home to a tidy cache of low-key home stores, of which group Enlighten is a notable member. And if you’re wanting the soft, organic lighting of a paper lantern but more unique than the tried and true but predictable Ikea version, Enlighten may be the place for you.
Enlighten deals primarily in lamps made from natural materials such as bamboo, twigs and paper, designed and created by owner Kalan Intawong. In addition to wares of the glowing, electrical variety, the store also stocks picture frames and small teak pieces.
A complement to the retail location, the online store is pretty well stocked. Check it out here.
