Old-World Charm, Modern Luxury: 3 Reasons to Love Gas Lighting

Is there anything more charming than the soft flicker of a gas lantern as you walk by? Not a chance. Gas fixtures evoke a certain old-world charm that electric lighting cannot match. The history of gas lanterns is rich. In fact, they are simply iconic in some parts of the world (can you imagine strolling the French Quarter without them?!). With styles ranging from traditional to contemporary, and everything in between, designers have been able to combine this rich history and craftsmanship with modern technology to bring a truly luxurious lighting experience to the market.

If the iconic flickering flame hasn’t convinced you already, here are three more reasons to love gas lighting:

1. Gas lanterns are available in a variety of styles and finishes. Although gas lanterns are often considered old-world or historic, they are a great way to add warmth and ambiance to contemporary architectural styles. From traditional to modern variations, gas lanterns are a luxurious lighting option that will elevate the look of any home, regardless of its style. These fixtures can be wall, ceiling, or post mounted.

2. Not only do gas lights not require the pesky changing of light bulbs, they can also help you cut down on your energy usage since they only require a small amount of gas themselves to operate. Additionally, you also have complete control over the gas flame, with knobs to adjust the level/brightness.

3. Gas lighting provides an exceptionally warm and inviting ambiance. The soft glow of a gas lantern creates a cozy and intimate setting, without the harsh shadows and glares typically associated with electric light fixtures.

All in all, gas lighting is a smart choice for anyone looking to add distinction, beauty and warmth to their space. Make an elegant statement with gas lighting from Graham’s!
