A Cocktail of Cultures
Morocco itself is a cocktail of cultures and influences. If you want to achieve this style then you can mix and match ideas from the Mediterranean, Africa and the Middle East. A tapestry of textures and warm, spicy colours work wonderfully with with plenty of ambient light. So you can illuminate your colourful interiors. The word fanous is sometimes used for lamps and lights in Morocco amongst other places, originally thought to be from a Greek word whose meaning is candle.
Multiple lights are a signature of this look and create a beautiful ambient glow with pockets of peekaboo light and shade. As the light shines through the fretwork it transiently paints the walls with pretty patterns.
Here, our aptly named Kaftan table lamp shows off intricate fretwork when alight through the punctured pin holes. It has a a nickel finish which is also reflective of light from other sources in the room. The tiny holes create glimpses of light and shade onto nearby surfaces, perfect for evoking an exotic spirit and relaxing milieu. Adding plenty of soft, comfy throws and a mix-match of patterned cushions will really complete the look.
Your Home is Your Temple
Introducing Moroccan style lighting in your home can make it feel like a little temple.

Pictured above is a variety of table lamps by Forestier Paris, named the Tibet, Imperatrice and Opium. Although a French designer these lamps have a distinctly Moroccan taste. Ceiling pendants are available in the same style too if you would like a cohesive scheme. They work well combined with other lamps as they are in a classic black, which works with pretty much everything. An elegant and ambient atmosphere as the mesh-work diffuses the light softly. Not only lighting for illumination they will enhance the interiors decoratively too, providing sculptural intrigue and style.
Vintage Morocco Vibe
The Amina Pendant is characteristic of Moroccan style with its distinct wide shaped base which becomes narrower towards the top. Whilst adding a vintage, quality feeling. Enhanced by the twisted cable flex suspension and the rich, balmy patina of the shade. A great look for the hospitality sector, over tables, kitchen islands and bar’s either at home or for your café or restaurant. You can suspend this pendant singularly or as a group it works well in a row. You could fit a row at various heights? As when fitting you can adjust the height of the cable for a more dramatic impact.
