Wooden Lamps
Various types of lighting accessories, especially the tunggyongs (lamp stands) using candles were most popular and appreciated mainly by the upper class during the Joseon period while the common classes used oil lamps. Because of the high costs of candle sticks the government restricted the use of candles exclusively to ceremonial or interior lighting in upper class houses. A candle set on a stick was placed inside the lantern. The interior of the four sides of the lantern was finished in silk or rice papers. One side was crafted to open. Today, the same type of lanterns are used with electric lights as a decoration.
The dark wood of these lamps gives a beautiful contrast to the white rice paper (shoji). They provide a beautiful and decorative effect in daylight and a warm, romantic light at night.
Positioned on an end table or tansu, these lamps make the perfect focal point in your room.
