Above: The folding concertina Karaman Lantern from Toast is 13cm in diameter and features a starched linen-cotton shade and a perforated silvered copper base; currently on sale for £29 (down from £39).

Above: Task in Brooklyn offers the Ottomania Lantern made of tin-coated copper and unbleached cotton for $64 (9 inches in diameter).
