Versatile and stylish furniture and accessories can help you create the perfect oasis close to home.

Out of the Shadows Inside or outside, the Brasa Round Tortoise ceramic lantern casts lively shadows, adding instant ambiance to any setting. Also available in chrome and warm bronze, the lamp uses renewable fuel that creates a vibrant flame and requires no vent. The Brasa Collection of shadow lanterns, fire lamps and fireplaces is available in New Orleans at Spruce Eco-Studio.
