Deep in the Golden woods of Lothlorien stand the majestic city of Caras Galadhon, home of Lady Galadriel. Honestly, no single image can capture the beauty of this place. You really have to ‘’be’’ there to get it. I believe Turbine did a wonderful job recreating this emblematic city of Middle-Earth. There were spot on the magical feel described in the book, and surprisingly, they did it with almost no interior design!
Because of the warm weather and their proximity to nature, the elves of Caras Galadhon seem to live mostly on open platforms in the tree. There are only a few doors in the entire city: one leading to the bank, the other to Lady Galadriel and Lord Celeborn’s apartments (where player are not allowed). Doors seem to be carved directly into the trees, with golden adornments and delicate swan like handles.
However most of what looks like the houses also seems to lack doors… Of maybe they are well hidden from the non-initiates, hehe.
Noticed the garlands and lanterns in the previous pictures? Lighting fixtures is one of my favourite features of Caras Galadhon. The elves truly have the most amazing lamps of all Middle-Earth, and they have tons of different models. See the Decoration and Furniture Guide to get one of your own!
I’m also quite jealous of their upgraded version of Lorien bench.
