As lighting manufacturers of chandeliers, outdoor exterior lighting lanterns, pendants and column mounted lanterns, we felt we had certainly built enough industrial chic design type outdoor exterior lanterns form the silent era of film making to the present. From the days of Charlie Chaplin films up to the recent making of the movie Seabiscuit, a Disney Film, we have been involved in the fabrication of “set props” in the form of film lighting for over 100 years.

The most innovative industrial chic outdoor exterior lighting trends don’t need to look like they were yanked off of an empty     warehouse for the sake of looking like some technical version of shabby chic.

beautifully styled design.

Outdoor Exterior Lanterns

Customlightstyles Wall-Mounted Lanterns

 

 

Outdoor Exterior LanternsOutdoor exterior lanterns for wall mounting come in a variety of ways to be mounted on surfaces. When planning the placement of an outdoor exterior lantern, it is always a good rule of thumb to determine the style of lantern first. Your home’s architecture can often dictate the style of lantern you may select. If your home is of an English Tudor heritage – one to two stories with wood trim, a thatched roof, perhaps leaded glass windows, then you might select an English Tudor Coach light, which is affixed to the wall and sports a tail reminiscent of Tudor style horse coaches from the 16th, 17th and 18th century. Or, you might consider another English styled wall lantern that resembles the home’s windows. See the Exterior Lighting page on our customlightstyles website for more examples.Outdoor Exterior Lanterns

Italian styled architecture actually enlarges the scope of outdoor lantern exterior lantern designs that you can select from. Whether the placement is at the entry to your home or over a highly elevated garage with ornate doors, there are many different styles of outdoor exterior lanterns to choose from. Also, if the area over your garage is exceptionally wide, then an outdoor exterior lantern mounted with “moustache” arms that extend outward from the outdoor exterior lantern’s cage, will often lend itself to the architecture and scale of the garage.

Outdoor Exterior LanternsOutdoor exterior lantern styles can be very simple or very ornate. It all depends upon the person’s taste, the home’s architecture and, of course, the weight of one’s pocketbook.

19 Hard Things You Need To Do To Be SuccessfulThis article really touched a chord with me, as an entrepreneur in today’s economy. I am working to keep lots of other people employed, and for that reason, I need to be reminded daily of how much my attitude, my demeanour and my metal counts with each and every individual I encounter. I have to stay positive in the face of dilemmas, time constraints and general malaise so that I can focus on the bigger picture. Staying successful and competitive in today’s American market. I want all of my clients to think I rock but I have to be prepared to not be the most popular kid on the block when it comes to decision-making.

Mr. Waldschmidt could not have written a more timely essay/list of points for us all to follow!

 

New England Barn Sconce – Outdoor Exterior Lighting

Cape Cod – Chatham – Boston – Maine – Rhode Island – Vermont. The 18th century produced many variations on the traditional and historic New England Barn Sconce. Heirloom-quality designs for the New England Barn Sconce were originally crafted entirely by hand out of copper and brass.

The 17th, 18th and 19th century styled New England Barn Sconce, of which there are many similar styles for this hefty outdoor lantern, was given great care in regards to the details. The straight lines of the outdoor lantern cage, along with the softly rounded roofline, the top yoke and, of course, the traditional reflector plate behind the (originally candle-lit) candle sockets, evoke a time when horse-drawn carriages transported neighbours coming to call for high tea and good conversation.

Historically -inspired yet simple in line and architecture, the New England Barn Sconce is the type of lantern that looks beautiful on many types of homes, from English Tudor to Tuscan-inspired structures.

Outdoor exterior New England Barn Sconces can add beauty, illumination and value to your home! See the Exterior Lighting page on our customlightstyles website for more examples.
