Copper Exterior Lighting
Elegant outdoor copper lighting fixtures are not just attractive to the eye, they are part of a grand tradition of exterior home decor in the greater New Orleans area. They are a key feature of your home’s unique style. In addition to bringing a sophisticated air to your property, they can provide you with security and serve a utilitarian purpose, with a touch of glamour.
Here at Flambeaux, we take immense pride in our locally crafted Louisiana creations. We live in a very unique place. It is a melting pot of various cultures that blend together to create special traditions that you won’t be able to experience anywhere else. We here in the “boot” certainly have an affinity for adapting something common and making it our own which is usually anything but ordinary. We are proud to carry on this legacy.
Just take a look at our Old New Orleans Lantern for an example of our rich southeastern Louisiana aesthetic.

Choosing A Finish For Your Exterior Lights
We have so many custom copper finishes to choose from when it comes to our outdoor copper lighting. There is the dark copper oxidized finish, the non-oxidized finish, standard aged copper finish, standard copper oxidation, raw copper, and, if copper is not an option, our stainless steel finish.
We age out copper in ways to make it appear as though it is showing a natural patina. This weathered look gives our outdoor light fixtures the appearance of antique copper, as though it had endured the slow oxidation process over time. This usually takes several years, or even decades. Our finishes provide for the protection of the fixture, while also allowing it to develop and sustain a vintage look that will add character to your home and property.
Of course, the copper finish you choose is all a matter of your personal taste. It really depends on the style of your home or business, as well as the tone or vibe that you would like to portray. You may not want your light fixtures to age over time, and, for you, a more protective copper finish will keep your copper lighting shiny and new.
Also, if you do prefer an aged copper finish, consider your local climate when making an outdoor lighting selection. Warmth, bitter cold, and excessive rain, snow, and ice can all contribute to speeding up or slowing down the oxidation process, so think about your environment as you select lighting. This is especially important if you live in a very wet location. Just assess the vast variety of weather that you experience in your area. Is it windy or gusty? Try a thermocouple option. Are you located on the coast where sea salt may be an issue? Perhaps you should consider a stainless steel finish instead.
Types Of Exterior Lighting
The best exterior light fixtures will brighten your yard underneath the dark sky of winter. In order to accomplish this, you should place exterior lighting of several varieties in many areas around your home and outdoor area. There are so many types of outdoor lights, such as sea gull lighting, LED outdoor lights, light outdoor wall lanterns, copper outdoor wall lights, landscape lighting, progress lighting, and bronze outdoor wall lights, just to reference a few popular choices. You can use them to light up your backyard, driveway, walkways, garden, patio, or pool area. We have lovely candelabra lamps for your deck, and swinging ceiling lights, lighted ceiling fans, or chandeliers for use over your front and rear doorways. We even sell barn lights for our rural customers. We have a wide selection of outdoor lighting for all areas that you want lit up at night, so you can easily enjoy greater accessibility.
There are different ways to install our lanterns, as well. We have wall mount and flush mount fixtures, which seem to be similar, but they are actually quite different. Flush mounts attach directly flush with the wall and do not require a back. Conversely, wall mounts usually need a bracket to attach completely to the wall, such as a gooseneck bracket, one of the most common varieties.We can handcraft pretty much any option you desire with our expansive, durable stainless steel. Kenroy Home and Designers Fountain can not compare.
Looking for alternate power supply options for your light? That is no problem for us at Flambeaux. We can craft our customers any outdoor fixtures to accommodate the power options that they need within a given space. You may choose from flame lighting, propane-powered lighting, or incandescent or LED light bulbs or electric-powered light bulbs.
If you prefer a lightbulb, you have a vast array of choices to pick from. Many homeowners that opt for electric lights find that the dimmable function that an electric light bulb provides is a pleasant perk.
