Outdoor Lighting Fixtures By Flambeaux

Outdoor lighting fixtures naturally serve two purposes for homes and businesses.

First, they provide functional lighting for a building’s exterior and add safety and security. Second, they create outdoor ambiance and set the tone & style for your home or business.

With so many options for outdoor & landscape lighting – including path lights, LED outdoor string lights, outdoor wall sconces, motion sensor lights, decorative garden lighting, deck lights, solar lights, flood lights, solar-powered lamps, and torches – you can really get creative. Plus, it’s often fun to design your outdoor space & curb appeal by choosing a light fixture or fixtures that reflect your unique tastes.

One great way to do this is to choose a unique, eye-catching, handmade outdoor lantern from Flambeaux Lighting. Read on to learn more about your one-of-a-kind outdoor light fixture options from Flambeaux.

Types of Flambeaux Outdoor Lighting

At Flambeaux Lighting, we specialize in creating indoor & outdoor ambiance using beautifully handcrafted copper and stainless steel lanterns. We also design and build other types of indoor & outdoor light fixtures, such as lamps and pendants.

Outdoor Gas and Electric Lanterns

Our gas and electric lanterns are available in various sizes, power options, mounting options, glass options, and finishes.

When you shop our antique copper lanterns, you always have lots of choices as well as the option of customization. Our designers and coppersmiths are skilled in taking any idea you may have for your outdoor lighting needs (while offering you inspiration!) and translating your ideas into reality by building custom lanterns that fit your vision.

Our outdoor gas lanterns are by far the most popular choices among our clients, and nearly every lantern can be retrofitted with electric power to add a little bit more flexibility, low-voltage energy savings, safety, and to eliminate a gas bill.

Outdoor Pendants

Our antique copper pendants are remarkably unique when used as outdoor light fixtures.

Mount them over an outdoor patio table on your backyard deck or install them over dining tables in your outdoor café to create a modern & nostalgic vibe. Our outdoor pendant light fixtures can also add an inviting feel to a porch entryway, provide stylish & functional lighting over an outdoor kitchen island, or strategically & beautifully light an outdoor breezeway.

Like our gas and electric lanterns, our electric light pendants are available in multiple sizes, finishes, and hanging types to fit the needs of your project. And if you’re not sure which options work best for your needs, all you have to do is give us a call at 866-799-8443 to discuss the details of your project.

Installation Types for Our Outdoor Light Fixtures

How and where you mount your outdoor light fixture can make a tremendous difference in the overall look, feel, and curb appeal of your property.

Most of our outdoor lanterns offer these installation options:

  • Post Mount – Your lantern is mounted from a post or column. This can include a wooden or metal post planted directly into the ground, patio, or decking. This is also called a “column mount” if the lighting is affixed directly to a brick or stone column as part of a fence or wall. Post lights offer an excellent view of the illumination from all directions.
  • Wall Mount – Some of our lanterns mount directly to a wall or an exterior surface. This mounting is sometimes called “flush mount” and tends to favor traditional low-voltage electric power, as the temperature stays lower than with natural gas flame power.
  • Bracket Mount – Iron brackets are the easiest form of installation for our outdoor lanterns and possibly the most stylish. Standard mounting brackets suspend the lantern a few inches off of the mounting surface. Brackets are available in a variety of design types, from dressier scroll brackets to more modern clean line brackets.
  • Hanging Mount – Our outdoor lanterns and hanging lights can also be hung from the ceiling with the hanging mount option. You’ll see this example with our Bourbon Street-style lanterns – and, like bracket mount, this option can be combined with dressier touches, like a yoke bracket or a ladder rack.

Many of our electric pendant light fixtures offer a few different hanging installation options, too, including:

  • Corded – This is a typical electric corded light and offers more flexibility in installation.
  • Brass Chain – A brass chain offers a little more durability than corded while still keeping flexibility in installation top of mind.
  • Steel Hard Stem – A steel hard stem offers a modern streamlined look for permanent and less flexible installation.

Additionally, some outdoor pendant models – like our popular small bell and large bell pendants – are only offered in the steel stem option.

Outdoor Lantern and Lighting Finish Options

With a Flambeaux outdoor lighting fixture, you are no longer limited to the standard colors of outdoor lighting – usually silver and black. You have a range of antiqued & bold colors at your fingertips. Choose your favorite!

  • Our Signature Aged Copper Finish – Our antiqued tawny or russet-colored copper
  • Raw Copper Finish – A classic, shinier copper sheen
  • Dark Copper Finish – A bolder and deeper oil-rubbed bronze look that appears black-brown in various environments.
  • Stainless Steel – A corrosion resistant choice for less forgiving climates.
  • Green Patina – Our pendants offer this additional option of a natural green copper patina that adds rustic & antique personality to your fixture.

With each of our copper finishes, you can expect your lantern or pendant to patina overtime. You may love this effect and want to keep it. A lot of our customers do! If you don’t, that’s OK! Polish your lantern or pendant regularly to keep it from developing a patina overtime.

Determining How Many Outdoor Light Fixtures You Need

Deciding just how many outdoor light fixtures you need can be a tough call. Depending on the type of outdoor setting you have, one or 2 strategically placed lights may do the job.

However, many homeowners or business-owners find that they’d like to use sets of 5, 10, or more (and different) fixtures to get the look they want. Much of this depends on the size of your landscape, the design of your home or business, your mounting or hanging options, your power options, and your budget.

We love working with our customers to provide outdoor lighting consultations for your outdoor space, working up designs you’ll love, and building the products to make your design and vision come to life.
