The Modern Light
Courtney Paschal -- Casual Living, January 1, 2008
As outdoor lighting continues to generate interest, designers are stepping away from the traditional and thinking outside of the box. The result is more modern and unique designs with the same function — to add light and warmth to outdoor living areas.
The Ambiance Collection of exterior ceramic wall sconces from Architectural Products by Outwater offers a warm and subtle glow available in a variety of designs and finishes.
Combining verdigris and bronze finishes, the Nusa Dua floor lantern, part of the Richard Frinier Collection for Currey & Company, has a distinct Japanese sensibility with its simple, elegant and functional design.
The Cloister pendant from Architects & Heroes Interiors is made from an aged brass decorative sleeve with a frosted glass shade for a more contemporary take on outdoor lighting.
Progressive gardens will benefit from Kichler's contemporary path light, crafted of satin aluminum and teak, combined with etched white glass for a tailored design.
The Vidia lantern by Warisan is a cool alternative to path or garden lighting, fusing acrylic and grass for an au natural product.
