As the increase in demand for outdoor living spaces continues to grow, fortunately so do the options for exterior lighting. This has become ever so evident in the hanging pendant and chandelier category, and we couldn’t be more thrilled about some of the latest design offerings. Adding a hanging fixture to your outdoor living area not only provides the space with necessary additional illumination for entertaining, but also gives the environment a visual anchor that adds interest, personality, and a strong design element to your exterior space. The Corbin Collection, from Capital Lighting, is one of our newest favorites- offering a transitional look with a nautical edge, fit to properly adorn any lake home. For the orb lover- Hinkley Lighting’s Carson Collection offers a playful edge to any space, and looks fabulous suspended over a sitting area or above an outdoor dining table. For the more structured and simple, we recommend The Rhodes Collection, also from Hinkley Lighting. The tailored pieces in this collection carry handsome appeal with a clean and transitional design.

Get ready to be swept away! One of the most exciting exterior trends we have recently seen is the increasingly popular “windmill” design ceiling fan. One of the first to launch the look, Quorum International’s collection- properly named as Windmill– provides us with two metal finish options and four different sizes, along with coordinating light kits. This highly recognized design has become a showroom staff favorite, and a definite showstopper on our floor. Kichler Lighting also has embraced the sought after style with the current release of their Gentry Collection, which comes equipped with integrated LED technology and a softer, more streamlined body style. The latest brand to hop on board has been Minka-Aire, with the release of their Molino Collection. This bold windmill variation also comes standard with an integrated LED light kit, along with more pronounced framework and darker blade finishes.
