Order Info – How to Pick a Product
Decide on a Style
When choosing outdoor lighting it is not always necessary to have the same style throughout although that is okay too. Choosing two different compatible styles can be interesting. Each side of the building could have the same style fixture although in different sizes: (ie. larger on the garage than by the patio doors. Or the courtyard could have a different style than the front door.
The size of each fixture is dependent on the area of installation. 8” wide fixtures look better next to standard height doors. 10” wide fixtures or larger look impressive when hung next to larger doors or on large walls.
To approximate the correct size ,make a rough mock-up of the fixtures you are interested in using cardboard, string and tape is a great way to approximate the 3-D fixture in place. All measurements are listed in the catalog for each fixture. Start with the biggest size you are considering. It is easier to cut down your mock-up from a bigger to a smaller size.
Pick the Finish, Glass Choice, & Select a Shade Style
All of our fixtures are priced in the catalog in our standard black finish and with clear glass. We offer 14 other beautifully hand applied finishes other than standard black and other glass choices which are listed under upgrades in the catalog. The hand applied finishes bestow the handmade wrought iron with elegance and an authentic aged look.
Although we take great care in applying finishes to our products, they may require maintenance over their lifetime. Because of the nature of wrought iron products, our finishes are not guaranteed against rust.
The outdoor lanterns have five different glass choices. Honey opal looks like light amber honey and is opaque. The light bulb will not show with this type of glass. The Heavy Seedy glass is the most diffused clear glass selection with lots of small air bubbles trapped in the glass. The Light Seedy and Restoration glass has the appearance of old handmade imperfect glass. The Hammered glass looks like a ball peened, hammered, surface.

Sizing Tip Chandeliers in a dining room are size dependent on the table they hang over. A chandelier should be about 2/3’s of the size of the width of the dining room table and hang from 30” to 36” above that table.
When sizing chandeliers that will hang up in a room for general illumination, they should relate to the room size. If the chandelier hangs in between trusses, use the distance between the trusses as the critical measurement. Chandeliers should hang at least 7’6” above the floor
Most chandeliers can be made in larger sizes even if not shown in catalog.
