You Never get a Second Chance of Making a First Impression…!

The weather is getting cooler and the days are getting shorter which makes it a great time to update your outdoor lighting.

You never get a second chance of making a first impression, and you want your guests to feel welcome from the moment they pull up to your home. You also want them to enter safely!

With so many recent trends in outdoor lighting, the decision-making on what to purchase, can be overwhelming.  At this year’s June Dallas Market, Rick Seidman, President & CEO of Quoizel spoke to Samantha Hart, Group Editor from Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, to discuss top trends in today’s outdoor lighting. We live in this Amazon-era of high technology, and I think when people get to their home they want it simple, they want it clean and yet contemporized. As the outdoor living space becomes an extension of interior, that whole look and trend is moving outside” says Rick.

Consumers want their outdoor lighting to be durable, yet beautiful while complementing their decor. Luckily, Quoizel has captured this with their wide variety of styles which feature many different designs, finishes, materials and new LED technology that meet the trends in today’s lighting.

Finishes such as metallic and copper are very popular and the Charleston Copper Lantern gives you the historic look of gas lighting but without the hassle of a propane feed. The electric, copper and hand-riveted lantern gives your home the romantic reproduction style of antique gas lights still popular today on many of the charming homes in New Orleans and Charleston.

Inspired by Craftsman design the Coastal Armour Crusade Outdoor Series is clean and classic. Encased in the crisscrossed bands, the clear seedy glass emits plenty of light. Coastal Armour by Quoizel creates the next generation of products by using a material of extraordinary strength, durability and beauty.  This extraordinary weather-resistant outdoor material has been tested to withstand extreme heat and brutal cold; it is non-corrosive (acid and alkali-resistant) and UV resistant and is offered with a 5-year warranty.

Continuing with the trend of clean lines and mixing metals is the Goldenrod outdoor series that is intriguing yet classic. The rich western bronze finish of the base is accented with stripes of metal painted a lustrous gold. The beveled clear glass panels are in keeping with the overall design of the collection.

Updating a favorite classic…Like that black dress, the Newbury never goes out of style. This collection gives the outside of your home a rich elegance without looking over embellished. It’s versatile look that coordinates with most any architectural style is offered in antique brass, aged copper, polished brass, mystic black, pewter and medici bronze and is now offered with integrated LED technology that comes with an impressive ten year limited electrical warranty.

It’s a great time to readjust those outdoor timers so that you can also enter your home safely!
