bell-shaped, solid brass outdoor lighting

Bell-shaped, solid brass outdoor lighting by Hinkley Lighting

Bring the romance of colonial New England to your patio. Envision Paul Revere’s ride and celebrations of American Independence. Select Hinkley Lighting’s hanging outdoor lighting from its Liberty collection for bell-shaped lanterns. Extremely durable solid brass construction. Models 2174SN, 2172SN, and 2170SN are a lovely burnished Sienna finish for a golden look. Keep your eyes peeled for energy saving configurations and Dark Sky compliant lighting. The 6.25” diameter backplate is connected to the bell-shaped body with a large ring. This matches well with large-ring accessories such as a doorknocker.

Access Lighting LED Orb Wall Light
Access Lighting LED Orb Wall Light

As the days get longer and you long to stay outdoors later, you really appreciate the simple pleasures of quality, energy efficient light fixtures. Access Lighting understand this and that’s why they’re the leading designers of outdoor lighting for everyday life. Their latest outdoor wall light, the LED Orb, has so many features and yet it is such a simple solution to lighting the outdoors. The LED Orb is a straightforward fixture, but because it is super energy efficient you can keep your outdoors lit up without adding too much to your electric bill. Using only 7.2 watts, the LED Orb will last for up to literally tens of thousands of hours and requires very little maintenance.

The Satin Chrome finish and acrylic glass of the LED orb make it chic and contemporary, but simple enough to fit with any outdoor lighting decor. The LED Orb is a wet location rated wall fixture and in addition to being an energy saver, it is ADA compliant as well, so it would definitely look refined in a commercial setting too. Measuring 8″ in diameter and extending only 2.5″ from the wall, the LED Orb is large enough to turn heads but subtle enough that it doesn’t overshadow the rest of your outdoor accessories. Well-suited for fans of LED lighting, this lovely, glowing orb is perfect for summer nights on the veranda or lounging under the stars in your pool. Never forget to relish the special moments in life.

Light Pollution

Light Pollution

Welcome to the 21st Century, folks. With almost 7 billion people enjoying the fruits of this planet (and all the lighting technology that comes with it), things are starting to get a little too… bright. That is why leading environmentalists and astronomers have managed to persuade law makers to pass things like California’s Title 24, which regulates how much the people of California can consume in energy. California’s building efficiency standards (along with those for energy efficient appliances) have saved more than $56 billion in electricity and natural gas costs since 1978. It is estimated the standards will save an additional $23 billion by 2013. (Source: And that’s a good start to saving the planet and the night sky. So if you want to jump on the Title 24 bandwagon (you don’t even have to live in California!) check out these energy efficient and money saving fluorescent lighting fixtures right now.

But what IS Dark Sky Compliance? Don’t get me wrong, here at Affordable Lamps we obviously LOVE lighting up your life by lighting your home (especially with our amazing designer outdoor lighting fixtures), but a lot of people don’t know about the dangers of light pollution and what it can do to our beautiful starry nights.

Especially in urban populations, glare is a big issue. It’s important for commercial businesses to use Dark Sky Compliant lighting so that their outdoor lighting fixtures only shine light on what really needs to be illuminated.

"Ack! Light Pollution! I can't see!"

"Ack! Light Pollution! I can't see!"

It is dangerous for homes and businesses to use outdoor lighting that is not Dark Sky compliant, because the light beams could create glare which could be distracting to drivers and pedestrians.

Another issue, of course, is that in urban areas, amateur (and professional!) astronomers can no longer see the heavens. Stars, planets, meteors, the Moon -you name it- it all gets washed out by light that is needlessly directed upward, both wasting energy and blocking out the brilliance of the stars. But don’t worry, an effective way to increase energy efficiency while reducing light pollution is to use a full cutoff light fixture. This is achieved with the cutoff lighting fixture directing light only where it is needed – down at the user and out in the pathway of the user instead of up towards the sky and away in unneeded directions. A cutoff light fixture is one enclosed in a sort of shield, case, or cover that is used to “cut off” unnecessary light. These light covers come in many different styles, materials, and colors to match your outdoor lighting design needs.

According to our friends at the International Dark Sky Lighting Association, all Dark Sky compliant lighting installations should:

1. Be designed and installed to be fully shielded (full cutoff).

2. Have a maximum lamp wattage of 250 watts HID (or lumen equivalent) for commercial lighting, 100 watts incandescent, and 26 watts compact fluorescent for residential lighting (or approximately 1,600 lumens).

3. Be shielded such that the lamp itself or the lamp image is not directly visible outside the property perimeter.

Here is an example of a lovely Dark Sky compliant light fixture, just for your reference:

Nautilus Lamp

What do you think of when you hear the name “Nautilus?” If you are a baby boomer, then you more than likely associate it with the submarine of the same name from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, with Captain Nemo at the helm. If you are a Generation X person, then you think of Nautilus training equipment like the Bowflex. Well I say, get ready for a third interpretation: the Nautilus Outdoor Post Light from Troy Lighting (product page: This periscope-shaped lamp measures 13″ wide by 17″ high, uses a 60 watt medium base bulb, and features a vibrant English bronze finish and clear prismatic glass shades. There are matching pendants, sconces and flush mounts available, so all your outdoor lighting can be ship-shape for your seafaring guests.
