Hanging Lantern Pendants Light Up Front Porches
In the old days homeowners would leave out a lantern when guests or family members were expected to arrive after dark. This simple courtesy made travelers feel safer and more welcome. Now you can carry on that sentiment on your own front porch with these rustic hanging lanterns. They have an old-fashioned allure with a simple lantern design. The saucer shade and flat base give them traditional charm while the cast guard adds a touch of industrial flair. These American-made pendant lights can be hung on your home's façade or used under a business awning or entryway to greet guests. Restaurants get a homey touch when you hang these pendants at the door.
Where to Use Vapor-Tight Light Fixtures
We gave these vapor-tight fixtures a classic lantern design to allow them to fit in with any type of upscale décor. However, they are rugged enough for the most extreme and high-risk spaces as well. To be vapor-tight means that a fixture will resist vapors, moisture, and dust so that the light bulb, socket, and wiring can perform longer and more efficiently. These lights can be used in any waterside location like docks, boardwalks, and marinas. They can also be used in damp commercial spaces like laundries, bakeries, ice cream shops, walk-in freezers, and car washes. Indoor swimming pools, sporting arenas, barns, and parking garages can also benefit from attractive vapor-tight lights.
Give Your Pendant Light an Antique Personality
These lantern pendants can be made to look like real antiques from a mid-century farmhouse when you finish them with one of our faux aged finishes. These include powder coats in Rust or Patina hues, and real brass and copper with Aged or Weathered finishes. If you choose a real copper or brass fixture please be aware that the cast guard will be made from aluminum. It will be given a copper or brass finish to match. To hang this pendant indoors or outdoors, choose one of our many cord or stem mounting options.
