LIGHTING COMPANIES AMP UP DESIGN IN OUTDOOR LIGHTING
  ARRAMORE COLLECTION. FEISS. TM 4010.
O utdoor living. It’s a thing these days. Consumers are spending
more time outdoors, regardless
of climate, and as a result are looking at outdoor furnishings that re ect their indoor spaces. This trend has been growing for some time, and in the past few years, outdoor furniture has taken on a more sophisticated aesthetic, and homeowners have been increasingly out tting outdoor spaces with kitchens, televisions and other indoor creature comforts.
Perhaps one of the last frontiers for outdoor living spaces is lighting. With advances in bulb and solar technologies, outdoor lighting has seen a step up in both design and durability.
“I think the advent of LED technology has made outdoor lighting explode,” said Brian Litner, director of product development for Feiss, Monte Carlo and Sea Gull Lighting. “It eliminates heat and safety issues so there can be more accessibility for lighting in di erent locations.”
New materials, such as the company’s StoneStrong material, give the appearance of upscale  nishes with resistance to salt, sunlight and water. “It’s especially good for coastal regions,” Litner noted.
