Outdoor lamps for a summer of conviviality

The days are getting longer, the greenery is regenerating, the temperatures are becoming milder, the desire to spend time in the open air returns to fill our days with fervor.

The arrival of spring is one of the most awaited moments of the year; an event that brings with it a breath of good humor and planning, both in terms of leisure and relaxation intentions for the warmer season, and in terms of those small household jobs that we have been putting off for some time... and which now, with serenity, they can be implemented.

Furnishing and beautifying outdoor spaces: where to start

Garden, porch, terrace, pergola, courtyard, loggia, gazebo : the traditional " spring cleaning " focuses on the external spaces of our homes , where simply tidying up is accompanied by the desire to make changes to give that exclusive touch to the open air environments. To feel better as a family and welcome guests in a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere.

Here then a real hunt for new trends in furniture and lighting is unleashed: points of reference are garden design shops and sites, outdoor furniture, outdoor lights , each with a vast range of brands and solutions and many opportunities to have fun.

An infinite offer that responds to any type of need, and which at the same time risks destabilizing. But there are some ways to orient yourself and not arrive without the purchase :

  • Take time to browse the internet and social media ( Instagram and Pinterest are very useful for this purpose ), so as to get an idea of ​​possible setups and decorations suitable for our spaces
  • Discuss with friends and relatives by sharing ideas and inspirations, including reasoning on the plant engineering part (for example connections, passage of cables, small hydraulic and building modifications)
  • Both in-store and online, rely on competent staff, showing some photographs of the porch, the garden, the courtyard that you want to redevelop and explaining - just a few indications are enough - what we have in mind
  • If you rely on an online retailer, make sure of its seriousness, the quality of the products and services provided and the existence of valid customer care.

Once we have identified the most suitable proposals for our needs, all that remains is to place the order for the items and get to work . Either personally or by involving sector experts: if furniture and furnishing accessories can be assembled and arranged independently, in the case of new lighting systems or flooring work, the intervention of a skilled craftsman may be needed.

Illuminating porches, pergolas, courtyards: how to choose an outdoor light?

As with interiors, even in the case of porches, pergolas, gardens, courtyards and loggias, the choice of lighting sources is fundamental as it allows you to create a hospitable and evocative environment, going beyond the mere practical role.

Nowadays, as we know, lights perform a double function - effectiveness and aesthetics - towards which all the most important Italian manufacturers look. Excellent examples of this are our outdoor wall lights , designed according to the best vintage standards and with a contemporary look, and our outdoor pendant lamps , elegant and designed to adapt to a wide variety of styles.

Both with an extremely refined soul, the wall lights are ideal in the absence of a covering and are able to illuminate efficiently while preserving their natural discretion. Suspension lamps are perfect in the case of pergolas, loggias or gazebos, where in addition to diffusing the light, they have an interesting decorative effect.
