A look at exterior lighting for old houses, including porch lights, patio lights, landscape lighting, garden path lighting, lanterns, gas lighting, antique reproduction lighting and more.
The entryway or porch light looks right when it illuminates the style antecedents of the house. Early lighting designs in copper or iron have been joined by lantern types patterned on those in French monasteries, English castles, and California’s iconic Arts & Crafts houses.
Authentic Designs makes reproductions of colonial and early American lighting fixtures. We began by researching the originals which we found in historic New England inns, museums and private collections, and now recreate them in perfect detail.
