Have you ever skimmed through the glossy pages of a home and garden magazine and marveled at the unique outdoor lighting designs, and even yearned to have it for yourself? If the answer is yes, you are not alone. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is seeing a dramatic increase in the amount of commercial and residential customers that are requesting a more unique way of lighting areas of their properties. Among the most coveted type of decorative lighting right now is permanent festival lighting. Permanent festival lighting can add romance, nostalgia and ambiance to any outdoor setting. This is the type of lighting that makes you say aaahh when you see it in the landscape, or maybe even the biggest reason you and your better half enjoy dining at that street cafe down the block- because the lighting enlightens your mood!
Festival lighting began as a way to light outdoor areas in honor of outdoor celebrations. Street festivals filled with music and merriment were often draped in lights for an evening or two to commemorate a significant local event and removed at festivals end. Permanent festival lighting takes this dramatic lighting effect to a new level because the lighting is permanent which allows you to indulge in its appeal year-round! Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville recently completed permanent festival lighting installations here in Nashville at one residence, and two restaurants and calls continue to pour in as more business owners and homeowners alike are requesting this unique lighting for their home or storefront.
All festival lighting is not the same. Generally festival lighting falls into two categories, orb or pendant lighting and festoon lighting. Each genre of permanent festival lighting carries its own distinct beauty and we offer our customers the choice of either LED or incandescent permanent festival lighting.
Festoon lighting is a great way to awaken a difficult or overlooked area in your yard, or turn a courtyard or patio at your business into pure romance. Festival lighting is also a fun and unique lighting technique that works well in covered patios, outdoor structures and draped in waves within a designated spot in your landscape.
We use multiple strands of low-voltage LED or incandescent festoon lights and string them over the span of the area we are illuminating. We use cable to support the weight of the electrical wiring when we install permanent festival lighting over an area with a large span; this ensures the safety and the integrity of the system. We use commercial-grade lighting products and professional installation to achieve this hypnotic lighting effect. Festoon lighting comes in both clear (white), and colored to choose from.
Orb lighting lends an ethereal quality to any outdoor area where installed. They give the appearance of being “free-floating”. These lights come in 10″, 12″ and 16″ and are available in white, colored as well as clear acrylic. The effect these lights impose on a setting is stunning. Though these lights are contemporary in design they look great in both rural and urban themed settings. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives recently installed orb lighting at Arrington Vineyards in Arrington, TN. The addition of orb lighting has made this already magical property enchanting in the evening under the spell of this unique lighting technique.
One of our goals here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is to convey a mood and effect through our outdoor lighting designs. Permanent festival lighting is another way we are able to enliven the senses through our outdoor lighting designs. These lights would also be perfect in holiday lighting applications too-you will be so enamored by them you may decide to leave them up year round.
