Lighting is part of who we are. Whether it is testing new inventions to improve the way we are able to provide the best outdoor lighting to you, or attending conventions and seminars to further our knowledge in the field — outdoor lighting is always on our minds and we take inspiration from all around us in our travels and daily lives. With this in mind, we recently attended LIGHTFAIR International 2016.

This is the conference where light, technology and design converge to reveal new solutions, new knowledge and new discoveries. 500 of the world’s leading manufacturers take center stage to showcase the latest technologies and innovations in over 200,000 square feet of exhibit space, including products and solutions
to enhance our customers’ outdoor lighting experience.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville proud to be part of the team for Anne Daigh’s award winning gardens

Deck BB02 used under fountain in entry garden by Anne Daigh landscape architect,LLC at Nasheville Antiques and Garden Show

A match made in heaven. This tranquil fountain and our innovative lighting was featured in the entry garden at the recent Nashville Antiques and Garden show.

We had a wonderful time participating in the Antiques and Gardens Show of Nashville this past weekend. Along with getting to meet and discuss outdoor lighting ideas with many homeowners who attended the show, we also teamed up with super talented Anne Daigh Landscape Architect, LLC. We were honored to help bring her featured garden, the entry garden, to life with the addition of our outdoor lighting, and even more elated to learn that the garden won first place in two categories at this year’s show as well!

The garden won both the Structure & Design Award, and the coveted Bryant Fleming Award for Best of Show. The Structure & Design Award is presented for the garden that best demonstrates the integration of horticulture and hardscape elements. The Bryant Fleming Award for Best of Show is presented for the Best of Show with respect to both horticulture and creativity.

Nashville path lighting elegantly integrated into this award-winning show garden.

We integrated a combination of our high-quality outdoor lighting fixtures into the entry garden including our new BB-02 path lights, and BB-02 deck lights. Both of these fixtures are some of our most popular, and exude a timeless, elegant design that blend  seamlessly into the garden enhancing it with romantic washes of light. The lighting demonstrated not only the power of outdoor lighting within a landscape or garden setting, but how the two entities can mold together to become one in a true definition of artistic impression. Just like the philosophy behind Anne Daigh Landscape Architect, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville also believes in being a storyteller. As the landscape design and individual plant selections outline the story, the outdoor lighting and other enhancements will help elaborate the story and bring it to life.

The BB-02‘s versatile design allows landscape friendly installations in multiple landscape designs. The BB-02 is available in different heights to work perfectly when placed in grasses. Some of the areas this light works best for include decorative ornamental grasses within the landscape, as well as other shrubs and plants and in outdoor spaces that have cumbersome dimensions to work with. Paths lined with borders of variable height foliage and perennials will also benefit from the use of the  BB-02. The list of areas this fixture is perfect for go on and on.

Not only does the fixture look the part, it delivers a 30 degree beam spread which means this little light can go places no  other light has gone before and illuminate those areas beautifully to boot.  As with every quality fixture within the family of those used here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville, this light will make adding more beauty and definition to your professional outdoor lighting design a breeze.
