Festival outdoor lighting is hot! You have probably seen festival lighting,(sometimes referred to as fiesta, festoon or Cafe lighting) the last time you flipped through the pages of an upscale home & garden magazine. Festival lighting is all the rage for homeowners wanting to add ambiance in their outdoor settings. This style of lighting is one of the most interesting and versatile lighting trends customers are requesting. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte embraces emerging and unique outdoor lighting ideas and new ways to introduce not only illumination into an area, but also as a way to convey a feeling of a mood within a space.
The origins of Festival lighting began with its namesake; festivals and originated as a way to light outdoor areas in honor of outdoor celebrations. Street festivals and fairs throughout the world, and historically, are 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 it allows you to indulge in its appeal night after night. We have received many requests from Charlotteans requesting festival lighting installation in their own backyards and requests continue to pour in as more homeowners, and even business owners, are requesting this unique lighting for their backyards, outdoor living spaces and commercial storefronts.
There’s much more to permanent festival lighting than just stringing up a string of lights — much more. Keep in mind, though similar in nature, 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 has its own distinct beauty and style.
- Festoon Lighting – Festoon lighting is a romantic and unique lighting technique and serves as a great way to illuminate a difficult or overlooked outdoor area in your landscape or transform a courtyard or patio. This technique entails installing multiple strands of low-voltage LED festoon lights over the span of the area we are illuminating. We also 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.
- Orb Lighting – Orb lighting lends an ethereal quality to any outdoor area where it is installed because this genre of lighting gives the appearance of being “free-floating”. Orb lighting is available in 10″, 12″ and 16″ and in white,colored as well as clear acrylic. The effect these lights add to an outdoor setting is enchanting. Though these lights are contemporary in design they look great in both rural and urban themed settings.
We are having great success using festival lighting to convey beauty, ambiance and character through our outdoor lighting. Permanent festival lighting is another way we are able to enliven the senses — Contact Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte today to learn more.
