Jennifer gets snaps for sending us this very nice midcentury style post lantern, with matching wall lantern. to consider for out front. Finding appropriate outdoor lighting is always a hot topic, with not *that many* resources on our list yet. So this is a very welcome addition. Here’s what Jennifer writes:
I’ve been searching for a nice mid-century outdoor post lamp for a long time and finally found one that fits the bill perfectly. It’s made by Besa Lighting, model 3356. I haven’t ordered it so I can’t speak to the quality but I was so excited about it, I thought it’d be nice to share with others. – Jennifer
Yes, you are nice to share, Jennifer, thank you! I poked around the site – and I agree that you have nailed the model that has the best a retro/midcentury feel. It’s that hood-umbrella thingy – you see those in midcentury homes. The other Besa lighting fixtures (while appealing and I especially like their ribbed glass globes, so cool) are too contemporary/Euro-style/today for our older houses, I tend to think. Good eye, J.
