These two new outdoor lighting collections – including one in Kichler’s new LifeBrite™ Polished Marine Grade 316 Stainless Steel finish – feature striking pieces that illuminate entryways, driveways, pathways and more, delivering visibility while enhancing architectural features, curb appeal and, of course, safety, for areas outside the home. Just as important, they are constructed using durable, high-quality materials and finishes and can be easily installed by the homeowner without the need for a landscape or electrical contractor. New outdoor collections from Kichler include: Pacific Edge™ – First embraced for light fixtures inside the home, silvery finishes such as stainless steel are heading outdoors in sleek styles that appeal to trend-setting homeowners. Kichler’s Pacific Edge is its first outdoor lighting collection constructed with Marine Grade 316 Stainless Steel featuring the new LifeBrite™ Finish. This polished stainless steel finish has a lifetime guarantee to withstand the harshest elements, salt air and extreme weather conditions. Featuring two pendants, one post mount and four wall-mount fixtures, the Pacific Edge Family makes a classic yet contemporary statement with incandescent lighting encased in cylindrical, satin-etched cased opal glass diffusers, hooded and double-ringed with highly polished steel. The collection is also available in an Architectural Bronze™ Finish with satin-etched cased opal glass and featuring cast aluminum construction. Lura™ – Unencumbered light takes center stage in the Lura Collection. Classic yet current in style, the Lura lanterns are designed with cylindrical, satin-etched cased opal glass diffusers, narrowed at the top with a curved bottom edge and open base. Featuring durable, cast aluminum construction, incandescent bulbs and Kichler’s Anvil Iron finish, this collection includes three wall mounts, one flush, two pendants and a two-light post fixture.
