Complete with a stand-alone catalog and 22 new outdoor families, Kichler is reinvigorating its standing in the outdoor lantern category with the company’s largest outdoor product release to date. Central to the company’s new additions are 12 ENERGY STAR families, including three Design Pro LED collections, combining energy savings and dark sky compliance with the durable materials, quality finishes and innovative designs associated with the Kichler brand.
“Not only have we developed new outdoor families, but we’ve expanded our existing collections to include a wider range of wall-mounted lantern sizes and added more flush mounts, hangers and decorative posts,” said Bob Doernberg, Kichler senior product manager. “No matter what their personal style, budget or geographic location, homeowners will have a wide breadth of product from which to choose.”
Kichler outdoor families are constructed using durable solid brass, aluminum, or stainless steel, and incorporate powder-coated finishes to withstand harsh outdoor conditions.
Design Pro LED
Using 75 percent less electricity than their incandescent counterparts with an average lifespan of 15 years, Kichler’s new Design Pro LED lanterns apply the best LED technology available to produce a bright, white light in the same color range as traditional incandescent lighting.
The following Design Pro LED families are both ENERGY STAR and Dark Skies compliant:
Franceasi — Offered in four sizes, the elongated, rectangle-shaped Franceasi lanterns feature a four-sided traditional filigree pattern against a durable aluminum back plate in an Olde Bronze® finish. Incandescent versions with glass also are available.
Maya Palm – The lanterns of this free-form collection feature a flattened, cylinder-shaped housing comprised of intersecting, palm-leaf-inspired accents. Available in two sizes in an Aged Bronze finish.
Takil — Named for a palm native to the foothills of the Himalaya, the rectangular Takil lanterns feature an exposed palm-leaf design on three sides. Offered in two sizes in an Aged Bronze finish.
In addition to the Design Pro LED lanterns, eight new fluorescent outdoor families also are ENERGY STAR qualified. The following families are specifically designed for florescent lighting, complete with energy-saving photo cells. Incandescent versions also are available.
Camden — At the center of this vertically stretched family is an Opal Etched glass tube surrounded by a vertical framework finished in Anvil Iron. Available fixtures include four wall mounts, a post light, a hanging lantern and a ceiling mount.
Lancaster Gardens — The Lancaster Gardens family features two delicately floating aluminum leaf accents atop an oval shaped cylindrical Pine Bark glass in an Aged Bronze finish. Three wall-mount lanterns and a post light available as part of this collection.
Leeds – This soft contemporary family features rectangle-shaped, Cased Opal Etched glass with a rectangular-shaped accent along the bottom of the glass. Available fixtures include four wall mounts, a hanging lantern, a post light and a flush mount, all finished in Anvil Iron.
Pasadena — Mouth-blown, Feathered Cream art glass is the focal point of this updated Craftsman family. Dramatic, oval-shaped shades are cradled by framing that incorporates oval accents in an Olde Bronze finish. Eight striking pieces are available as part of this collection.
Cayman Shores — The universal symbol of hospitality, the pineapple, is the focus of this casual family. Pineapple-shaped framing surrounds mouth-blown, honey-colored textured glass, while a Legacy Bronze finish completes the look. Stand-out fixtures include three wall mount lanterns, each featuring a pineapple frame hanging from a curving rod, a post mounted lantern and a chain hung lantern.
Portman Square — This Arts and Crafts inspired family incorporates elongated rectangle-shaped Etched Seedy glass highlighted by vertical metal banding on each side. Offered in two finishes and two materials, including Solid Brass with an Olde Bronze or Stainless Steel finish.
Royal Marine — This collection takes its name from the nautical-inspired accents found throughout the design and detailing of this four-piece family. The marine-styled designs are complemented by an Olde Bronze finish.
Venetian Rain — The entrancing beauty of raindrops scattered against a window pane is replicated within the texture and design of this family’s clear glass shades. Each elongated, inverted-triangle shade houses candelabra bulbs, and intricate iron framework and finials add to the collection’s beauty. Eight traditional fixtures, including an eye-catching post light, are powder-coated and available in a hand-painted Burnished Bronze or a deep Black finish with gold highlights.
