Featured Customer | Stem Mount Pendant Brings Warm Light to California Porch

With spring in full swing now, you may have succumbed to a case of remodeling fever. It’s quite easy to catch once you throw open the windows to a warm breeze and dust off the patio furniture in anticipation of backyard cookouts to come.

But perhaps your budget has other ideas. An easy way to add new life to your home decor without breaking the bank is to consider the details in your home. A simple thing like switching up your hardware is one way to change the look of your space and it doesn’t require professional help! Adding new drawer pulls in the kitchen or a new toiletry shelf in the guest bath might be just the thing to satisfy your need for a new look.

Today’s Featured Customer from California took the step of updating the exterior lighting on his porch. Robin was looking for something more industrial for his home but still classic. He found the perfect blend of both in our Drake Stem Mount Pendant. The Drake has the look of larger warehouse shades but in a more compact form. Robin chose a 12″ shade and selected the Galvanized finish.


“We like the galvanized finish for its appearance and for protection from exterior exposure,” Robin explains. He customized his American made fixture with a 6″ stem and a heavy duty canopy which is a wise choice in areas susceptible to high winds.

“We like the sturdy appearance of the fixture, the warm light source, and the interesting dispersion shape,” Robin notes.


The Drake is hand spun from commercial grade materials by our own artisans and will provide years of satisfaction in both exterior and interior locations. Choosing a finish color is like browsing the garden center on a spring morning with 15 brilliant colors to tempt you! Other customizing options include a cast guard and glass or a wire cage for a vintage look.
