Why are the Benjamin® Collection’s stem mount pendants popular?

Stem mounting a pendant is the ideal way to carry your home or business’s interior style into its outdoor areas. This creates a seamless, shared style between the two spaces. Stem mount pendants use a metal piping to shield the wiring from the various challenges they may face in outdoor locations. Because our inspirations lie in old-world shade styles, these ceiling lights blend harmoniously into more traditional aesthetics. However, the industrial-edge provided by stem also assists in styling contemporary locations.

Is porcelain enamel used for stem mount lights?

Porcelain enamel is among the most popular finish options for stem mount lighting. The incorporation of this high-gloss, durable material imbues quality into these shades. Fused to the metal in a high-temperature oven, the porcelain protects metal shades from all types of weather. With its glistening surface, porcelain vibrantly conveys colors to help the lighting stand out.

How are porcelain stem mount lights constructed?

Made exclusively in the United States, the Benjamin® Collection’s shades are constructed entirely from steel. Our team of metal spinners shapes each shade individually by hand, ensuring a level of quality and attention to detail not found in other manufacturers. The combination of a sturdy stem mounting, porcelain enamel, high quality steel, and meticulous craftsmanship gives the Benjamin® Collection its trademark durability. Each porcelain ceiling pendant is made-to-order, granting you the opportunity to make these pendants truly your own.

Where is porcelain stem mount lighting typically installed?
