Outdoor Traditional Lighting

Design Tips:

  • An antique bronze or antique brass finish will give new lighting the appearance of patina.
  • Choose one style of traditional outdoor lighting and use this style throughout the exterior lighting design for a polished look.
  • Select coordinating or matching outdoor lights for both the home and garage.
Architectural trends throughout the decades and centuries means there is a lot of variety when it comes to home styles. Among the most popular styles is traditional home architecture that favors formality and distinguished details. Traditional outdoor lighting is the perfect complement for traditional home architecture. These traditional outdoor lights feature classic forms of lanterns, post lights and wall mounted lanterns that serve as both functional and stylish illumination for the home.


Within outdoor traditional lights there is a lot of variation in styles. Traditional style outdoor lighting can be influenced by American Colonial style, English lighting and European outdoor lights. These traditional styles all have craftsmanship, attention to detail, fine design and ornament in common. These flourishes are what distinguishes traditional outdoor lighting from other styles.


Outdoor traditional lighting can be used wherever outdoor lights are needed. Outdoor traditional style post lights can mark the end of the driveway, outdoor hanging lights can illuminate a traditional wraparound porch or portico. Outdoor traditional wall light fixtures beautifully illuminate a door or garage door for security and safety at night.


The Arcadian Home collection includes outdoor traditional lights by such leading designers as: Craftmade, Designers Fountain, Hinkley, Kichler and Troy. For additional outdoor lighting, browse our wide selection of outdoor and landscape lights.

The Golden Lighting Jefferson traditional outdoor wall sconce, seen here, is a handsome outdoor wall light perfectly suited for traditional style architecture.

Traditional outdoor lights like these are inspired by antique coach lights. Traditional outdoor lighting, including wall sconces, post lanterns and outdoor hanging lights, feature attention to detail and classic materials one would come to expect in traditional design. Other traditional decorating elements like urns and brickwork complement the traditional style of the outdoor wall lights on this home.

New Customer Review

looks nice but inadequat mechanically

This is a very nice outdoor fixture, but it fails to work properly, 1st the screw shell holders are brittle and crack easily, and for some odd reason the bulbs keep burning out , i've only had this fixture for a couple weeks and i already had to change 3 bulbs,and the nuts that hold the fixture to replace bulbs are too small and easily get lost. I will say everyone does compliment on it.
