Shelter by Hinkley Lighting

The clean lined Shelter collection is a sure bet for a transitional space.

Portico by Hubbardton Forge

The ideal option for your modern portico. The mix of shapes in the Portico family--cylindrical glass, rectangular metal frames--provides plenty of visual interest for the outside of a home. The family includes wall sconces with different numbers of lights (and finish options suitable for coastal climates), and an outdoor suspension that comes with or without an open drum frame.

South Street by Troy Lighting

Rustic vibes for city or country. The rich texture and period details make South Street perfect for finishing off a cozy coastal getaway. Or bring the vacation home with a range of finishes that also works in the urban landscape. The family is small, with just a wall sconce, pendant and postmount, but makes up for it with plenty of finish options and depth of detail.

PH Outdoor by Louis Poulsen

Classic midcentury design. This family is limited in format—just a wall sconce and a path light--but the forms are so boldly iconic that no more fixtures are really needed. These pieces are on the smaller side, but stand nose to nose with larger fixtures due to their mesmerizing all-around light distribution and big design pedigree.
