Why We Love Pineapple Light Fixtures
You may know it as a perfect tropical treat, but since colonial times, pineapples have been a symbol of hospitality, friendship, and warmth. In the southern states, they are common on doormats and outdoor fixtures adorning homes as a welcome to friends, family, and neighbors. Pineapple light fixtures add a whimsical yet sophisticated touch to any space, with a welcoming glow that lets people know this is a place to come together and gather. As indoor lighting, these pineapple lights add a playful, tropical touch to your decor, and as outdoor lighting, their unique shapes and textures complement the natural presence that surrounds them. No matter the weather outside, pineapple light fixtures will add a sunny presence to your home, year-round.
Decor that Works Well with Pineapple Lights
Illuminate every room inside your house and every space outside your home with pineapple lights. Install pineapple wall sconces on either side of your front door to create a welcoming space, and pair them with coastal lighting to continue the island vibes inside the home in a sophisticated manner that still feels comfortable and relaxing. Or add tropical pendant lights to your kitchen, living room, or outdoor porch for a fresh and bold take on island decor. If you want your welcoming lights to be the star of the show, pineapple ceiling light fixtures make a bold statement and cast their enviable glow over the entire room. Regardless of whether you choose to make your pineapple lights the star of the show, or as a hospitable accent to your existing pieces, you’ll be impressed with their versatile shine and superior style.
Favorite Pineapple Light Fixture Finishes
Some of these extraordinary pieces are true representations of pineapples while others evoke a fruity presence in a more subtle manner. We love pineapple pendant lights with textured glass shades and detailed bronze appliques. They feel traditional without being dated. The perfect combination, in our opinion. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything to love about the fixtures with more modern takes on this delectable classic. Globe pendants with flawless petal-like adornments are reminiscent of pineapples but with perfectly implemented modern touches that keep the light from feeling too banal.
How to Choose the Perfect Pineapple Lighting Fixture
The first thing you should do when buying any light is to look at the space and decide what size and type of lighting it needs. If you want to illuminate a hallway, wall sconces are your best option. However, if you’re shopping for lighting outside the home, look only at outdoor pineapple light fixtures. This will ensure that whatever light you purchase will be able to handle exposure to the elements. Once you’ve decided what type or types of lights will suit the space, you should focus on size and then type of lighting. If your lights will be in the kitchen or used to light up a workspace, bright, task lighting is the best choice. For a piece that feels dramatic, but won’t take up a lot of space, you’ll want pendant lighting. Keep your needs in mind, and then let style guide you in your choice.
