Beautiful, Damp-rated Lighting Fixtures
I don’t know about you, but the first word that comes to mind when I think of damp-rated light fixtures isn’t always ‘beautiful’. Generally, I’m thinking more functional design.
So when I saw Arteriors’ new line of damp-rated lighting fixtures, I was truly excited. Damp-rated chandeliers, pendants and sconces that are just as beautiful as their interior counterparts. Brilliant.
When the Arteriors team noticed that more and more Designers were requesting lighting fixtures that could be used in covered patios and balconies they decided that it was time to change things up.
The clever crew started with their best-selling pieces, redesigning them to meet the damp-rated criteria while maintaining the integrity of the designs themselves. Arteriors’ lighting designs are loved by designers worldwide because of their attention to detail and creative aesthetic. Bringing the interior light fixture design to moisture-prone spaces opens up the design possibilities like never before.
You may be wondering; what exactly is a ‘damp-rated’ lighting fixture? A damp-rated lighting fixture is one that may be used in an exterior or interior location subject to moisture and condensation. These types of fixtures are perfect for use in bathrooms, indoor pools, utility rooms, covered patios and balconies.
The lighting is given a damp-rated ‘stamp of approval’ because of the type of material used, the finishing (e.g. extra lacquer) and the socket and wiring. All of these elements come together to make the Arteriors damp-rated products ready to take on those moisture and condensation prone environments!
The Arteriors team also mentioned that now whenever feasible, their new lighting introductions will be damp-rated.
“Just because it is damp-rated, doesn’t mean it can’t still look beautiful and interesting.” -Christopher Sawyer, Arteriors
The inspiration for these striking fixtures comes from travels all around the world… the Arteriors team is constantly gleaning inspiration from everything and everywhere (credit ashley). From man-made architecture and art to nature-made crystals and trees. Their artisan factories around the world lend a different perspective which results in a hand-touched allure and appearance!
