Why Choose Copper and Brass for Outdoor Lighting Fixtures

Our lighting design team is often asked: Why choose copper and brass for outdoor lighting fixtures? In addition to its natural beauty, copper and brass are ideal for outdoor lighting fixtures because it will never rust or corrode. Have you even seen a piece of iron or steel that was left out in the elements too long? Rust and corrosion quickly destroy aluminum and iron left out in the elements, particularly in damp environments.

For example, if you live near the ocean, you would not want to buy just any type of outdoor lighting. The salt air from the ocean can oxidize and destroy light fixtures made from cheaper materials such as aluminum. Only certain outdoor lighting fixtures like solid brass are recommended near the ocean.

When copper outdoor light fixtures or brass outdoor light fixtures are left out in the elements it will last for decades while developing a beautiful natural patina.

When you choose carefully, your outdoor lighting can last forever and our designs work beautifully with any architectural style.  All of our lanterns are made from copper and brass in our Mesa, AZ factory just outside of Phoenix and Scottsdale. You can choose any style, size, and finish.

How To Use LED Bulbs with Copper Lanterns & Outdoor Lighting

One of the most common questions we get is can I use LED light bulbs with my copper lanterns or outdoor lighting?Patrice Wall Sconce  Yes, you can use standard LED light bulbs!  Why use LED Light Bulbs?

  • Energy Efficiency: LED Light bulbs emit very little heat. When compared to other lighting options LED lighting uses far less energy. Compared with a 60 watt light bulb, LED bulbs use a tenth of the energy of incandescent lamps. CFL lights fall somewhere in between but still use more than double the amount of energy of LED.
  • Long Life: LED light bulbs last about 50 to 100 times as long as an incandescent bulb. They also last about 5 to 10 times as long as a fluorescent light bulb .For example, if you purchase an LED decorative bulb today 2015 you should not need to replace it until……
  • Safety: LED bulbs do not contain potentially harmful gases or chemicals. CFL bulbs can contain mercury which is a neurotoxin.
  • Low Heat: LED Light bulbs emit very little heat which is an important consideration in warm climates or anywhere air conditioning is being used.
  • Value: The prices are becoming more reasonable every day. LEDS are a good long term investment. You do not need to purchase or change bulbs for years.
  • Sustainablity: Incandescent bulbs are going to be discontinued because they are not energy efficient. Compact fluorescents will also be discontinued because they are not environmentally friendly.  Led’s provide better light output and look more like incandescent than compact fluorescent.
Pentimento Lighting does not sell light bulbs but we are happy to refer you to an online source to purchase the lamps that you need for your lanterns. We suggest your local hardware store or  Please take a look at a few of our favorite custom lanterns using LED light bulbs at  Need more help? Feel free to contact us at
