If your outdoor living space includes a pergola, our star lighters are a great option. They bring a magical feeling to both your pergola and surrounding areas. This fixture is designed with small openings that allow light to shine through, casting a "star lit" shadow on and around the pergola. 


2. Undercap lighting

 Undercap lighting can be used to accent stairs, walls, pillars and landings, we added it to our list because we love using it around firepits it not only adds beauty too the space,  but it also provides a safety element to keep guests from trips and falls. This fixture is mounted under the lip of the firepit , and shines down toward the ground to illuminate the area around the pit.


3. Bistro lights

Bistro lights are one of our favorite lighting techniques because they provide the perfect atmosphere for all occasions in your outdoor living space. Professional bistro lights can be used with a dimmer to control how much light is put out . This allows you to choose the perfect amount of light depending on the type of gathering.
