Light up your evenings in the garden or on the terrace, and bring more colors in the design of your outdoor area. Here are five outdoor lighting ideas for stylish scenery – Barlooon, Lucerna, Pharos, Balad, Mooon.
These German-made lampions are robust and weatherproof, thanks to the materials from which they are made. All the metal elements are made of stainless steel, and lampions are created of weatherproof PVC / PES. The materials are specially adapted to climatic conditions in Europe. These colorful lighting fixtures are available in white, cream, yellow, orange, and red color.
Once assembled and placed in the garden, the Barlooon lampions are a long-time companion. The recommended annual cleaning ensures that the lampions remain attractive for a long time.

Lucerna is the portable and rechargeable outdoor lamp from Ethimo. The design experience of this Italian furnishings brand and the creativity of Italian designer Luca Nichetto united and created an unusual, evocative lighting accessory. Elegant looks of this lantern generate new contemporary looks in outdoor illumination.
With its waterproof illuminating body containing LED lights, battery and recharging system, and a blown glass diffuser, Lucerna is a lantern designed in a contemporary style with a ‘nomadic’ spirit. It can be moved around easily, depending on where it is needed. Therefore, it can play the role of the floor lighting fixture or table lamp, and it can also be hung up, thanks to a special ring on the top of the lamp which acts as a handy grip or decorative hook for hanging from above or on a wall.
Lucerna comes in both a portable, rechargeable version with built-in batteries and pull-out cable, and with a fixed power cable. The part in an anodized metal can have a brushed steel or brass finish, while the glass is available in three refined, delicate colors: smoky, anthracite grey and amber. Created as an outdoor lighting element, it also gives a decorative touch to gardens and patios, thanks to its amazing light effects.
The inspiration for this designer lantern comes from the Lucerna or oil lamp – the most widespread form of illumination in ancient Roman times, acting as a functional light that was easy to position and move from one room to another, and also useful in delivering messages. Lucerna is a modern ‘message carrier’, suggesting a new way of lighting up and enhancing today’s exterior spaces.

Alongside the Lucerna lantern design experience, product designer Luca Nichetto has created a new lighting solution for Ethimo that brings the traditional streetlamp concept to contemporary outdoor living – shedding light on contemporary architecture. Pharos is a streetlamp that’s inspired by the decorative style and characteristics of the historic cast-iron streetlamps, typical design elements commonly seen in the most important cities of nineteenth-century Europe, such as Paris, London, and Venice.
In its contemporary makeover, Pharos has an LED light source, slender, minimal, streamlined form, and elegant, essential design. Produced in coated metal with a matt finish and in two different shades, this exterior lighting fixture comes in two different heights (140cm and 200cm), in order to satisfy the illumination requirements of public or private gardens and terraces.
The minimalist design and creative inspiration from the past times meet up in Pharos with functionality and light efficiency, giving contemporary gardens and terraces a more personal, authentic image.

Mooon! is both the indoor or outdoor lighting fixture, that can play the part of a mood lighting or a bedside lamp, and looks equally well on a table, pedestal table or on the floor. It’s a great companion for sociable meals and gentle evenings alike. Inspired by street lamps in the 19th district in Paris, this modern and chic lamp, designed by Tristan Lohner, offers fluid lines and creates a harmonious balance between color and material.
This table or floor lamp is made of an aluminum frame and a polyethylene diffuser. Speaking of its functions, there are two lighting temperatures – a cool white (6000°K) and a warm white (4000°K) – and a dim’up and dim’down function so you can switch it on and off gradually. This inspirational design piece is available in several colors of the Fermob color palette.
