Murray Feiss Outdoor Lighting Review: Lanterns, Sconces, Pendants,

Updated on January 13, 2015

Murray Feiss Exterior

Murray Feiss outdoor lighting forms an eclectic department that includes most types of fixtures (chandeliers a notable absence) and lamps the brand manufactures, all adjusted for the exterior.

This division also boasts the lantern – a new lighting category designed especially for the outdoors; lanterns prove to be as flexible as some of their interior counterparts, being able to function as pendants, and as wall or pier/post fixtures. They also mark the advent of yet another aesthetic influence – this time of Chinese and Japanese lights.

Outdoors sconces and ceiling flushmounts differ from their indoors kin by two chief characteristic. First, they show more color, which is a way to adjust seamlessly to the usually darker palette of the outside walls. Second, and perhaps more important in terms of utility, they feature more robust frames, clearly designed to provide another layer of protection from possible knocks or adverse weather effects.

Murray Feiss created separate collections for most of their lanterns. Stylistic versatility inevitably leads to a richer selection: the company offers over two hundred of different pendant, wall, and stationed lanterns.

  • Such models as Baton Rouge, Castle, and Outdoor are manufactured in classic country, regency, romantic, and baroque styles, and display a stout metal frame holding the glass, and a cap with a weighty crown on top. Wall fixtures add an elaborate, scroll-work enriched, fixture, while post/pier based variations opt for simple (with some exceptions) but reliable attachments between the stem and the light.

  • In Mission Lodge and Lighthouse collections Murray Feiss employ more straightforward and contemporary design, going for cylinders or box-like shapes for the body of the lantern. Classic, familiar visuals.

  • Arts&Crafts and Victorian Garden lines present an interesting aesthetic transition, retaining some of the curves, but also leaning towards modern minimalism.

  • Dakota and Merrill collections displace somewhat the main body upward or downwards from the main joint, producing a hanging or towering appearance. Coupled with minimal use of metal for the frame, these two collections express

  • Industrial Moderne and Colony Bay lanterns break completely with any kind of traditional and periodical attributes, and demonstrate an ultra-modern aesthetic approach. Surprisingly, to most of us it will seem as just another unpretentious, functional light – so common and popular this trend is in today's urban environment.
