I needed to light up my garden at night to keep track of the dogs, but did not want the glare of a normal post light across the patio, so the Dark Sky feature is important. I also use 12v LED bulbs which are standard size, so I can use low voltage wiring without concern of having an Electrical Contractor install the wiring, and save on electricity also as they are on all night.

This is one of the few Dark Sky certified lights out there for a post. Everyone is pushing dark sky but no one is making it. I think this will work well as we live in a rural area.

my town has adopted building code for the dark sky protocol and i think this barn style conical shade looks pretty cool, kind of a farmhouse retro yet modern look.

We live on Lake Huron and we didn't want the light to interfere with the night sky, but illuminate the steps.

The down style lighting I think is more appealing; especially less glare at night.
We are purchasing these to match a set purchased several years ago.

Is their a larger size in this collection for a post light?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am sorry, there are no other size options available in this collection.
Which post goes with this this lamp?
Ann Marie G on Jul 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The manufacturer does not make a post in the Aspen Bronze finish. They recommend the Heritage finish direct burial post or post with base. It is a slightly darker bronze. Or, you can select one of our bronze finishes as well. If you plan on installing this post directly into grass or into the ground you will need a direct burial post. If you plan on installing on concrete or another hard surface, you will need a post with base. Below you will find some options from our selection.

You can also special order the Minka Lavery posts through us by calling 1-800-782-1967. Any of our lighting specialists will be happy to assist. I have included the Style numbers for the Minka Lavery direct burial post in the Heritage Bronze and the Minka Lavery post with base in the Heritage Bronze.

Perfect for our needs
We used these lamps for soft lighting in a backyard patio area - replacing a blinding flood light. We used the companion wall-mount lamp by the back door and the post-mount lamps at intervals along the patio. We cut the 84" accessory posts in half, then anchored them in cement 18" into the ground to achieve more of a path lighting effect. The 60 watt capacity bulbs, with the light downwardly directed is easy on the eyes and provides better pathway/area lighting than the typical lower watt pathway lights. (Of course better illumination of the entire area would be achieved with higher post mounting.)
It is so pleasant to sit outside and enjoy the evening with friends in the soft light.

Pros: Area Of Illumination, Easy To Change Bulb, Attractive Design, Weather Resistant

dark sky lighting
These lights (I now have 5 including two wall mount) are great quality, easy to install, attractively plain (especially when lit) and do just what they are supposed to do - direct the light down without "polluting" the night sky.

Exactly what I wanted....
I set two of these lights on the 84" posts set into the ground so that 56" were above grade. At that height, the lights perfectly illuminate my patio, flower bed and surrounding area, WITHOUT shedding light into our eyes. With 60 watt bulbs, they give very nice lighting and are still not too harsh. Of course, lower wattage can be used for more of a mood setting. Extremely pleased with the ease of installation and apparent quality.

Clean LInes
I installed matching post light and house lights. the style is simple and coordinates nicely with my 60s ranch.
I liked the idea that it is night sky friendly.
The lamps were very affordable yet still had style; much better than the inexpensive builder grade for just a little more.
I found it very bright with a normal incandescent bulb so I found a round bulb that didn't protrude as far below the shade of the lamp for a cleaner look.

Pros: Easy To Change Bulb, Very Bright, Weather Resistant, Attractive Design, Area Of Illumination

Best Uses: Walkway, Front Yard

Great Light for our Boat Dock!
The lamp is rated for a 60 watt bulb, I found a 40 watt bulb to be plenty of light in our boat dock situation. Since the lamp is open to the bottom, I recommend using a Shatter Resistant Bulb to limit the possibility of weather from effecting the bulb.

Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Change Bulb, Area Of Illumination
