April 15, 2011MCM Home Improvement: Exterior Lighting
By Sablemable aka Jan
Another project to my home is replacing the un-original exterior wall light and post lamp. I have no idea what was installed when my home was first built, so I need to find something that gives it back its character.
Lumens website, www.lumens.com, has some new lighting that would complement an MCM exterior.
The Bangle wall lamp is made by Corbett Lighting. It comes in Silver Leaf and Modern Bronze finishes, small and large sizes and will take either fluorescent or incandescent bulbs. I love this one!

A more traditional lamp of colonial styling, the Benton wall lamp by Kichler Lighting has a modern twist. The Benton comes in Olde Bronze finish and comes in small, medium, large and extra-large sizes. Incandescent bulbs only. The traditional colonial lamps were very popular with MCM home owners.

The Elm wall lamp by Hinkley Lighting also comes with a matching post light. It comes in Distressed Amber finish and in small, medium and large sizes. Incandescent bulbs only.

Although I like the Bangle wall light, it is very expensive and there’s no matching post light. I am attracted to the second light, the Benton and the Elm is no slouch, either. Nothing is final as I’m still doing research, hunting for the perfect MCM exterior lighting.
What’s outside your MCM front door, readers? Have you had to replace your lighting? Where did you find the replacement? Send photos if you got them!
