Our tips: Light up your outdoor space

What’s the ideal outdoor light? While perfectly chosen lighting emphasizes the architecture of your exterior space, some well-chosen points of outdoor light will add their own stamp and charm to your summer evenings!

Tip 1: Have lots of different points of light

As indoors, it’s good to have numerous direct and indirect light points. Ideal lighting: LED fairy lights along a wall or railings, a wall light on the wall, lights in among the plants to add relief and an extra cordless lamp to light up your summer evenings!

Solar lighting
The most ecological

With solar lamps, sunlight is turned into energy and stored in a battery.

If the beginning of the week is sunny and it rains at the end of the week, the stored energy will enable you to use your lamp at the weekend.

With Maiori, solar lighting is just as good as traditional lighting!

Thanks to a latest generation monocrystalline solar panel, some Maiori lamps can reach 300 lumens, which will easily light up your garden.

Maiori tip: The removable solar panel!

To facilitate charging, the solar panel on the lampshade can be removed to be placed on a windowsill without having to move the whole lamp!

Durable design!

“Our materials are designed for exterior use. Our lamps are designed using aeronautical aluminium, treated against corrosion. We use Batyline cloth by Serge Ferrari: a favourite durable textile for the garden.”
Javier Serrano, Maiori
