Though old fashioned, lamp post type of outdoor lighting continues to be a favorite, especially with vinyl pergolas. There are many designs in outdoor patio lighting of lamp post type, ranging from European to Oriental to modern.
The choice of lamp post is perfect when the idea is to complement a specific theme, or to get out of the monotony of a regular patio layout. If the patio is a wide design then stand alone lamps are preferred, though the downside to that is that it takes up more space.

Before You Begin…

Freestanding pergolas are very popular for pool areas, hot tub covers, or that special place in your backyard.
