Lighting is always key to ambiance—and becomes particularly crucial when creating a romantic vibe. Nothing says romance like the soft, ambient light of a lantern, and the Marset Jaima Outdoor LED Floor Lamp, above, which has the presence of an indoor floor lamp, is an inspired choice for outdoor lighting. Echoing the fabric forms of North Africa's Bedouin tents, Jaima features a tactile shade that dangles over dining table from a flexible steel stem, emitting a nuanced downward glow, while gently moving in tandem with airflow. 180 degree rotation provides great flexibility for making small, mood-enhancing, adjustments.
Pro Tip: Be sure to check the UL rating of a lamp before using it outdoors. UL Wet rated lamps are suitable for spaces that receive direct contact with rain, snow and other significant moisture. UL Damp rated fixtures are suitable for settings subject to subtle moisture, like condensation.
