Stem-mount pendant lights are lanterns that are dropped from the ceiling by iron rods. They are often used in multiples on porches and patios, in outdoor living rooms, or under carports — anywhere a space is covered. Stem-mount pendant lights are more stable than pendants suspended by a chain, and are preferable in wind-exposed areas. Stem-mount pendants are for electric or gas applications. Nearly 55 of our handcrafted iron designs are available as stem-mount pendant lights. Additional styles are available as chain-mount pendant lights. All of the options can be ordered as is or customized to your unique specifications, and many of our outdoor designs can be used indoors in a kitchen or foyer, for example. Solara has hundreds of styles of outdoor lights to suit architectural styles ranging from traditional to modern. Whether a European-inspired house or a contemporary commercial property, we have lighting options that accent, integrate, and illuminate. And with more than a dozen types of outdoor lighting mounts to choose from, you can use the same or complementary lights in various applications throughout a property, from driveway and landscape to carport and pool house.
