French lighting company Roger Pradier has been manufacturing high-quality outdoor fixtures since 1910 when founder Edouard-Jean Pradier launched with a line of wrought iron lanterns to supply railway companies, municipalities, and the navy.

In addition to a collection of traditional designs, the company has introduced a modern collection of pendants, lamp posts, pathway lighting, and outdoor sconces. We’re particularly taken with the company’s Faktory collection of pendants and wall sconces, which come with a 25-year guarantee against corrosion and are made of aluminum, zinc, or copper and available in several colors and configurations.


Above: The Faktory Ceiling Light is available in six lacquered aluminum colors as well as in zinc or copper (shown) and has a clear glass dome (mounting hardware is included); €554 as shown.


Above: A large wall sconce Copper Faktory Light is €519 from Terra Lumi.
