Was definitely pleased with the quality of the lights. I would highly recommend these for large spaces, as the brightness of the lights, length of the strand, and number of bulbs lead to quite a bit of light output. Will be putting these in storage for when we have an outdoor space that fits them and ordering lights more suitable for a smaller area.
I was looking for a vintage strand of patio lights for our newly remodeled balcony. Many of the lights I have seen used in my area and online were globe bulb strands with sockets every 12 inches and cords that were similar to Christmas lights.. We were looking for something more stylish and of a better quality so as to stand up against the elements over time. We also wanted the light to be more ambient so we were looking for black thicker cords that had sockets every 24 inches with an interesting bulb that gives off a nice light. We found quite a few options close to what we wanted but the cord was too commercial with rubber hoops above the sockets that made them look bulky. I had almost given up and was getting ready to settle for something else and then I found exactly what we were looking for on Lights.com. They arrived quickly and we hung them and love them. I was happy with the whole transaction and will be buying backup bulbs because we like them so much.
I searched online for some quality outdoor string lights that we could hang up under our pergola. I am so pleased. They look absolutely beautiful and were easy to hang. We used some cable holder pieces purchased from Lowes. They nail into wood and have an opening for the cord.
The lights look great around our back decking. The sockets and connecting wire is very sturdy. The lights were all carefully individually packed and protected by bubble wrap, too. This past weekend visiting the Bronx Botanical Garden, my wife noticed that the very same lights were on display in their outdoor restaurant hanging overhead as we dined there. Very Cool!
