Iconic, minimalist design.

Iconic design intended for residential and commercial settings where bollards are needed for downlighting.

Dark Sky compliant.

Dark Sky compliant: all light is diffused downward. Access photometric files here.

Ships with a soft white A19 LED bulb: an energy efficient, widely available bulb that can be easily replaced when it goes out.

Long lasting top grade western red cedar.

Renewable, long lasting materials: made to last with clear grade western red cedar from sustainably managed Canadian forests.

UL certified.

Carbon sink: built almost entirely of wood, which stores carbon. In contrast, metal fixtures contribute to greenhouse gas emissions associated with the mining and smelting of iron ore to produce steel.

Steel reinforced base.

Steel re-enforced base anchors to a concrete footer.

Specialty timber products

Our specialty timber products include mantels, posts, beams, decorative gable trusses, corbels, braces, overhang brackets, headers and box beams as well as pergolas and pavilions. Like our lighting products, our timber products are hand crafted to exacting standards. We source top quality Western Red Cedar, care for it by stickering it properly and allowing it to air dry, work it when it is sufficiently dry and hand deliver it to your jobsite.
