Our Top 10 Lighting Pins of All Time

We’re always on the lookout for inspirational lighting projects, and sharing them with our readers is one of our favorite things to do. Over the years, we’ve collected over 1400 images on 36 Pinterest boards. In 2012 a similar blog post on our top Pinterest photos revealed a preference for images of elegant and ornate scenes. Flash forward three years and a different trend seems to have developed.

Of the top 10 single lighting Pins of all time:

  • 9 were DIY projects or products.
  • Only 1 image was largely a “Wow, I can’t believe they did that” inspirational photo. (see #6)

What does this tell me? Pinterest is a powerful tool for the Do-It-Yourself-er. Extravagant images are fun to look at, but what really inspires people are simple and realistic projects using affordable products.

See for yourself in our Top 10 Lighting Pins of All Time:

For a few seconds, anyway.String lights quote from CBS' Chi Lan Lieu

Friday afternoon, five Pegasus Lighting products were featured on CBS The Talk’s “Must Have/Must Give” segment, showcasing the very best products to make outdoor dining easy, entertaining and exciting. We were proud to share the stage with five other amazing vendors — Plow & Hearth, Cuisinart, Juliska, RIV Audio and Zazzle.

Lifestyle expert Chi-Lan Lieu chatted with Sheryl Underwood about our 48 ft outdoor string light kit, commenting “I’ve always been charmed by these wonderful string lights. I just love these things.” But what really won her over were our solar lanterns. A day before the show aired, Lieu posted this sneak peek on her Instagram: (more…)

5 most popular blog posts of 2014

As a company, providing a positive learning experience has always been one of our main goals. Creating valuable, readable blog posts is a big deal to us, and we spend a lot of time looking back at what we’ve written to find out what worked, and what didn’t.

As we look back at 2014, one thing remains clear. Our readers continue to look to us for expert advice on things like “What are the advantages of Low Voltage Lighting?” and “How do you install LED Step Lighting?” The ever-popular “How to Layout Recessed Lighting in 4 Easy Steps” still reigns as our top blog post of all-time.

But we also like to have a little fun at Pegasus Lighting. In fact, it’s one of our guiding principles. Doing photo round-ups and design series gives us a chance to step back from the technical aspects of lighting and enjoy the remarkable things light can do. It was encouraging to see that our readers enjoy it too.  (more…)

bring the light campaign

As a part of our 15-year celebration as Pegasus Lighting, we partnered in May with Unite to Light, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing low-cost solar lighting to global communities without electricity, and were humbled to learn just how much lighting is taken for granted. Recently, Mark and Valerie Malangko sent us a note of thanks along with heartwarming photos as the lights were handed out to the students at St. Augustine’s Secondary and Technical School, one by one.
