Experience the newly designed Pegasus Lighting websiteSo many exciting things have happened this year – A new blog design, an appearance on national TV, and record-breaking sales — But nothing compares to what happened this week.

  • Unique lighting products that include:
    • Thorough product descriptions
    • Multiple product images and videos
    • Detailed specifications to make product comparisons easy
  • A website that is a learning experience in lighting through buying guides, tips, articles and how-to’s
  • Exceptional customer service that you won’t soon forget

And this week it happened. (more…)

Pegasus loves biodegradable packing peanuts

Earth-Friendly Packing Peanuts Invite Play

After you’ve been around something for a while, you start to take it for granted.

Things like dissolvable cornstarch packing peanuts.

It took one imaginative 11-year-old boy and an email from a happy customer to remind us just how nifty these little earth-friendly peanuts are.

“BE WARNED! The peanuts you’re about to encounter may be a little annoying, but they’re cooler than you think.”

If you’ve received a shipment from Pegasus Lighting in the past few years, your box most likely had a sticker on it with those words. Inside the box is a note that shares the reasons behind our choice to use biodegradable cornstarch packing peanuts, not the least of which is because they are really fun to play with.

Inside every Pegasus Lighting box is a notecard that explains why we use biodegradable packaging peanuts
Who uses packing peanuts anymore? We do!

As cool as they are, after a few years of using them every single day, the novelty started to wear off.

Then we received this…

Under Cabinet Lighting From Start to Finish - A GuideLast week I shared an infographic that detailed four key considerations when choosing under cabinet lighting: light source, shape, installation type and power source. Today’s post takes it a step further with a deep dive into some of our most popular under cabinet lighting resources, rounded up in one convenient place.

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.

Lights that Made us Say WHAT? – Tooshlights

Lights that made us say What? Tooshlights

Sometimes in my search for lighting news to share with my readers, I come across a new lighting product that stops me in my tracks, causes me to raise my brows and even makes me chuckle. Tooshlights® are definitely one of them.

The Los Angeles start-up recently brought to market an automated lighting system that uses glowing red and green LED lights to signal patrons when a bathroom stall is available. Quite literally in this case, “green means go.”

You can install Tooshlights in any size restroom, but the advantages really come into play in large venues like stadiums, airports, theme parks, and performing arts centers, etc. There are some nice benefits for the end-user (no pun intended) and for the venue: (more…)
