- Here at Hangout Lighting, we love to encourage you to be unique. We want you to express your style, be yourself and do something a little creative and outside the box. As a kid, I was always playing with all the different lighting in my room. I had black lights and rope lights, and all the different things set up in different ways and I loved playing with lighting in a space, and I think it made me feel like a space was my own. I come from a family of entrepreneurs, so I grew up with a lot of business and entrepreneurship in my life. So it was definitely a natural fit to combine art and making things along with business. We love that we're able to provide people with a one-of-a-kind product that's handmade and it's also at an affordable, accessible price point. Our design process is really driven by solving a problem for our customers and giving them exactly what they're looking for. All of our products can be customized. The components are something that I hand curated, and have chosen to carry as part of our design aesthetic and I get really excited by the latest products on the market. After you go on your website and design your own fixture, then the order comes through and we create a production ticket from that that outlines all of the different details and specifications. After pulling a ticket, we'll go over to a production station and start assembling the components, such as stripping the wire and attaching it into the socket and then closing up that socket and connect them together into the ceiling plate using cable grips that hold them into the ceiling plate and then we will wire them together so that everything is easily connected to a single connection and ready for installation. Once we have our cluster built and ready to go, you can install lit in a variety of ways and one of my favorites is our newest wrap brackets. We took that and wanted to make it a little bit cleaner and blend a modern and industrial style. We'll start with a wooden dowel and then we'll cut that down to size, and then stain it in the specified stain finish, let that dry and cure and then put a sealant on it. Once the dowels are ready to go, we can connect them with our industrious pipe joints which is a great combination of the industrial feel and more modern elements. Once the pipe joints and wood dowels are dry and ready to go, we will assemble them together with a special epoxy so that they are durable and long lasting. The only thing left to do is to plug it in, turn it on and enjoy a beautiful new light in your space. Having a light from Hangout Lighting is something that can transform your space. Just like you would hang a painting on the wall, a light fixture can add a unique design element that people really notice and point out. People love this because they find exactly what they had in their head and couldn't find by browsing the internet. Being able to help our customers transform their space into a place that they want to be and is representative of them being unique, that's Hangout Lighting.
