I was sure I had heard the name when I first read about the Kichler Pasadena outdoor post light. I agonized myself over it for quite some time before finally concluding that this post lamp had a ‘suburban name’. Those of you who have grown in peaceful neighborhoods in the suburbs must be well aware of what a beautiful suburban neighborhood is supposed to look like and how much warner it looks with exterior post lighting. There is a certain similarity and harmony among suburbs the world over. Their names, appearance of the houses, roads, roadside lamps, shopping malls and even families bear an unmistakable suburban identity. Being raised as a part of one such family, I grew up loving my calm and hassle-free life. No wonder why I instantly recognized and related with the suburban ancestry of this creamed glass outdoor lamp (found here: http://www.brilliantoutdoors.com/kic-49142.html). It seems to have been made to brighten those very California neighborhoods that I wandered about on my bike when I was a child. So much for beautiful memories.
