Since I am a preteen of the 1990s, I think of “First Knight” when I hear Camelot. My mother associates Camelot with the Kennedys. Hinkley Outdoor Lights named their collection of outdoor lights, Camelot, to inspire the feeling of romantic castles and suspense of court intrigue. Is Lancelot faithful to his King but in love with Guinevere? This traditional outdoor lighting collection includes more than the two wall lanterns pictured above. The Camelot family of lighting fixtures share features such as beveled glass, a black finish and a traditional design.
In the 1995 movie, “First Knight” Julia Ormond’s character had to choose between King Arthur played by Sean Connery or Knight Lancelot played by Richard Gere. When I think of the King Arthur, Knight Lancelot and Queen Guinevere story I think of heartbreak, broken friendships and the luxury of marriage for love. Too much drama? Well, it wasn’t until modern times that women could marry for love. During the Camelot of the Middle Ages, marriages were political and economic arrangements. Hinkley Outdoor Lights’ Camelot outdoor wall lights are sure to spark conversation about King Arthur and what your neighbors think of the alleged love affair between Lancelot and Guinevere. Juicy gossip! So what if it’s a 6th century rumor?
