3D Lighthouse Door Pull – Created For L.L. Bean
L.L. Bean knows Maine. One of their best selling shoes, the Maine Hunting Shoe®, is even named after the state. So when they needed some new door pulls for a new retail center, they looked to their state for design ideas. Maine, commonly known as The Lighthouse State, has over 60 lighthouses along the coastline and people come to the state specifically to tour them. So the decision was made to create a set of lighthouse door pulls for their doors. Working with our designers, the company designed these 3D lighthouse pulls full of detail.
This door pull features pieces that are raised away from the surface of the main handle. The widow?s walk and the gallery deck railings are built as walking decks, above and away from the surface of the lighthouse, creating great visual depth. The stones of the lighthouse building itself are raised and textured instead of just being created with the finish. The lighthouse is slightly tapered as most lighthouses are, and the cupola at the top extends just enough to cover the widow?s walk. The color palette was kept very traditional with mainly neutral colors until the bright red cupola top. The beauty of true lighthouses is captured in these pulls and deserves a spot at one of Maine?s homegrown businesses. Bring a little bit of Maine home with you with a set of lighthouse pulls for your own doors.

Design Inspiration – Maine Lighthouses
Maine is commonly known as The Lighthouse State for the over 60 historical lighthouses spread out over 5,000 miles of coastline. One of the most famous lighthouses in the state is the Portland Head Light in South Portland. This lighthouse was built by the authorization of George Washington when Maine was still included in the state of Massachusetts. The construction was completed and the tower was lit in 1791 and the original tower still stands with only minor construction changes. The light has been lit almost constantly the entire life of the lighthouse, with exceptions during World War II to prevent German submarines from using it as a homing marker.
