Of all the wedding details that a bride and groom must consider, the first question that comes after when is where. Will the ceremony be indoors or out? Small and intimate? Or large enough for plenty of friends and family to celebrate? The answer to Barry’s question of where was right outside the back door of his country home in Woodstock, New York. Barry works in the city but enjoys weekends in the Catskill Mountains and he knew this was the perfect venue to say I do. Barry decided to remodel his working barn with new windows, ceiling fans, and classic, American made barn style lighting to brighten up his space.Read More

Springtime got us in the mood to revive our gardens and summer has us wanting to play. From playing in the sprinklers in the back yard, frisbee in the front, or waxing the car in the driveway, this is the time of year to engage with the outdoors. If you’re like me, the garage is the ultimate hangout. Many fond summer memories were created while sipping on a glass of lemonade as I watched my dad grilling just outside.
This Father’s Day, we want to inspire you to clean our your Dad’s garage to make way for the ultimate man space. Here’s our list of man space essentials:
The first step towards an inviting garage is good seating. Incorporate unique pieces of furniture like these American-made Industrial Factory Stools for friends and family to come and linger on. Their durable powder coat or galvanized finishes and swivel tops are crafted to last.
Garage organization systems are much needed to control the clutter. A portable cart like the Sun Service Equipment Vintage Rolling Shop Cart adds nostalgic flair with its vintage engine analyzer bottom and restored wooden top. Coordinate this mobile work station with with other industrial elements like these Tapering Zinc Containers. Rugged storage containers come in a set of three: one for wood scraps, one for lawn tools, and then a catch all!
Don’t let your garage turn into a dark, unused space at night. Let it function 24/7 with proper lighting! Wall sconces like the Atomic Topless Streamline Industrial Guard Sconce may have a sleek and compact silhouette, but it is durable enough to weather high-traffic areas. For ample lighting in this space, try a shallow bowl ceiling light like the Skylark Stem Mount Pendant. If you’re looking for a utilitarian light, an 8″ Esso cord hung pendant is perfect! It’s porcelain finish will withstand bumps and damp conditions, while its cord hung mount will allow you to reposition it for your needs!
With summer in full swing, at least in our part of the planet, great minds are turning to the question of how to keep cool for the next few months. Here in Florida, the AC is already cranked up, but even with the cool air flowing from the vents, it’s helpful to have a ceiling fan. A fan helps circulate the air to make a body feel cooler and it helps save on the electric bill too. If you live in a region where AC is not a requirement once you flip the calendar to June, ceiling fans are still a bonus for every room in the house. Throw open the windows and let the fans do their duty to stir the breeze!
If you’re looking for a fan that goes beyond builder-basic, big-box store brands, be sure to check out our selection of Decorative and Commercial Ceiling Fans that offers a wide range of styles from vintage and barn style to modern. The vintage ceiling fan in this adorable bunk room is as functional as it is beautiful. Much like our Dynamic Dual Rotational Ceiling Fan, this timeless fixture offers two motor heads that can be positioned in 180-degree arcs for optimum air movement. Choose from five traditional finishes including Black, Polished Chrome, and the stunning Polished Copper.
For a smaller version of this type of fan, don’t miss the Donna Oscillating Guided Fan which provides maximum, multi-directional airflow. Great for tight or awkward spaces like laundry rooms, baths, or screened porches, this stylish fan comes in three distinctive finish colors and your choice of blade options that give it a variety of looks. It’s American made and comes with a remote control so you don’t have to budge out of your easy chair to turn on the breeze!Read More
Ah, summer is here and the livin’ is easy! While most of us still have our day-to-day lives to attend to, summer does bring on a more relaxed atmosphere with warm weather, cookouts, and longer days to enjoy friends and family. Early summer is especially nice when you can throw wide the doors and windows and enjoy a pleasant breeze. You can help Mother Nature by installing ceiling fans throughout your home to keep the air moving on a still day. While a ceiling fan will not cool your home, it does make you feel cooler thanks to the wind chill on your skin.
This soothing bedroom space is accented by our Machine Age Galvanized Ceiling Fan, part of our collection of Vintage Ceiling Fans. This eye-catching fixture takes on the rugged style of the Industrial Age with its completely galvanized motor housing and the option for 100 percent galvanized metal blades. The blades come in 42″ or 52″ sizes and in your choice of five colors including silver, maple, and mahogany. You can further customize this fan with different downrod lengths and a slope adapter.
To add even more function and style, consider adding a light kit to the fan which comes with an RLM inspired warehouse shade or a cast guard and glass fixture. The glass can be customized with clear, frosted, or ribbed glass to suit your style and space. And don’t forget a fan control so you don’t have to move out of that comfy chair to adjust the light or fan speed! A variety of controls are available including a handheld remote or a wall/remote combination.
If you love the industrial look of the Machine Age Fan, don’t miss our entire collection of Industrial Ceiling Fans which come in a variety of sizes and styles to suit most any residential or commercial space. Then chill out and enjoy summer!Read More
