An easy way to brighten up your home without going through the hassle and expense of an extensive remodeling project is to simply switch out your lighting. Maybe you never got around to exploring your options beyond the builder basic fixtures that came with your home. Or maybe the former resident had a different taste in lighting.
One of our featured fixtures during the 12 Days Sale is the Maven Chandelier. This rustic fixture is modeled after the traditional ring chandeliers that have been around since Medieval times and have influenced many modern lighting styles. The Maven features eight standard sockets mounted to a rugged industrial ring. You can customize this chandelier with one of eight powder coat finish colors or choose one of our paint-to-match porcelain colors. You can also choose either brown jute rope or white nautical rope to suspend from the upper mounting ring.
You can use any 40 watt bulb in this American made rustic chandelier but why not take the opportunity to ramp up the vintage styling with some nostalgic Edison style light bulbs. These vintage reproduction bulbs mirror the styles of the late 19th and early 20th century and cast a warm glow perfect for any meal from intimate dinners to casual breakfasts. Choose from a variety of shapes and styles to suit your space!Read More

We had a fabulous grand opening party attended by all sorts of city and county officials, townspeople, family and friends. The expansion of our facilities is great news not only for our town which was hit hard by the ending of the Space Shuttle program, but also for the overall resurgence of American manufacturing.Read More
One of the perks of working in the interior design industry is experiencing a plethora of beautiful spaces. I get really excited when our blogger, Betty, sends a customer photo my way.

When I was given the opportunity to join our design team on a photo-trip to a beautiful ’30s-era Spanish villa located in the heart of central Florida, I was ecstatic. What we love and do at Barn Light Electric is rooted in historic spaces and restored lighting, so to see our porcelain barn lights hanging in period-appropriate surroundings is the cherry on top.Read More
