The not-so-secret recipe for the amazing food you’ll find at any Bareburger restaurant in New York is listed right on their website. Organic, grass-fed, all natural, and sustainable are just a few of the words they use to describe the fare they create every day with the help of local farmers. And the founders take just as much care when it comes to designing their restaurant spaces using recycled, reclaimed, and sustainable materials. Two new locations feature one of our favorite upcycled lighting fixtures — The Mig Retro Steel Industrial Pendant.Read More
Earlier this week, we visited with designer Cheryl Sottile in a post featuring a kitchen renovation in the Florida Keys. Cheryl infused tropical hues into the space with our Ivanhoe™ Dino Porcelain Pendant Lights in a creamy Jadite finish. Today, we cross the Sunshine State to visit another one of Cheryl’s project sites, this time in Sarasota where she tackled transforming a former oyster bar into a Mexican restaurant.Read More
Restaurant owners know that popularity and the success that follows it depend not only on the menu but also on the atmosphere of the place — the feeling patrons get when they walk through the door. At Bogart’s Restaurant & Tavern in downtown Waynesville, North Carolina, the owners have worked carefully to create a casual, family atmosphere with a menu noted for its flame-grilled steaks, soups, and salads. They also recently updated their lighting to include some unique textured metal pendants that add a definite rustic flair to this popular spot.Read More
Just outside the bustling LBJ Freeway north of Dallas lies a quiet oasis that transports you back to a simpler time. The Farmers Branch Historical Park celebrates the late 19th and early 20th centuries with restored homes, a schoolhouse, log cabins, a museum, and train depot nestled on 27 acres studded with beautiful gardens. The latest addition to the park is the General Store which allows for interpretation of local history with period music, clothing, and food on display for an interactive experience. General stores served as the commercial hub of small towns, and this facility recreates the historical detailing right down to the gooseneck barn lighting on the front porch.Read More
The two stars of A&E’s Flipping Boston series keep viewers entertained each week in their efforts to flip homes for a profit in the tough New England market. One viewer commented that Peter Souhleris and Dave Seymour “bicker like an old married couple” yet their combined talents always seem to pull the team together in the end to make a profit. In last Saturday night’s episode, a pizza shop owned by Pete, aptly called Pete’s-A-Place was nearly destroyed in a fire and the Flipping Boston team turned their design know-how on the renovation. The project, which took place over a short, seven-day time span, featured some new porcelain pendant lighting from Barn Light Electric.Read More
When we spotted the utilitarian interiors of the Barista Parlour on Zarna’s Runway, we got the impression that someone on their interior design team had a little crush on vintage-inspired pendant lighting. With its high, vaulted ceilings, exposed wiring, and masculine wood accents, this coffee shop plays up the rustic side of commercial design. You can get this look by incorporating some of these antiquated details.
Breathe new life into old nautical and state flags by displaying them as wall ornamentations. This nostalgic State of Oregon Flag would look great on display and would be a great way to infuse color into your space!
Rooms with high ceilings are ideal for creative lighting displays. In this shop, we love that they combined bare bulb pendants with old warehouse shades to reflect different volumes of light. Barn Light Electric manufactures many similar hanging pendants like the Ivanhoe™ Sky Chief Warehouse Porcelain Pendant, the Ivanhoe™ Conoco Porcelain Pendant, and the Indy Porcelain Socket Pendant. Juxtapose this industrial lighting with something more refined like the Central Park Swing Arm Sconce.
The industrial-style interiors are making the transition from winter trend to spring must-have — so start your space today!
