Commercial lighting is the true workhorse of the lighting industry. Commercial lights must be energy efficient, rugged enough to stand up to high-traffic areas, and fully illuminate signs, architecture, hostess stands, kitchens, display spaces, and doorways. They not only provide safety to customers but must be stylish enough to capture attention and entice those customers through the door.
Some business owners gravitate to run-of-the-mill sign lighting or fluorescent lighting to handle these tasks. We’d like to offer commercial business owners something better — highly efficient, durable lighting that is easy to customize, will complement any brand, and... Read More
Halloween may have brought out the ghosts and goblins but it also brought out a crowd in Atlanta for the opening of Gusto! Wood Fire Grill.

Rolling down the highways through the heart of the Kentucky bluegrass country, you are sure to spot an abundance of barns. Barns of all shapes and sizes dot the hillsides and farms where cattle, crops, and, yes, horses are tended each day.

The painting of quilts on barns began as a kind of grassroots, community art movement and there are thousands of these paintings all over the country. A website dedicated to the Barn Quilt Trails notes that there are about 800 barn quilts in Kentucky alone.
David lives in Danville and had the quilt painted... Read More
The finishing touch to any space can take many forms — a perfect throw pillow on a new couch, hand-crafted drawer pulls on kitchen cabinets, a stunning sign light over a piece of artwork. The finishing touch is what takes a project from simply finished to simply fantastic.
For a commercial business owner, functional and aesthetic sign lighting is often the finishing touch that brings together the many details on a façade — name, logo, awnings, landscaping — to create a cohesive look and offer a safe, inviting atmosphere to draw customers inside.
These two well-placed Frontier Angle Shade Sign Lights make sure no one passes by Nickelfish,... Read More
We love it when customers think outside the box when it comes to their lighting choices. While we offer a wide range of sizes, finish colors, and other options for customizing our American made lighting, some customers create a fresh, new look by choosing a style of light that is a departure from the norm.
Angle shade lights, for example, are a perfect choice for commercial lighting needs such as illuminating signs, landscape details, doorways, and building façades.
Our friends at Nickelfish, in Mendham, New Jersey, recently updated their exterior signage and chose the Frontier Angle Shade to highlight their new black, sandblasted signs. The angled lights provide just... Read More
