Sometimes a space just cries out for the perfect light. But when interior designer Kyle Baker surveyed the space being remodeled for Velo City Cycles in Holland, Michigan, he wanted more than just one perfect light. He found Barn Light Electric’s Sky Chief Porcelain Enamel Light — and bought 39 of them.
“I didn’t want the ceiling to be heavy, and the white enamel finish looks more light and airy,” Kyle says. “The pendants match the industrial aesthetic the client was looking for and they were on sale.” Kyle selected the 16″ shade which was part of our selection of discounted porcelain enamel lighting. These fixtures come... Read More
We love it when customers share photos of their lighting renovations with us, and when Becki Anderson of Liberty, Missouri, recently posted photos to our Facebook page, it was big news indeed! Becki’s home was featured on the cover of the Summer issue of VintageKC magazine! The feature showcased the six-month remodeling that Becki and husband Steve tackled when they bought the 115-year-old home.
The cover shot is of Becki’s kitchen where the couple chose classic Warehouse Shade Stem Mount Pendants over the island and a matching Warehouse Shade Gooseneck Light for highlighting the apron-front sink.

With the US economy still struggling six years after the recession took hold, more consumers than ever are focusing on American made products. From locally grown foods and craft beer to clothing and yes, even barn lighting, consumers are realizing that the American-made label translates not only to jobs but to an amazing range of quality products. There is even a growing movement, reported today by CNBC, among American manufacturers to create and export their products as part of a strategic growth plan.
Here at Barn Light Electric, we are proud to be the only company in America hand crafting porcelain enamel lighting. Once a staple of the lighting industry back in... Read More
Sometimes a garage just isn’t big enough for all the stuff of life. From gardening tools to bikes to various holiday decorations, the items that can’t stay stashed in the living room need to find a home somewhere. In an effort to actually park the car in the garage, some homeowners opt to build a shed. These outbuildings run the gamut from simple to stunning, but classic gooseneck lighting is a must have!
Susan, an avid gardener in Arkansas, already had a shed in her back yard but it was in dire need of remodeling. New siding, paint, and trellises on either side of the structure gave the shed new life and an American made Original™ Warehouse Gooseneck... Read More
With the holidays behind us, it’s time to stare directly into the face of winter. While we here in Florida have to put up with temperatures plummenting into the 50s on occasion, much of the country and our neighbors to the north have much harsher climates to endure. One of our recent Featured Customers needed a gooseneck light for his new workshop, and it had to be a fixture that could stand up to the blustery winter conditions in Alberta, Canada.
“It’s for a new building in my back yard, a 12 x 20 sided in cedar, that I use as a woodworking shop,” John explains. John chose our All Weather Gooseneck Warehouse Shade in a Black finish that contrasts quite... Read More
While other potential buyers didn’t even slow down when passing this house on Hazard Avenue in Rhode Island, Carrie and Chris knew immediately this was a place they could make their own.
“We purposely bought the worst house in the neighborhood with the intention of starting over from scratch,” Carrie says. “The house is more than 125 years old and we’ve been conscious of its history when making our design decisions.” One of the first things visitors see is the detached garage which also needed a facelift. New paint and a new light were in order, and Carrie chose our All Weather Gooseneck Farm Light from the Discount Barn Lighting collection.
“We... Read More
