While I definitely enjoy this season’s more relaxed schedule and inviting weather, summer is a dream come true for kids. With no school bus waiting on the corner, middle-of-the-week sleepovers, and evening firefly-catching sessions, kids have countless reasons to relish the summer.
And what kid wouldn’t love having this magical tree house in the back yard? Today’s featured customer is David, from Portland, Oregon, who designed this beautiful play space at his weekend home.Read More
Earth Day is less than two weeks away and already the celebrations, demonstrations, and speeches are being finalized to promote support for protecting the environment we all share. But what happens the other 364 days a year is even more critical to preserving our natural resources.
I was looking online to see what types of things we could do as a family to help good old Mother Earth and found dozens of suggestions. Simple things like using cloth grocery bags or making your own cleaning supplies from natural ingredients are easy choices.Read More
When it came to designing and building his new home, our Featured Customer Charlie turned to the quintessential Vermont barn for inspiration.
“The design was based off a classic barn structure,” says Charlie. “Simple lines, but bold.” When he began his search for exterior lighting, he asked a friend, a timber framer in Massachusetts, for suggestions.
“When I described what I was looking for, he recommended Barn Light Electric without missing a beat.” Charlie chose four of our 16″ Original™ Warehouse Gooseneck Lights in a Black finish for the exterior of his new home. He chose a G2 gooseneck arm to provide plenty of height and projection, and he finished the arm in the same Black finish as the shade. Charlie customized the fixtures with cast guards and frosted glass.Read More
The log cabin style is appealing to many thanks to its use of rustic materials, casual styling, and abundance of wood that lends a warmth to any space. This lovely front porch not only has an inviting appeal with its rich wood tones and clapboard siding, but the use of metals adds a definite industrial vibe to the structure. We are loving the addition of the classic gooseneck barn light over the doorway which speaks volumes to the vernacular of a log cabin.
This fixture looks very much like our Starfire Radial Wave Reflector Gooseneck Light which sports a classic design from the 1930s when shades just like this one were often spotted at roadside gas stations. The rippled edge on this fixture adds a twist to the standard warehouse shade and the shallow bowl spreads plenty of downward light making it a great choice for front porches and doorways such as this as well as for garages and workshops.
The Starfire Gooseneck Light is hand spun by our own craftsmen right here in America and comes in three popular shade sizes. You can choose from a dozen beautiful powdercoat finish colors or, if you like our porcelain palette, pick one of our paint-to-match porcelain options such as Jadite or Cobalt Blue. More than two dozen gooseneck arm styles are available so you can get just the right projection for your fixture. Add some vintage flair to your gooseneck light with a cast guard and glass which can also be customized.
If you’re a commercial builder interested in LEED certifications, don’t miss the Starfire Radial Wave Reflector LED Gooseneck utilizing the very latest in LED technology from Cree, the nation’s leading innovator in LED lighting. This American made fixture comes with all of the customizing options as the standard Starfire and also includes lens and lumens options. Energy efficient and environmentally friendly!Read More
What’s inside your business walls may seem more important than what’s outside, but the exterior lighting on your commercial building is often the first thing your customers see. Your exterior style sets the tone for your business and can either turn people off or draw them through the door. For Carrie, a Featured Customer in the South Park neighborhood of Seattle, a great deal of time went into choosing the exterior lighting for her new business — the Stockbox Grocery.Read More
