In the northern reaches of Quebec, Canada, winters can get pretty brutal. At least by our sunny Florida standards! Our friends at Seulement Camion (that’s “trucks only” for non-native speakers) recently opened their new business in La Sarre and needed lights that could not only withstand the environment, but would provide a welcoming atmosphere to truck-buying customers.
The new space uses plenty of rustic elements throughout such as reclaimed barn wood walls, inviting leather chairs, and an earthy palette of browns and grays brightened with barn red accents. Industrial lighting in the form of gooseneck lights, warehouse shade pendants, and... Read More
If you’re thinking about sprucing up your home this spring but your bank account has little wiggle room for that enameled lava stone counter top you’ve been eyeing on Houzz, consider making a statement with new lighting instead.

Drawing on the classic lines of 1930s-style barn lighting, this style of pendant takes the traditional RLM warehouse shade and expands it to a deep shape that funnels light directly below. These...

Winter camping trips are a daring adventure. Freezing weather makes for the ideal opportunity to test out your fire-making and snuggling skills. Plus, in most places (especially Florida!) cooler weather means the disappearance of our peskiest wildlife, AKA, mosquitoes. Perhaps it’s the early-November holiday itch, or simply a desire to take a holiday every day, but I’ve definitely seen a rise in the indoor camping trend. What could be cozier than pitching a tent on a stack of pillows? Here’s a list of some of our favorite essentials for the next time you want to pitch a camping tent in your livingroom.
From a pillow fort to table and sheet, indoor... Read More
