Climactic world events often influence our culture in many ways. The Bauhaus movement was born as World War I came to an end in 1919 and the world focused on trying to make sense out of five years of struggle, hardship, and loss. With perhaps an overwhelming desire to start fresh, designs took on a clean and sensible approach, and items that could be easily mass produced took hold as people put their lives back together.Read More
With a name like Barn Light Electric, we are your go-to source for American made, RLM warehouse shade lighting.

What you may not know is that we also offer a stunning collection of Modern Pendants for those homes, commercial venues, and other spaces that want a more contemporary look. Today’s Featured Customer browsed our collection and chose the Spheres Pendant as the perfect accent for her dance studio.Read More
It’s been a busy week here at Barn Light Electric! One of our favorite food bloggers, Sommer Collier of A Spicy Perspective, is giving away a set of our porcelain enamel bowls this week plus we got a nice plug on CNBC that featured our Solid Copper Bowls as a great American-made gift for the holidays.
So we’ve had a load of new friends popping up on Facebook who are exploring our site for perhaps the very first time. As our name suggests, we do love barn style lighting here. Rustic and rugged RLM-inspired warehouse shades are some of our most popular fixtures, however, we also embrace vintage, mid century modern, and contemporary looks too. If you’ve never browsed our vintage and modern collections, take a peek!Read More
Our love of mid-century style runs long and deep — from streamline moderne to atomic age industrial. Geometrical, aeronautical angles and emphasis on clean, simple lines take center stage in this trend and are perfect for office and organizational spaces. In our mid-century inspired office, we are taking our favorite elements of this interior design style and making them relevant for today’s home.
Every office and craft room needs a great work space. This Retro White and Gray Desk has a slim style that would look great paired with a cozy, tufted chair. It’s important to remember these contrasting accents that infuse current products — after all, you aren’t working in a time capsule!
A Storm Grey Chevron Cushion makes a bold and artistic accent.
Put your space to work by composing some thoughtfully worded letters on memorable, hand-crafted Map Stationary. Retro lighting and clocks will remind you of iconic designs and designers like the Mouille Style Eye Wall Sconce and Bullit Mantel Alarm Clock.
We’ve expanded our line of Modern Pendants! Influenced by tribal beat lights, our Diwali Modern Pendant has sculptural impact that takes your pendant lighting from “blah” to “wow.” The Madrid Modern Pendant has a classic deep bowl light shape, but its compact size makes it perfect for contemporary rooms with constricted space. Even small spaces deserve swag lighting!

Barn Light Electric’s Art Director, Lauren Mitchell, loves vintage Americana style. In her collection of rustic kitchen accessories, she notes, “I love the combination of worn and weathered enamel with ultra-modern bare socket pendants.”
Happy New Year’s Eve Eve! We hope you’re finding a special way to welcome 2013. This Style Me Sunday is all about celebrating the glitz and glam of New Year’s celebrations.
Here, retro glam meets industrial style. The Restoration Industrial Factory Side Table makes a statement as its masculine wooden surface juxtaposes with a finely crafted Modernist Champagne cooler. Sparkling light fixtures like Barn Light Electric’s Tubular Linear Iron Chandelier look elegant year round. If you lack the space for a large lighting fixture, try a petite pendant like the Indy Pendant. You can dress it up with a variety of bulb styles, or even use a porcelain socket!Read More
