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.Read More
Our products are our passion, but it’s hard not to pick favorites. Join our staff as they select some of their favorite Barn Light Electric goods for this special series of curated collections.
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.”
As a long-time fixture in Barn Light Electric’s graphics department, she has gone from a simple admirer of all things vintage to having a deep appreciation for the historic design of these products. “My style has always lent itself towards a vintage aesthetic (thanks mom for dragging me to all those antique stores every weekend as a kid) but working here has allowed me to refine my style.”Read More
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!
While you pass around the bubbly, be sure not to spill on this Rivera Champagne rug! And nostalgia will be sure to abound to the tune of “Auld Lang Syne”— especially when you’re counting down the seconds with a vintage inspired clock like the Lille Tin Wall Clock. The conclusion of 2012 will be a night to remember!

If you adore industrial style, rustic home accessories like the Round Vintage Utilitarian Wire Baskets, Industrial Factory Backless Stool, and Flush Mount CGUs are items that should be on your wish list!
And what is Christmas without nostalgic traditions? Children will enjoy leaving out cookies and milk in these Enamelware Cups and tracking the moment of Santa’s arrival will be a breeze with vintage timekeeping! Don’t forget to leave a little light on for old Saint Nick with a Mig Pendant and Edison bulb!
Sugar and spice…Makes a great combination for snicker doodles, ciders, and holiday potpourri. But what about living rooms designs? This is the perfect time of year to play around with warm hues and sprinkling white accents keeps the design fresh and relevant.Read More
