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!

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.”
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
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.
For this styleboard, neutral basics like the Toss the Bouquet metallic wallpaper, the Florence Style Sofa in Chocolate Brown Wool sofa and the Vintage Curved Leg Table in polished brass create the ideal foundation.Read More
For those of you who’ve tried your hand at gardening, I’m sure you can agree that sometimes the experience is all about the accessories. While working in the shade is more tolerable than toiling in the hot sun, it’s important to have ample lighting—especially when trimming plants with sharp gardening tools. The Ivanhoe™ Aero Pendant reflects ample light to any workspace. Vintage inspired accessories like the Giant ‘Electric’ Tin Wall Clock, Canvas Basket with Handles, and Industrial Metal Adjustable Stool are stylish yet practical ways to spiff up your space.
Fortunately, if horticulture isn’t your thing, you can still use these accessories anywhere around the house!
When we shot this image at a local florist shop in Eau Gallie, Florida, we had no idea it’d create national buzz on a competition sponsored by the Queen of Homemaking, Martha Stewart. With your help, we can feature American Made Products and our vintage-meets-modern aesthetic in Martha Stewart Living magazine! All you have to do is vote for us here.Read More
