They pack a lot of culture, sunshine, and absolute fun into the seven square miles that make up our nation’s southernmost city. While Key West, Florida, is known for many things, the history of the place is particulary fascinating. Cuba may come to mind when you think of cigar making, but Key West was once considered the cigar capital of the world shipping more than 62 million cigars annually. In the late 1800s, there were more than 80 cigar factories with hundreds of workers living in small conch houses. One of these houses, severely damaged by fire in 2011, was recently rebuilt by today’s Featured Customer Mark who shares with us why he chose gooseneck barn lighting to honor the history of the home.Read More
It’s a short but scenic, 4.5-mile ride over the Bay Bridge to cross from Annapolis to Kent Island, Maryland, but it is truly a world away. Maryland’s Eastern Shore is dotted with farmlands, forests, and quaint small towns like Oxford which is home to the Preservation Green Horticultural Center. This center is a working studio built last year under the guidance of Philip Logan, architect of record for Preservation Green LLC, and features classic porcelain enamel lighting.Read More
If you listen closely, you can hear the sound of a movement gaining steam. Whereas for many years, the price of goods reigned supreme, consumers are beginning to realize that it’s often better to pay for quality and service rather than simply buy cheap and get what you pay for. Barn Light Electric certainly understands this approach and so does the Red Oxx Manufacturing company in Billings, Montana. Their success story is a classic one wherein they care deeply about old world craftsmanship, not simply churning out products. If their name sounds familiar, we first visited Red Oxx last fall in a post where we described a remodeling project in one of their facilities.
Today, we take a look on the exterior of their building which is located in a part of town that once was blighted but is experiencing a revitalization thanks in part to this growing company. The project manager chose American-made, black angle shades to light up the doorways. These lights are very similar to our Gooseneck Angle Shade Light, part of our collection of Commercial Sign Lighting.
Our Gooseneck Angle Shade is a classic light crafted right here in America. It is available in four shade sizes and a rainbow of 30 different powder coat finish colors. One is sure to complement your commercial brand. A variety of gooseneck arm sizes are also available to give your new light just the right angle and projection away from the wall. These lights are wet rated for outdoor locations and can highlight awnings, signage, logos, doorways, and sidewalks with ease. Indoors, angle shade lights are often found on menu display boards, hostess stands, and to highlight artwork on the walls.
For a similar look with the added benefit of a long-lasting porcelain enamel finish, don’t miss the Fire Chief Porcelain Sign Light manufactured exclusively by Barn Light Electric and available in 11 of our signature porcelain enamel colors!

Though the city of Chicago burned to the ground in the late 1800s in one of the largest disasters of the 19th century, residents soon rose up and started rebuilding. One of those new homes, built in 1894, is in the Lakeview neighborhood north of the city and is home to Courtney, a hospitality designer by trade. Recently, she began renovating this historic building, and her eclectic tastes began to emerge.Read More
When it comes to exterior lighting, there are many factors to consider, but one detail that often gets overlooked is how the fixture functions at night.

He shared a picture of his new light on our Facebook page and told us about his favorite feature.Read More
