Owning a successful business means putting your merchandise or services in the best possible light. That does not translate into simply flooding your space with as much wattage as you can afford.
Whether you own a retail boutique, a casual eatery, or an office supply store, your commercial lighting plan should help customers maneuver safely through your establishment while easily taking in all you have to offer in an inviting atmosphere.Read More
One of the best things about this blogging gig is that I get to meet and work with other bloggers. I’ve met some incredibly talented people, both in person and online, who share their spaces, their ideas, their inspirations, and even their failures online every day for the world to see.
One of my newest friends is Amy Johnson of She Wears Many Hats. I love the blog name and I’m sure many of us can certainly relate to it! One of Amy’s most recent projects is the renovation of a vacation home she and her husband found nestled in the gorgeous mountains of western North Carolina. They have been slowly but surely remodeling the home doing much of the work themselves.Read More
When a friend was looking for a place to hold a wedding, Mary and Randy of Titusville, Florida, came to the rescue. They opened up their home and tropical garden setting to the happy couple for both photos and vows. In the months leading up to the wedding, Randy busied himself running electricity to the garden area so that lights could help brighten the evening event. Mary and Randy were very familiar with Barn Light Electric, their hometown lighting store, so they started purchasing lights to spruce up their garden and porch.Read More
With sales promos clogging up my inbox and Christmas carols blasting in every store, that can only mean one thing. Well, OK, maybe more than one thing.
What it does mean is that winter is just around the corner! And after all the merriment and mayhem of the holidays are over, in less than three weeks mind you, we will have to contend with all that Mother Nature dishes out with the coming of the season.Read More
Sometimes a garage just isn’t big enough for all the stuff of life. From gardening tools to bikes to various holiday decorations, the items that can’t stay stashed in the living room need to find a home somewhere. In an effort to actually park the car in the garage, some homeowners opt to build a shed. These outbuildings run the gamut from simple to stunning, but classic gooseneck lighting is a must have!
Susan, an avid gardener in Arkansas, already had a shed in her back yard but it was in dire need of remodeling. New siding, paint, and trellises on either side of the structure gave the shed new life and an American made Original™ Warehouse Gooseneck Light was the crowning touch.
“I have a country garden/farm theme in my backyard and the gooseneck barn light enhances that theme,” Susan says. “One of the best things about the light is that I was able to match it to the hardware on the door with both color and finish.” Susan’s new light features a 12″ shade and is mounted with a G15 gooseneck arm in a matching Textured Black finish.
Over near Atlanta, Amanda backed into her garage putting her renovation efforts into high gear. Amanda chose the All Weather Gooseneck Farm Light Wall Mount in a Black finish. This fixture is part of our line of Discount Barn Lighting which offers both high quality lighting and affordable prices.
“I chose this barn light because it was a little cheaper than some of the similar choices, but still had a custom look,” Amanda says. “I wanted to enhance the traditional look of my house, reflect my family’s style, and not look like every other house on the block.”
For an even bolder look, don’t miss our classic Goodrich™ Porcelain Enamel Gooseneck Lighting collection which features a shiny, tough-as-nails finish that is simple to clean and will never fade or corrode!

It’s beginning to look a lot like… Autumn, my favorite time of year. I can finally justify my daily cardigans and jeans because at a crisp 74° degrees, why wear anything else? We’ve managed to sample every pumpkin spice themed coffee in the office’s vicinity and confession: I’ve splurged on a pumpkin-themed set of candles that will (hopefully) last the season. Autumn is one of the year’s finest seasons. No wonder everyone is “falling” for it. Here are eight ways autumn has captured our hearts…Read More
