We follow a lot of blogs here at Barn Light Electric and one of our favs is Design Sponge. In yesterday’s D*S post on pendant lighting, Grace Bonney wrote, “When it comes to making your house feel like a home, the best investment you can make is in pieces that will remain timeless.”
We couldn’t agree more! Some of the most timeless styles of lighting can be found in our Porcelain Enamel Collection of barn lights. We have taken many of the classic designs from companies like Goodrich®, Ivanhoe®, and Benjamin®, and updated them with a wide range of finish colors and options like cotton cords, wire cages, and cast guards to provide customers with a handcrafted light fixture that will stand the test of time, not only in durability but in style.Read More
In one of the final episodes of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” Barn Light Electric was proud to supply two gorgeous porcelain gooseneck barn lights as a stunning accent for a little girl’s Texas bedroom. Shown here are the Goodrich® Esso Porcelain Gooseneck lights in a delightful Yellow finish. The Esso comes in both 8″ and 10″ sizes and a rainbow of porcelain enamel finish colors. Perhaps Cherry Red or creamy Jadite would suit your style, or if you want something more subtle, consider Graphite or Bronze.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
When it comes to kitchens, function and style go hand in hand. We love this sleek, industrial kitchen that is chock full of essentials that adjust to its day-to-day activities.
Industrial furnishings like Barn Light Electric’s Urbanization Factory Utility Cart and the Industrial Factory Backless Stool are ideal for busy kitchen and dining spaces. Utility carts like this one offer the convenience of an island while they easily move from one room to the next.
In monochromatic spaces like this one, you must consider quality products to make the space look inspired. Lighting fixtures like the Wilcox Studio Light provide ample lighting and a touch of American craftsmanship. Dark Walnut Wood Flooring may appear rich and opulent, but its dense planks withstand the toughest of treatments. It’s important to balance out your industrial furnishings with softer accessories. Playing with textures like burlap, tin, as well as fresh fruits and plants give extra life to the space.
Accessories like the Milk Tin Wall Clock and the Red Wren Tea Towels are great examples of adding personality through ornamentation. Using porcelain china like this Organic Shaped Dinnerware Set-Metallic Rimmed would make for great conversation. Not only would your guests remark on your great taste, buy you could always brag about your coordinating porcelain enamel lighting!

Who would have thought the newest interior design trend would spring from such an unlikely source? Industrial chic decor translates the heavy duty, rustic, and ergonomical objects found in factories into functional and stylish pieces for every room in the house. Start with a neutral foundation, like this Almsted rug from IKEA then add fun embellishments. Metal baskets like the perforated metal baskets, and wire baskets are practical means of storage without sacrificing design. Two industrial essentials are the Bordeaux Tin Wall Clock and the Wilcox Studio Light. These accessories look like they are fresh from the factory floor! And don’t forget to juxtapose your hard, cold, materials with soft, colorful, textiles through your furniture selection like this sofa and pillows.Read More
