The devil is in the details.
Business owners can certainly relate to that statement as there are countless details in starting and running a successful business. Commercial lighting may seem like a no-brainer, but a good eye for design (either your own or a professional’s) and easy-to-customize Angle Shade Sign Lighting can create the finishing touch that will help set your business apart from the competition.
Angle shade lighting is a great choice for commercial venues because of its versatility. Styled after gas station lights of the early 20th century and an obvious choice for exterior signs, these fixtures can also be used to highlight landscaping,... Read More
Rolling down the highways through the heart of the Kentucky bluegrass country, you are sure to spot an abundance of barns. Barns of all shapes and sizes dot the hillsides and farms where cattle, crops, and, yes, horses are tended each day.
If you’re lucky enough, you might spy a barn like David’s which sports a beautiful barn quilt painted on the side. The painting of quilts on barns began as a kind of grassroots, community art movement and there are thousands of these paintings all over the country. A website dedicated to the Barn Quilt Trails notes that there are about 800 barn quilts in Kentucky alone.
David lives in Danville and had the quilt painted... Read More
Something about being at the beach makes everything more relaxed. Even commercial businesses that set up shop near the sand and salt air have a laid-back vibe whether they’re selling t-shirts or tires. The recently opened Yellow Dog Eats Kitchen & Bar in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, offers just such a casual place to enjoy a cold beer or glass of wine and a signature sandwich. And since it’s right up the coast, our photographer took advantage and traveled up to Yellow Dog to check out their new digs.
The owner, Fish Morgan, trained at the Culinary Institute of America in New York, and while he knows his way around the kitchen, he turned to his mom... Read More
We love it when customers think outside the box when it comes to their lighting choices. While we offer a wide range of sizes, finish colors, and other options for customizing our American made lighting, some customers create a fresh, new look by choosing a style of light that is a departure from the norm.
Angle shade lights, for example, are a perfect choice for commercial lighting needs such as illuminating signs, landscape details, doorways, and building façades.
Our friends at Nickelfish, in Mendham, New Jersey, recently updated their exterior signage and chose the Frontier Angle Shade to highlight their new black, sandblasted signs. The angled lights provide just... Read More
Many business owners spend a lot of time and money on the signage and logo that define their brand. And why not? Your brand is a critical component of your business and the look that people come to identify with you and your product. But once you perfect the logo and install the perfect sign, the job is not quite finished.
Making sure the public can actually see the sign is the final step and one that requires thoughtful and appropriate exterior lighting. Our friends at Russell Automotive recently updated their logo and installed a new sign on their building in Apopka, Florida, just north of Orlando.
“We have been in business for 33 years and in this location for... Read More
As the owner of the wildly successful LuLu’s Sunset Grill, Lucy Buffett — an exceptional cook, thoughtful philanthropist, savvy business woman, and Crazy Sista to Jimmy — turned her sights on creating a new establishment that offers a twist on typical Gulf Coast cuisine. The rustic yet refined Lucy B Goode Coastal Café, which overlooks Homeport Marina in Gulf Shores, Alabama, opened last August to rave reviews.
“I wanted the restaurant to resemble the old fish camp cafes along the Mississippi Gulf Coast where my Daddy would take my Mama for cold beer and crabs after a sunset sail when he was courting her back in the ’40s,” Lucy... Read More
