With all of the technology that pervades our lives, developing relationships with people far away is easier than ever. But nothing beats a face-to-face meeting.
When we first “met” Veronica Valencia seven years ago, she was a young designer working on the set of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. She asked oh so politely if Barn Light Electric would be interested in donating lights to the show.
We said yes and our long-distance relationship with this up-and-coming designer took flight. We worked with Veronica during the five years she designed homes and art directed on Extreme Makeover as well as on new projects that came her way.
Last January, Barn Light... Read More
If you’re in the market for some new lighting for your home or business, chances are you’re looking for something that speaks to your style or brand. Here at Barn Light Electric, we love giving customers loads of options such as shade size, finish color, cording options, gooseneck arms, and other add-ons like cast guard and glass or wire cages to create lights that are as unique as your space!
In addition to getting creative with customizing, we encourage customers to think beyond the norm when it comes to the type of fixture they choose. For example, many people choose a wall sconce to flank a front door. Or pick out a nice lamp for the... Read More

While many major details contribute to the overall industrial look of a place — including an open floor plan, concrete floors or counter tops, wood beams, duct work, or exposed brick — you can add some industrial flair with furniture, lighting, and other accessories that don’t require a major remodel.

The older I get, the more I realize Mom was right when she said, “It’s the little things that count.”
Clean sheets fresh from the clothes line. A new bowl for making chocolate chip cookies. A waggy-tailed dog who’s always happy to see you and doesn’t ask what’s for dinner.
Little things can have big effects in your home too. Spring is the perfect time to integrate new pieces into your space to change up your look without spending a lot of time or money. And since this spring is all about color after the long, dreary winter, our Veronica Valencia Collection of industrial lighting is a great place to start.

There are a few must-haves this wanna-be decorator desires for her home: High vaulted ceilings, vintage decor everywhere, clean-and-cozy furniture, and lots and lots of color! I thrive in these spaces. So, imagine my delight when designer Emily Henderson announced their new house and plans to redecorate with all of my favorite elements. Not only was her “happy, calm and surprising” scheme exactly what I love, but she revealed her mid-century home that me scooping my chin off the floor.
One thing our Coastal Community doesn’t lack is mid-century ranch homes. During the 50s and 60s, this Rocket City had a thriving population, building beautiful... Read More
There have been many exciting days in our history as Barn Light Electric has grown from a backyard workshop to more than 100 employees hand crafting our signature lighting for customers all over the world. Reviving the lost art of porcelain enamel lighting in America and celebrating the grand opening of our new manufacturing facility last fall were both major milestones.

The Veronica Valencia Collection features sleek shades with touches of rugged... Read More
