Do you describe the industrial style as crisp, clean, and hard working? Or does it seem more cold, raw, and unfinished to you? No matter what your take, the industrial trend has taken the design world by storm and can be seen not only in big-city lofts but in beach-side cottages, midwestern farm homes, and in retail stores and restaurants across the country.
Industrial style has a humble feel showcasing the perfect fusion of form and function. But if you’re on the cold and unfinished side of the debate, we have good news for you. You can get the rugged, unassuming look of an industrial pendant with enough color and style to win you over in no time!

While we absolutely love when customers share pohtos of their projects with us, it’s even better when we get to revisit with old friends as they tackle new projects.
Long-time readers of the blog may remember Amy Jacobs and the Bradford Avenue home she renovated back in 2011. Amy took that home from a water-damaged nightmare to a cozy, lived-in, rustic space with lots of texture and plenty of vintage industrial lighting.
Amy sold the Bradford Avenue house to her sister and moved into a new home in a neighborhood near the popular 12th Avenue South area in Nashville. Reconnecting with contractor Brad Skipper, Amy has created yet another showstopper of a home,... Read More
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
The Lostine Tavern may not be that famous bar where everybody knows your name, but it’s definitely a mud-on-your-boots, friendly kind of place.
Tucked into the northeast corner of Oregon, the tavern was recently remodeled by partners Peter Ferre and Lisa Armstrong-Roepke.
“This space has been a tavern for 40 years and serves as a community gathering place,” says Lisa. “We cleaned her up and created an amazing casual and comfortable atmosphere with local wood for the bar top and shelving that came from an old planing mill in a neighboring town.”
For the lighting, Peter and Lisa wanted something not only fun and functional but appropriate... Read More
Although summer is my favorite season with its laid-back schedule and warm, sunny days, I do love college football in the fall. It’s a season for cheering on my favorite team, noshing on nachos, and spending time with family and friends yelling at the TV. We’re funny that way.
Whether you have a dedicated game room, a man cave, or just a comfortable living room to entertain guests this fall, adequate lighting can help set the mood. Perhaps some new pendants over the island will jazz up your space or an industrial-style chandelier over the pool table will not only improve your game but give your room a fresh look.
