Springtime got us in the mood to revive our gardens and summer has us wanting to play. From playing in the sprinklers in the back yard, frisbee in the front, or waxing the car in the driveway, this is the time of year to engage with the outdoors. If you’re like me, the garage is the ultimate hangout. Many fond summer memories were created while sipping on a glass of lemonade as I watched my dad grilling just outside.Read More
We were inspired by the folks at Northworks Architects and Planners when we discovered their beautifully refashioned Michigan barn home. While their innovative redesign has function and style in mind, it is evident that they cared about the history and integrity of this barn structure. With our roots sinking deeply into barn and farmhouse aesthetics, this space resonates with us. This Style Me Sunday we’re combining some of our favorite rugged vintage lighting and industrial farmhouse accents that will give your home, apartment, or loft a warm and historic barn ambiance.Read More
2013 is all about dazzling color palettes. Color blocking highlights the vibrancy in individual colors, and in light of our recent LED launch, we’ve been thinking a lot about industrial pendants that will perfectly illuminate these vibrant, modern spaces.
Our newest collection gives an innovative twist to our porcelain favorites. Now you can hang your stem mount Benjamin™ Sky Chief and Benjamin™ Esso with the environmentally friendly power of LED lighting.Read More
Happy New Year’s Eve Eve! We hope you’re finding a special way to welcome 2013. This Style Me Sunday is all about celebrating the glitz and glam of New Year’s celebrations.
Here, retro glam meets industrial style. The Restoration Industrial Factory Side Table makes a statement as its masculine wooden surface juxtaposes with a finely crafted Modernist Champagne cooler. Sparkling light fixtures like Barn Light Electric’s Tubular Linear Iron Chandelier look elegant year round. If you lack the space for a large lighting fixture, try a petite pendant like the Indy Pendant. You can dress it up with a variety of bulb styles, or even use a porcelain socket!Read More
As the seasons change and the fall chill beckons us to spend a little more time enjoying the outdoors, that means we also spend a little more time prepping our mudrooms for the extra use! If you don’t have the luxury of an extra entry-way mudroom, you can always incorporate these pieces into your foyer or living room to transition them into functional, stylish spaces!
Organization is key in these types of rooms. The Alaterra Shaker Cottage Bench and Coat Rack Set’s clean design is the perfect foundation for a light color palette. Just because it’s a mudroom doesn’t mean it has to look dirty!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!
