Industrial wall lighting was once all about function. Warehouses and factories needed rugged lights that made the working environment safer and could stand up to the harsh conditions where they were installed. The original guard-and-glass type fixtures and vapor proof lights were designed to protect the bulb from the hazardous work environments of the day.
These classic industrial designs are wildly popular today not only because of their rugged nature, but because these handsome wall lights can be customized to suit almost any style of home or commercial brand. You don’t have to settle for basic black or galvanized anymore!Read More

The words “location, location, location” may bring to mind a home perched on a mountaintop with a stunning view. Or a beer-and-brat stand right outside the gates of a university. Location is everything, especially in commercial operations, and the recent opening of Shiloh’s Steak and Seafood right here in our hometown of Titusville, Florida, bears witness to that.
Located on the scenic Indian River, the owners of Shiloh’s recently remodeled a former restaurant and focused on bringing the idyllic view front and center so patrons could enjoy not only wonderful fare, but also the fresh breezes, boat traffic, and wildlife cruising by outside.Read More
