When we turned the corner into 2012, we promised that this year would be full of new and exciting things from Barn Light Electric! Today, we are proud to launch our newest line of classic American made lighting in our New England Barn Light Collection. This line of fixtures are Colonial-era reproductions of lights that were used in the early 1800s. Two of our favorites are onion lanterns which were often found aboard fishing schooners and put into service as nighttime working lights. The design was popular because it was virtually unbreakable and the flame was protected from the wind and rain.
The Yarmouth Orb Lantern and the Marblehead Brass Lantern both honor the days of oil-lit lamps with their functionality and timeless beauty. The Yarmouth Orb comes in a 12″ size with clear or optic glass which mimics pumpkin ridges. The Marblehead comes in four sizes ranging from 8″ to 12″ and offers the same glass options as the Yarmouth Orb. Five traditional brass finishes are available.
Two more classic colonial fixtures are the Barnstable Carriage Lantern and the Hyannis Barn Light. The Barnstable is a pagoda-shaped lantern that comes in one and two-light versions just like Paul Revere’s while the Hyannis Barn Light is a lantern that mimics the shape of our perennial favorite — the barn light. Both are available in traditional antique finishes.
Two new chandeliers now have a home in our Vintage Chandelier collection. The Providence Flush Mount Chandelier is a perfect, three-light accent for small rooms or hallways. It measures 10″ and comes in five antique finishes. The Mystic Seaport Chandelier is a larger option with six lights and will lend an elegant touch to any dining room or living room.
Want a touch of New England in your entryway? Check out two new flush mount offerings that can handle tight spaces with loads of charm. The Chatham Globe Light is full of nautical style with its decorative galley bandings and the glass is easily removed for cleaning and bulb replacement. For an even slimmer profile, look at the Falmouth Entry Light for hallways, closets, or any tight space that needs light. The Falmouth comes in two sizes and has several glass options including clear, seedy, frosted, marine, caramel, and white.
