Katrin, of Berkeley, California, had been playing with the thought of a barn light above her aluminum, frosted glass garage door for quite awhile.
“I wanted something modern, but not too modern,” Katrin explains. “I have always loved the concept of mixing very cool and modern items with something more traditional. I wanted something that would have some warmth to it.” When she searched online for barn lights, she discovered Barn Light Electric’s website.
“It was one of the first to come up and definitely the only attractive one,” Katrin says. When she saw the Astro Wall Sconce, she knew she’d found the perfect fixture to improve the curb appeal of her garage. The American made Astro features a wide, flared shade that has clean lines and provides plenty of light. Available in three shade sizes and more than a dozen durable powder coat finish colors, the Astro can be customized to complement almost any décor. Other options include a wire cage or cast guard and glass for a more vintage look. Katrin chose a White finish for her Astro.
“I chose the White to pick up on the modern theme. It reminds me a bit of those modern Danish light fixtures,” Katrin says. “It sheds a lot of light and I’m thrilled that everyone is telling me how great it looks and how unexpected it is to find such a light fixture in this context. It adds a wonderful eclectic touch to my modern house and I love that it’s made in the USA!”
The Astro is one of our most popular shallow bowl shades and comes in a variety of mounts including the Astro Stem Mount Pendant, the Astro Gooseneck Light, and just in time for Earth Day, we offer the Astro Cord Hung LED Pendant which offers a highly efficient, environmentally friendly LED module to save both energy and money.
