When Hélène of Pointe-Claire, Quebec began remodeling her kitchen, she wanted the various new elements, fixtures, and pendant lighting to respect the history of her centennial home.
“I wanted all of the new features to be in unity with the rest of the house,” Hélène says. “It is quite old. When I dig deep enough in the garden, I find horseshoes!” Hélène was striving for a country chic look but also the unpretentious, warm feel of a French farm. Hélène chose Barn Light Electric’s 12″ Ivanhoe® Sinclair Porcelain Pendant in a Graphite finish with a white canopy and polished nickel socket with a knob switch. Based on original 1930s designs, the Sinclair Pendant follows a simple industrial style with timeless appeal. Like all of our porcelain enamel lights, the Sinclair is American made with a baked-on porcelain enamel finish meant for a lifetime of use. Hélène also chose the black cotton twist cord for her new pendants for even more vintage flair.
“I love the twisted cord which gives the whole thing a more ancient look,” she says. The Sinclair can be easily customized with four shade sizes to choose from and 11 shiny and durable porcelain enamel finish colors including our newest offering — Delphite Blue.
“I like that the lights blend in nicely and give lots of light on the table,” Hélène notes. “I loved the fact that I could choose from many colors for each of the lights and I was even able to chose the kind of wiring that best met my needs.” Hélène found Barn Light Electric after an online search and was pleased with the reasonable pricing and shipping rates to Canada. As she sips her morning coffee each day, Hélène is happy with the results of her remodel.
“The lights are classic and not too fragile or precious looking,” she says. “Industrial chic meets the farm from my dreams!”
