Restaurant owners know that popularity and the success that follows it depend not only on the menu but also on the atmosphere of the place — the feeling patrons get when they walk through the door. At Bogart’s Restaurant & Tavern in downtown Waynesville, North Carolina, the owners have worked carefully to create a casual, family atmosphere with a menu noted for its flame-grilled steaks, soups, and salads. They also recently updated their lighting to include some unique textured metal pendants that add a definite rustic flair to this popular spot.
The owners chose three different styles of pendants from our Apartment Lighting collection. These pendants have the flexibility to be simply plugged in or they can be hard wired permanently in place. The Textured Metal Ribbed Pendant, shown on the left above, is a handsome bucket shaped pendant with a faux green patina finish that gives it a gently aged appearance. Its 15″ wide shade, suspended from a black cloth cord, throws plenty of light onto the tables below.
On the right above, is the Distressed Metal Hammered Hanging Pendant which also features the faux patina finish and brings a dash of industrial styling to the space. The hammered surface and fluted edges add texture to this light and complement the ribbed look of the fixtures over the booths. Its generous 20″ wide shade makes this cord-hung pendant a perfect choice for commercial restaurants such as this that need plenty of lighting. And like the Metal Ribbed Pendant, this fixture offers the option of hard wiring or plug-in convenience.
The third type of pendant that our Featured Customers chose is the Cultured Patina Metal Hanging Pendant, shown on the right in this photo. This fixture is characterized by a tall neck, smooth deep bowl, and industrial detailing. Together, these three metal pendants add loads of rustic style as a perfect complement to the down-home food arriving from the kitchen!
