As he was renovating the historic Charlotte building in Asheville, North Carolina that would house his new Chop Shop Butchery, Josh Wright wanted to find the perfect lighting.
“I wanted to have a rustic look to the lighting with a modern twist to it,” Josh says. “Lighting is so important to a retail business to showcase your products but also to help convey the sense of style you want the interior to show.” On a visit to Asheville’s Lexington Avenue Brewery (another satisfied Barn Light Electric customer!), Josh found his lighting. “I really liked the style of their lighting, and the general manager gave me Barn Light Electric’s information.”
Josh chose the Barn Light Outback Warehouse Pendant for the interior of his new business which is a perfect choice for its location in the charming old building. The new lights complement the exposed ductwork and the details of the black tin ceiling, and beautifully highlight the glass cases full of premium meats from local farms. Outside the front door, an Atomic Cast Guard CGU Sconce welcomes visitors to this independent shop. Additional sconces are also placed underneath the black awnings that line the building’s exterior brick walls which cast a pleasant glow on the sidewalks at night.
“I really like the lights a lot,” Josh says. “I actually took the wire guard off our pendants and painted them the exact color from our logo. That set off the lights tremendously and I really love the pendants.”
The Outback Pendant and the Atomic Sconce are two of our most popular fixtures due in no small part to their classic styling and durability. These American made lights can be customized with a variety of finish and glass options to fit your style and space.
“I would definitely recommend Barn Light Electric,” Josh adds, “and if and when I open another location, I’ll definitely use you all again!”
