With three miles of uninterrupted public beaches, salt marshes teeming with birds, diverse cuisine, and plenty of casual nightlife, our recent foray onto Tybee Island, just over the bridge from Savannah, Georgia, held plenty of distractions for our photographer Lauren, and her able assistant Julie. The pair were focused, however, on capturing images of some of our newest wall sconces, nautical style chandeliers, and other items for our upcoming Summer catalog.Read More
When facing an empty room it’s difficult for many homeowners to imagine what all the different pieces of furniture and accessories will look like when everything is finally in place. It’s often very helpful to bring in a professional to offer advice on bringing the many details of a space together so that it flows well and truly reflects your own style. This master bedroom is a beautiful blend of both modern and rustic touches and was created by our friend Mary Jo Fiorella of Fiorella Design. Located in the San Francisco Bay area, Mary Jo brings an eclectic view to her clients’ projects.Read More
Happy New Year’s Eve Eve! We hope you’re finding a special way to welcome 2013. This Style Me Sunday is all about celebrating the glitz and glam of New Year’s celebrations.
Here, retro glam meets industrial style. The Restoration Industrial Factory Side Table makes a statement as its masculine wooden surface juxtaposes with a finely crafted Modernist Champagne cooler. Sparkling light fixtures like Barn Light Electric’s Tubular Linear Iron Chandelier look elegant year round. If you lack the space for a large lighting fixture, try a petite pendant like the Indy Pendant. You can dress it up with a variety of bulb styles, or even use a porcelain socket!Read More
When you use the term barn light, some people may only think of RLM warehouse shades. After all, this is the commonly used term to describe the quintessential warehouse shades that were first crafted back in the 1930s. But this photo brings a whole new meaning to the term!
These beautiful rustic chandeliers are found in one of the barns at The Pavillion Farm, located in North Salem, New York. Though less than an hour from New York City, this state-of-the-art hunter/jumper facility is clearly a world away. The barn is constructed of wall-to-wall yellow pine and features 22-foot ceilings. Highlighting this space are rustic chandeliers much like our 3-Light Industrial Chandelier The Chappel. This rugged, American made fixture features three cast guard and glass lights that can be finished in your choice of 19 finish colors. Several stem mount sizes are available and you can choose clear, frosted, ribbed or amber glass to give your chandelier a distinctive look. Rated for wet locations, this fixture would be right at home in the barn, on a porch, or in a workshop.
The same cast guard and glass look can be had in a two-light industrial chandelier called The Partnership. This 23″ wide fixture can provide plenty of light in a smaller space but still has loads of rustic charm. For larger spaces or commercial venues, consider our 4-Light Industrial Chandelier The Bottom Line or a 6-light version dubbed The Factory Overhead. Both of these rugged lights provide a distinctly industrial look with their cast guard units attached to a patchwork of stems.

Each year, Barn Light Electric holds a B.L.O.G. contest — that’s Barn Light Online Giveaway — where we ask bloggers to browse our website, pick out their favorite lights, then tell their readers why they would love them in their own home. Our 2012 first place winner was Rachel who blogs at Maybe Matilda. She and her husband are updating a mid-90s home and infusing it with their own style. Rachel is aiming for the inviting and comfortable look of a country farmhouse so barn lighting fits her style perfectly. And as it turned out, Rachel won our B.L.O.G. contest — on her birthday!Read More
