It was so exciting last week as we stepped outside the office to watch the latest rocket launch from the Kennedy Space Center. It never gets old seeing the sudden billow of smoke and the white contrail bolting skyward.
But today we’re celebrating our own launch right here on the blog! We’re excited to offer Design 101 — a new feature where we present design questions to our friends in the field and get their tips, hear their stories, and learn about what design trends they’re watching.

If you follow Barn Light Electric on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, you saw our team of photographers heading up the coast last week to Tybee Island, Georgia. The crew makes the journey once or twice a year to have a three-day photo shoot with some of our newest products. The owners and staff of Mermaid Cottages graciously allow us to use their vacation cottages as settings for the photos, and our crew always looks forward to their time on Tybee.
