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
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.

When this homeowner approached the New York firm of Crisp Architects about fulfilling his dream of a London style pub in his basement, he knew exactly what he wanted right down to the tiniest detail. From the full bar highlighted by brass railings and a stained glass window to a high-backed booth and plenty of tables and chairs for pints and poker, this cozy pub transports the homeowner and his guests to another place. A small fireplace, low ceilings, and dark tones add to the cozy and casual atmosphere as does the barn chandelier casting light onto the pool table.Read More
What do you do with a basement that’s dark, chopped up into small spaces, and mostly unused? These Portland homeowners turned to the pros — Erin Davis of Mosaik Design & Remodeling and Jenny Guggenheim of Fig Studio to transform their wasted space into a game room and guest suite complete with kitchenette and industrial style barn lighting from Barn Light Electric.
“Our main focus was to remove walls to let natural light into the basement while also updating the space in a style that fit the entire family,” explains Erin. “They’re fun, practical, and colorful. We personalized the space with sports memorabilia and travel-related items, two activities they enjoy as a family.” With the room now opened up, Jenny tackled the sports-related section of the project.
“I wanted to bring in the feel of an old-school gymnasium and the Old Dixie Cord Hung Pendant in a galvanized finish with a red cage fit the bill,” Jenny says. “From there, I found the Factory Overhead Industrial Chandelier and knew it would be perfect over the foosball table. We’ve received so many positive comments about that light. It’s really a great focal point in the space.” Both Jenny and Erin worked hard to bring a sense of lightness into what once was a very dark space. All of the finishes they chose help reflect and carry light throughout the space.
Over a multi-purpose table near a bright window, three industrial bare bulb pendants continue the industrial chic design. These are the Indy Industrial Pendants, a very versatile fixture that can be effective when hung in groups such as this.
“We knew all of these fixtures needed to be very well made since they were installed in a basement space with lower ceilings,” Jenny explains. “We were impressed with the craftsmanship of Barn Light Electric’s fixtures. When you’re standing no more than two feet away from the fixture itself, craftsmanship is a high priority.”
