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.
After settling into the Sea Star Cottage, the ladies started unpacking the boxes of lights and accessories that made the trip from Titusville. This cottage was built in the early 1930s and is full of original heart pine... Read More
If you’re thinking about sprucing up your home this spring but your bank account has little wiggle room for that enameled lava stone counter top you’ve been eyeing on Houzz, consider making a statement with new lighting instead. Switching up your lighting is an easy and relatively inexpensive way to give your space a whole new look.

“These lights give a nice pop of color to complement our style and help separate the kitchen and living areas,” Ken says. He... Read More
The men of Springfield, Missouri, are looking a bit more stylish these days thanks to the recent grand opening of Hudson Hawk Barber & Shop on West McDaniel Street. “Stay sharp” is the mantra at Hudson Hawk which has the look of an old time barbershop complete with rustic wood and painted brick walls and the requisite barber pole out front. But there’s a modern industrial twist to this masculine space where patrons can get a hair cut, a hot towel shave, and have their shoes shined, plus choose from an array of American made products such as sunglasses, ties, and personal care products.

Deep bowl warehouse shades are popping up all over from industrial farmhouses to urban restaurants to airport gift shops. These beautiful shades not only bring a focused beam of light to the surface where they hang, they become an integral design element of the room itself. While large pendants are stylish and functional and can make a dramatic statement in a room, they may easily overwhelm a smaller space.
For those who love the deep bowl style but prefer a smaller shade, we introduce the Fargo Stem & Loop Pendant, now available along with the Barn Light Fargo Pendant as part of our Barn Pendant collection. The Fargo packs all of the style of a deep bowl shade into... Read More
