Sometimes a space just cries out for the perfect light. But when interior designer Kyle Baker surveyed the space being remodeled for Velo City Cycles in Holland, Michigan, he wanted more than just one perfect light. He found Barn Light Electric’s Sky Chief Porcelain Enamel Light — and bought 39 of them.
“I didn’t want the ceiling to be heavy, and the white enamel finish looks more light and airy,” Kyle says. “The pendants match the industrial aesthetic the client was looking for and they were on sale.” Kyle selected the 16″ shade which was part of our selection of discounted porcelain enamel lighting. These fixtures come with a standard black cord and white canopy.Read More

The cidery and taproom were created in an old book bindery in Northeast Portland that had been vacant for years.Read More

Designers love to push the envelope sometimes and take risks with interior decorating. For this kitchen renovation in Decatur, Georgia, the client couldn’t be happier with the creative work of Julie Holloway and Anisa Darnell of Milk and Honey Home. In a bold move, the duo chose some classic angle shades for over the kitchen sink. “We know they are typically used for outdoor sign lighting, but we just love the old vintage feel they give,” explains Anisa. “We needed a sconce that would have a long enough arm to stick out past the shelf over the window and reflect back onto the collection of dishes. And the angle shade did just that! It was a risk worth taking!”Read More
