Thus far, 2013 has been a barn burner, if you’ll pardon the expression, here at Barn Light Electric. In just seven short weeks, we’ve launched two new lines of rustic sconces, an entire collection of LED lighting that is loaded with both style and efficiency, extra large warehouse shades perfect for commercial applications, and the lovely Sydney shades which offer a unique uplighting feature.
If you’re like most people, your kitchen probably got a real workout in the last few weeks with holiday parties, family dinners, and enough baking to make Mrs. Claus proud. This kitchen looks like it would be the perfect place for whipping up some pre-New Year’s Eve goodies! Loads of vintage touches abound here with the classic subway tile, the retro containers behind the glass front cabinets, and the creamy green bowls that are just crying out for a matching jadite Ivanhoe™ Aero Shallow Bowl Pendant!Read More
Where do you hang your stockings? We’ve seen quite the gamut of locations. From traditional mantels, stair railings, and bookshelves to free hanging stockings–there’s something promising about these little places just waiting to be stuffed with knick knacks and candy. For today’s Style Me Sunday, we’re creating a mantel piece that will rival your Christmas tree for center of attention.
Our cozy mantel was inspired by this Faux Fireplace re-do from the The Rooster and The Hen blog. Flocked Fraser Fir Garland with a light misting of white snow looks adorable draped across the corners. Vintage inspired wall sconces like the Chesapeake Bay Mirrored Wall Sconce and the Norwalk Wall Sconce both feature Nostalgic Edison style bulbs that give off a warm, almost candle-like glow.
Michelle Fritz’s Burlap Stockings are so shabby chic and look lovely besides other vintage accessories like the Bullit Mantel Alarm Clock. We love her idea of displaying fresh greenery in the stockings before Santa arrives to fill them with goodies!
Industrial home goods like the Tapering Zinc Containers add a little edge while being practical for storing fireplace accessories. The Industrial Metal Adjustable Stool is great for extra seating, but can also be used as a mantel-side table to hold your charming Enamelware Cups.
Speaking of stockings, our 2012 Holiday Sale is still going strong for another 12 days! If you haven’t taken advantage of our free shipping, now’s the time. As an additional bonus, we’re giving you 10% off all American made Porcelain Enamel lighting fixtures. Just enter the code STOCKING12 to redeem the discount!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Barn Light Electric!

When we think of Texas, wide open spaces filled with friendly people come to mind. Although this generous Dallas kitchen is new construction, it already has the warm, lived-in look of a place that’s been hosting parties since Texans signed their own Declaration of Independence back in 1836. The stained concrete floors, rough-edged countertops, and rusted tin ceiling all give a rustic feel to the space, but the two sinks, dual islands, and plethora of work surfaces let you know this is a serious cook’s kitchen. Comfy industrial style stools give guests a front row seat to the chef’s action at the cooktop tucked on the opposite side of the island.
And with a nod to the ranch, wire basket pendants are suspended from the ceiling to highlight the cooktop space. You can get the same rustic look with our Chicken Wire Basket Pendant Lamp that features a 19″ wide shade to let plenty of light shine through and cast interesting patterns in your space. As part of our collection of Apartment Lighting, this fixture comes with a six foot, brown fabric cord with a plug so you can simply hang it and plug it in. Or, if you prefer, remove the cord for hard wiring directly into the ceiling.
To give your Chicken Wire Basket Lamp a nostalgic feel, check out our complete line of authentic Edison Style Light Bulbs. These vintage bulbs comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, and filament types including the Spiral Light Bulb, the Thread Light Bulb, and the Hairpin Light Bulb. Any of these styles will give your basket lamp a vintage vibe that will have your guests coming ’round for a second look!
