There’s a new cow in town — Grass Cow — and it’s the latest eatery designed by Studio Kiss of Sag Harbor, New York. Principal Laszlo Kiss offers architectural, construction, and green services in his practice and recently applied his many talents to the first establishment of the new restaurant chain.
“The owner has two other restaurants, one of which I also designed, but they are larger in size and menu complexity,” Laszlo says. “For the new stores, Grass Cow, the owner wanted a homey feel that was down to earth using simple materials.”Read More
The right ambiance can make or break a bubble bath experience. Confession time: How many candles do you surround your tub with hoping their warm glow will distract you from your chunky, dated bathroom accents and the fact that your tub might be a little too small for full reclining? Are you washing between your toes with dawn soap? What is your bathroom decor saying about you?
If you want your bathroom to say, “I love stylish, hand-picked home decor accents and the occasional evening of pampering” — this bathroom is for you! It’s easy to get cozy when you have the essentials like lavish porcelain tubs, bubbly handmade soaps, and rustic mood lighting! Here are our picks for a Shabby Chic Spa Bathroom.
Remember our trip to Tybee Island? We fell in love with the nautical accents and whimsical cottage styles. The beautiful bathroom in Mermaid Manor reminds us how calming a crisp, white palette can be. Our Atomic Topless Streamline Industrial Guard Sconce adds a touch of pastel and the frosted glass emits soft and soothing light. Vintage accents make this space memorable.
Ignore the time but keep the clock with this Lille Tin vintage timepiece. A Vintage Industrial Mirror makes a portable helper for your makeup routine and storage is a breeze with the Nantucket Wall Mounted Toiletry Shelf. Add a touch of nature with this Natural White Birch Forest Wall Art.
Trade in your harsh detergent for the moisturizing Betty’s Luxury Bar Soap!

2013 is all about dazzling color palettes. Color blocking highlights the vibrancy in individual colors, and in light of our recent LED launch, we’ve been thinking a lot about industrial pendants that will perfectly illuminate these vibrant, modern spaces.
Our newest collection gives an innovative twist to our porcelain favorites. Now you can hang your stem mount Benjamin™ Sky Chief and Benjamin™ Esso with the environmentally friendly power of LED lighting.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!
If you’re a regular reader of our Porcelain Blog, you probably know all about our porcelain enamel lighting. How it’s American made and hand crafted right here in our manufacturing center in Florida. How our own metal artisans hand spin the shades and hand apply the layers of porcelain enamel glass. And how the shades are baked in our special porcelain oven that reaches temperatures of up to 1,600 degrees to create that shiny, hard-as-nails finish that will never fade or corrode.
But did you know that we also make Porcelain Enamelware Cups using this very same, meticulous process? These cups are one of the newest additions to our Industrial Home Utility collection and feature the same shiny and durable finish as our porcelain enamel lights. These cups are meant to last a lifetime and can be used in many different spaces.
Kids can choose their favorite color for their very own bathroom cup. Put one on the table by the front door to hold those keys you’re always searching for. Lipstick and mascara tuck neatly into a porcelain cup on the bureau. Think outside the house and use these 4″ wide beauties to start some seeds growing this winter! Choose from the same nine gorgeous porcelain finish colors that are offered for our lights — everything from creamy Jadite, bold Cherry Red, to bright Cobalt Blue.
And while you’re looking for ways to add to your industrial decor, don’t miss out on the rest of the collection which is chock full of vintage inspired wire & metal baskets, canvas carry-alls, attractive storage containers, and mirrors. These industrial home decor accessories will bring a rugged style and utilitarian functionality to any home and you can take advantage of our Free Shipping offer during our annual Holiday Sale starting this Friday, December 21st and continuing through Friday, January 4th. Enjoy Free Shipping on any purchase plus save an additional 10% on any qualified Porcelain Enamel Lighting purchase!Read More
