Springtime got us in the mood to revive our gardens and summer has us wanting to play. From playing in the sprinklers in the back yard, frisbee in the front, or waxing the car in the driveway–this is the time of year to engage with the outdoors. If you’re like me, the garage is ultimate hangout. Many fond summer memories were created while sipping on a glass of lemonade as I watched my dad grilling just outside.Read More

When we talk about home décor, it’s often from a woman’s perspective. But what happens when the man of the house wants a say in the decorating decisions? Depending on the man, you could end up with a pool table on the patio, a dartboard in the kitchen, and a PGA limited-edition golf ball chandelier in the bedroom. For Father’s Day, give the men in your life a nudge in the right direction with some trendy Industrial Decor from Barn Light Electric!Read More
Spring has definitely sprung in most corners of the good old USA, and it came rather early this year which is a happy bonus for the gardeners among us. Late March is usually the time when those with a green thumb are itching to get started, but it’s still a bit too early to put anything into the ground. Having these few extra warm weeks to start the season off means the bounty of fresh produce will arrive on our tables even sooner.
This charming potting area is a gardener’s dream and is actually located in the corner of a garage. Although for some, a potting area is little more than an old table with room to start seedlings and repot flowers, this space has some beautiful detailing such as the handy pegs to hang tools, wainscoting on the walls, the apron front sink, and plenty of storage space below. The industrial style stool is also a nice touch. This stool is very similar to the new line of Industrial Factory Stools that Barn Light Electric launched just a few weeks ago. Created from designs straight from the Machine Age of the early 20th century, these stools were first manufactured when American steel production went into high gear and furniture took on a sleek, efficient look. These backless stools are perfect for so many different spaces including kitchen bars, study areas for kids, and, of course, the garage or workshop.
The Backless Stool is American made exclusively for Barn Light Electric from high quality steel. The fixed seat measures 13″ across and is made of solid black walnut. The stool can be finished in classic black, vintage galvanized, or barn red for a retro look. We also offer the Industrial Factory Stool with a back which features a solid black walnut swivel seat and can be finished in the same black, galvanized, and red finishes.

When we celebrated our fourth year in business just over a week ago — check out the birthday blog — we promised another exciting year of new products and great design ideas. Well, it didn’t take long! Barn Light Electric is proud to present our newest offering in our Industrial Decor Collection — the Industrial Factory Stool! Straight from the Machine Age of the early 20th century, our Industrial Factory Stools embody a timeless design. In the 1930s and 40s, when American steel production went into high gear, furniture took on a sleek, efficient look. These sturdy industrial stools, crafted from the finest materials available at the time, were often found in laboratories and factories and even in schools. Today, these stools, offered in both a backed and backless design, will complement almost any home style from a country cottage to an urban loft.
Manufactured exclusively for Barn Light Electric by MAKR Carry Goods, these vintage industrial stools are crafted entirely from steel with updated proportions and can be customized to suit your style. Try the classic black finish or the rustic galvanized for a traditional look or try our bold barn red for a fresher, updated feel. These finish colors are available only at Barn Light Electric!
Stools are a great option for a home or office because of their size and portability. It’s easy to grab a stool and move it to where you need it at the moment. The fixed seat on the backless design measures 13″ across and is crafted from solid black walnut. At 28″ high, this stool would tuck neatly out of the way underneath the kitchen island bar or by a work station when not in use. The backed design also measures 28″ from the floor to the seat and is just over 37″ high overall. The backed seat is a swivel model and is made from the same solid black walnut as the backless design.
Celebrate a classic American time period with a genuine, American-made vintage industrial stool for your space!
