American made. Those two little words pack a lot of pride these days. Consumers actively seek out American-made products not only because of the high quality and craftsmanship available, but because of the positive impacts that buying American has on our economy and environment as well.
For Tess in Denver, Colorado, buying American made was paramount in her search for new kitchen lighting.
“We were insistent on US made and we wanted top quality construction,” Tess says. She found Barn Light Electric during an extensive online search as she was remodeling and repainting her condo. She chose three Brewster Pendant Lights and customized them with a Galvanized... Read More
While we absolutely love when customers share pohtos of their projects with us, it’s even better when we get to revisit with old friends as they tackle new projects.
Long-time readers of the blog may remember Amy Jacobs and the Bradford Avenue home she renovated back in 2011. Amy took that home from a water-damaged nightmare to a cozy, lived-in, rustic space with lots of texture and plenty of vintage industrial lighting.
Amy sold the Bradford Avenue house to her sister and moved into a new home in a neighborhood near the popular 12th Avenue South area in Nashville. Reconnecting with contractor Brad Skipper, Amy has created yet another showstopper of a home,... Read More
It’s cooling off just about everywhere here in the U.S. and we even enjoyed a dip in temps this weekend thanks to the season’s first cold front pushing through. We relished the 79-degree high on Sunday, and lows in the 60s had some people hunting for sweaters and boots!

From the very beginning, Barn Light Electric has been built on the foundation of honoring original barn lighting styles while updating these traditional fixtures with modern touches.

Although summer is my favorite season with its laid-back schedule and warm, sunny days, I do love college football in the fall. It’s a season for cheering on my favorite team, noshing on nachos, and spending time with family and friends yelling at the TV. We’re funny that way.
Whether you have a dedicated game room, a man cave, or just a comfortable living room to entertain guests this fall, adequate lighting can help set the mood. Perhaps some new pendants over the island will jazz up your space or an industrial-style chandelier over the pool table will not only improve your game but give your room a fresh look.
