The school bell has rung, theme parks are quiet, and the Labor Day picnic is a fading memory. The autumnal equinox must be right around the corner. Fall is a great time to think about your exterior lighting. Nightfall may come earlier but the weather is still great for outdoor activities and meals. There’s no reason to retreat to the dining room when the back porch is still so inviting. Plus there are still fireflies out there waiting to be chased!Read More

While our business was born from our love of vintage fixtures, we have grown to become one of America’s leading manufacturers of easy-to-customize industrial and barn-style lighting. We have created a wide range of options so that both residential and commercial customers can easily create a light fixture that perfectly complements their home or business.Read More

Call me nostalgic, but I miss the days when the biggest decision you faced in the light bulb aisle was whether to buy 60 or 100 watts. Have you looked at light bulbs lately? There are literally hundreds to choose from with differences not only in wattage but in color, brightness, life expectancy, efficiency, and, of course, cost.
You can find plenty of information online about what all of these differences mean, but the one thing experts agree on is that LED lighting is, by far, the most efficient and longest-lasting option on the market.Read More
