We’re almost three months away from Labor Day, which means it’s time to pull out your favorite white linen pants and milk glass — gotta enjoy it while you can! We’re a little partial to white because it is one of the finishes in our beautiful Porcelain RLM collection. Our collection of white accents isn’t just limited to lighting. Here’s a sampling of some of our finest white home decor accessories!Read More
When Hélène of Pointe-Claire, Quebec began remodeling her kitchen, she wanted the various new elements, fixtures, and pendant lighting to respect the history of her centennial home.
“I wanted all of the new features to be in unity with the rest of the house,” Hélène says. “It is quite old. When I dig deep enough in the garden, I find horseshoes!” Hélène was striving for a country chic look but also the unpretentious, warm feel of a French farm. Hélène chose Barn Light Electric’s 12″ Ivanhoe® Sinclair Porcelain Pendant in a Graphite finish with a white canopy and polished nickel socket with a knob switch. Based on original 1930s designs, the Sinclair Pendant follows a simple industrial style with timeless appeal. Like all of our porcelain enamel lights, the Sinclair is American made with a baked-on porcelain enamel finish meant for a lifetime of use. Hélène also chose the black cotton twist cord for her new pendants for even more vintage flair.Read More

Is there a kitchen remodel in your future? Check out this lovely renovation which took a builder-basic look with oak cabinetry and standard can lights to a stunning white space with open shelving accented by three 12″ Ivanhoe® Aero Shallow Bowl Porcelain Pendants in creamy Jadite. The Aero has a fun, modern look with a hint of industrial edginess and the soothing jadite finish really pops in this bright space. That porcelain enamel finish is one of the most durable you can buy and is a great choice for kitchens which see a lot of heat, steam, and occasional food fights if toddlers are nearby.
Our porcelain enamel fixtures are hand spun from commercial grade steel by our own craftsmen who spin the metal from a flat disc to the desired shape. Two coats of porcelain enamel glass are then hand-applied giving each shade its own unique character. The shades are baked in our porcelain enamel oven which seals the glass and gives the fixture its signature shiny finish designed for a lifetime of use.
