Owning a successful business means putting your merchandise or services in the best possible light. That does not translate into simply flooding your space with as much wattage as you can afford.
Whether you own a retail boutique, a casual eatery, or an office supply store, your commercial lighting plan should help customers maneuver safely through your establishment while easily taking in all you have to offer in an inviting atmosphere.
Commercial lighting must also be durable, energy efficient, and long lasting. Porcelain enamel lighting fills all three of these requirements plus it comes with a wide range of customizing options to complement any brand.

So you know all about the power of porcelain enamel — it’s super shiny, highly durable, and is easy to keep clean. It will never fade even in direct sun, and the coating of porcelain enamel glass over the steel shade prevents corrosion. When compared to other finish options for lighting fixtures, it’s hard to beat porcelain. And while we offer a beautiful palette of colors to choose from in our line of porcelain enamel lighting, perhaps you’re looking for something with a little more personality than a solid color.
Two of our most popular porcelain fixtures — the Ivanhoe® Sinclair and the Ivanhoe® Conoco — are both available with a... Read More
When you find a design element you love, you return to it again and again.

Jana picked another Benjamin® Bomber Porcelain Stem Mount Light for her dining room which replaced an older light fixture. She went with a generous 17″ shade and customized the mounting with an 18″ stem in a Brushed Aluminum finish.
