We’ve got something new rolling out of the porcelain oven and guess what — it’s not a gooseneck, a wall sconce, or even a pendant! While porcelain enamel is a much sought-after finish for lighting because of its durability and high-gloss shine, what we’ve got cooking today is our new collection of Porcelain Enamel Dinnerware. Handcrafted from commercial grade steel just like our light shades, these are heavy-duty, American-made originals – don’t mistake these for lightweight, imported adaptations you may have seen!
You can bring a classic vintage look to your table with our Graniteware plates, bowls, and cups that are reminiscent of the... Read More
Though the city of Chicago burned to the ground in the late 1800s in one of the largest disasters of the 19th century, residents soon rose up and started rebuilding. One of those new homes, built in 1894, is in the Lakeview neighborhood north of the city and is home to Courtney, a hospitality designer by trade. Recently, she began renovating this historic building, and her eclectic tastes began to emerge.
“I like to integrate the old and historic with newer, modern trends,” Courtney says. The front of her home features typical red Chicago brick. The plans, created by Randall Architects, were to rebuild a set of stairs in the rear of the house that connects... Read More

You make a trip to the mall, list in hand, determined to stay focused, and look what happens. There’s really cool barn lighting everywhere! That happens to us sometimes too, and we just can’t resist snapping a picture or two to show how commercial lighting can be fun, stylish, and functional all at once. Take these handsome black sign lights highlighting the name of this store. Where other stores let the mall’s generic, fluorescent lights do the job, this business chose to add some style to their entrance.
These are much like our Commercial Gooseneck Angle Shade Light which comes in three shade sizes and more than 20 finish colors. Whether your... Read More
