If you’re like most people, your kitchen probably got a real workout in the last few weeks with holiday parties, family dinners, and enough baking to make Mrs. Claus proud. This kitchen looks like it would be the perfect place for whipping up some pre-New Year’s Eve goodies! Loads of vintage touches abound here with the classic subway tile, the retro containers behind the glass front cabinets, and the creamy green bowls that are just crying out for a matching jadite Ivanhoe™ Aero Shallow Bowl Pendant!
We also love the classic clock on the wall. Though we are immersed in the digital age, it’s refreshing to see an old-fashioned analog clock on the wall especially in the kitchen. Our line of Vintage Timekeeping has taken inspiration from a variety of antique clocks to offer you a choice of styles from vintage station clocks to retro school clocks. There are a range of colors to choose from including red, cream, black, and even some wooden time pieces.
The 1950s Electric Schoolhouse Clock, crafted by the Newgate Clocks company in Britain, boasts a clean modern dial and a fresh faced look that is reminiscent of the old schoolhouse design. Available in chrome, gloss black, or gloss brown, this clock will make a bold statement on any wall.
In our Vintage Clocks collection, a colorful array of timepieces is offered including the Ice Cream Factory Wood Wall Clock also manufactured by Newgate. A delight for any kitchen space, this clock draws its design from the metal original which is increasingly harder to find. This lovely wooden version, available in Antique Blue or Antique Red, makes a lively alternative.

Sam Levenson, an American humorist, writer, teacher, and journalist had this to say about time — “Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.” We think Sam must have written that on a Monday morning, not a Friday afternoon at 3:00pm when he’d been slaving in the cubicle all week! However, even Sam might be tempted to slow down and take a look at time passing on these beautiful vintage clocks. These are part of our rapidly expanding line of Industrial Decor here at Barn Light Electric in a collection we call Vintage Timekeeping. Taking inspiration from a variety of antique clocks, the Vintage Timekeeping line has a range of styles including classic, vintage, and retro in beautiful shades of cream, black, and red. You’ll also find some classic wooden clocks!
The clocks in this photo are from our Retro Collection and were photographed recently at Rocket City Retro, a family-owned and operated business that serves the Cocoa, Florida area with expert interior designing and a line of high-quality furniture. The clock at the top left is our Bullit Mantel Clock which features a quirky design that would appeal to your college student or be a great desk accessory at work. Available in Gloss Red or Gloss Black, the clock features bold, arabic numerals and a continuous digital alarm sound.
The top right clock above is the Bubble Alarm Clock which comes in Gloss Cream, Gloss Red, or Gloss Black. The bold hands and arabic numbers against the printed white paper dial make for easy reading within the acrylic case and domed acrylic lens. And the bold red clock on the bottom shelf is The Metro Clock which also comes in a sleek Gloss Black. This retro wall clock has an acrylic case that gives it’s vintage design a fun, modern twist and would look great in the kitchen or study. The dial has an aged appearance adding to its vintage charm!
