People who start a business from home tend to start small. The owners of Barn Light Electric, in fact, started with little more than a laptop on the dining room table and a barn full of vintage fixtures. But there comes a time when a business requires dedicated space with ample storage, room to grow, and, of course, good lighting!
Jamielyn Nye is the owner and managing editor of I Heart Naptime, a site that helps women get their creative juices flowing for those precious afternoon hours when wee ones sleep. For several years, Jamielyn ran her business from a small desk in her bedroom, but in a recent move to another state, she decided to take over the dining room and create a full-fledged studio/craft room/office.Read More
The words “location, location, location” may bring to mind a home perched on a mountaintop with a stunning view. Or a beer-and-brat stand right outside the gates of a university. Location is everything, especially in commercial operations, and the recent opening of Shiloh’s Steak and Seafood right here in our hometown of Titusville, Florida, bears witness to that.
Located on the scenic Indian River, the owners of Shiloh’s recently remodeled a former restaurant and focused on bringing the idyllic view front and center so patrons could enjoy not only wonderful fare, but also the fresh breezes, boat traffic, and wildlife cruising by outside.Read More

When you use the term barn light, some people may only think of RLM warehouse shades. After all, this is the commonly used term to describe the quintessential warehouse shades that were first crafted back in the 1930s. But this photo brings a whole new meaning to the term!
These beautiful rustic chandeliers are found in one of the barns at The Pavillion Farm, located in North Salem, New York. Though less than an hour from New York City, this state-of-the-art hunter/jumper facility is clearly a world away. The barn is constructed of wall-to-wall yellow pine and features 22-foot ceilings. Highlighting this space are rustic chandeliers much like our 3-Light Industrial Chandelier The Chappel. This rugged, American made fixture features three cast guard and glass lights that can be finished in your choice of 19 finish colors. Several stem mount sizes are available and you can choose clear, frosted, ribbed or amber glass to give your chandelier a distinctive look. Rated for wet locations, this fixture would be right at home in the barn, on a porch, or in a workshop.
The same cast guard and glass look can be had in a two-light industrial chandelier called The Partnership. This 23″ wide fixture can provide plenty of light in a smaller space but still has loads of rustic charm. For larger spaces or commercial venues, consider our 4-Light Industrial Chandelier The Bottom Line or a 6-light version dubbed The Factory Overhead. Both of these rugged lights provide a distinctly industrial look with their cast guard units attached to a patchwork of stems.
And even though the holiday wrappings are out with the trash, you can still take advantage of our Holiday Sale!
