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.

Every man, whether it’s your dad, brother, uncle, or son, has space he calls his own. How about giving him some rustic lighting to dress up the space while still keep the manly feel? Rustic pendants have a great industrial vibe and were inspired by mid 20th century explosion proof fixtures. They combine function and style with their distinctive cast guard and glass designs and are fine examples of quality American craftsmanship. To achieve the look in this unusually clean garage, check out the Barn Light Atomic CGU Pendant, a flexible light fixture with dozens of options from size and finish color to glass and mounting options.

If you happen to find yourself in Cleveland, you must check out Hodges, a new restaurant owned by food truck pioneer Chris Hodgson whom you may have seen in his entertaining run on The Great Food Truck Race. Along with restauranteur Scott Kuhn, Hodgson has fulfilled his dream of owning a brick-and-mortar restaurant. Located in downtown Cleveland, Hodge’s integrates an upscale approach with the food truck style cuisine Chris introduced to Cleveland two years ago. The new eatery features a 4,400-square-foot interior with a simple decor of wood, red leather, and rustic lighting.
“We wanted something kind of industrial, kind of vintage,” explains Scott who led the design team for the new space. Faced with soaring ceilings within the restaurant, Scott chose rustic chandeliers, very much like our Industrial 6-Light Chandelier The Factory Overhead, to fill the cavernous space.
“These fixtures give the eye a break in the very high ceiling,” Scott explains. “It brings the eye down and creates its own ceiling.” With six atomic cast guard units attached to the patchwork of stems, the Factory Overhead rustic chandelier embodies a distinctive industrial appearance with its rugged look. With more than 40 finish colors to choose from, your rustic chandelier can take on any number of looks. A galvanized or rust finish will lend your fixture a classic industrial feel while one of our premium finishes such as satin steel, bright yellow, or medium blue will create a more modern look. Your glass globes can also be customized with clear, frosted, colored, or textured glass. The stem mounting comes in an array of sizes and the fixture can be flush mounted if necessary.
Like the rustic look but want something a bit more curvaceous? Check out the Industrial 5-Light Chandelier The Assembly Line which features five atomic cast guard units positioned on gooseneck arms in a tight circle. Perfect for placing over the dining room table!

We love the look of this modern kitchen with its creamy tile backsplash and the handsome dark wood cabinetry that gives us just a peek through textured glass of what’s inside. The sleek lines of the cabinet doors are uninterrupted by pulls of any sort, and the deep color of the wood is offset by the lighter counters and shiny stainless stove. A fashionable space such as this cries out for a sophisticated lighting plan over the island where guests have a front row seat to what the chef is creating. A Chandelier tends to have a more formal look than pendant lighting and are a natural choice for a modern space.
This chandelier definitely sparked our interest, however, because it has a great rustic vibe and closely resembles our Warehouse 3-Light Chandelier The Thunder, a beautiful offering in our collection of Barn Chandeliers. This classic line of fixtures is influenced by the nostalgic Railroad Era and mixes warehouse shades with distinctive western characteristics. The Thunder comes in four finish options — satin steel, galvanized, rosewood, or polished brass — each offering a slightly different look.
Need something a bit larger for the dining room table? Check out the Warehouse 5-Light Chandelier The Thunder 2. This light features five shades to provide a wider span of light and comes in the same finish colors as the three-light version plus a polished brass/copper option. You’ll never miss a trick if you hang one of these over the poker table in the game room!
All of our commercial-grade chandeliers can be chain hung or stem mounted for wet locations. In addition to the Barn Chandeliers, we offer rustic, vintage, and modern styles. If you have something special in mind, give our sales staff a call, and they’ll help you create a light that’s perfect for your space. No matter which style you choose, your new chandelier will add a great designer touch!
