One of the most basic functions of good lighting is to establish a mood within a space. And I’m not talking candles or a dimmer switch on the dining room pendants. The mood is set not only with the illumination but with the fixture itself, and nowhere is this more important than in commercial operations. When customers and employees enter your building, you want the lighting to be functional and to set a tone for the environment that makes customers feel welcome and employees feel happy!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.

The unique blending of the rustic feel of a farmhouse with the sleek lines of the industrial look are what attract so many people to the industrial farmhouse style.
