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

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!
For this Arizona business, creating an industrial mood to the space was critical to owner Brady Miller. Monkey Depot features military themed action figures and die cast models, while a second business called Monkey Edge focuses on high-end custom knives and gear.
“We really wanted to go for a cross between a vintage factory and a noir era private eye office,” Brady says of his showroom. To give an industrial edge to the space, Brady chose the Factory Overhead 6-Light Chandelier for the stairwell that leads up to offices in the loft.
“We chose the chandelier because it was so cool, we had to have one,” Brady says. “And it appears a bit foreboding.” This rustic chandelier features heavy stems and thick cast guard units with a Galvanized finish and frosted glass.
In Chicago, the office furniture manufacturer Arcadia welcomes customers to its ongoing 2013 trade show display with an industrial design focus featuring Original™ Warehouse LED Pendants.
“We designed the space with a ‘sleek industrial’ direction so the Original™ Warehouse Pendants added greatly to the industrial mood,” says display designer Karen Dunbar of Inovus Design, Inc. “The scale, LED sensibility, and galvanized finish work perfectly because they combine the old industrial aesthetic with the modern technology and efficiency of the LED lamping.” These American made pendants complement the sleek look of the furniture without overpowering the other elements — exactly what good lighting should do!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.

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?

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.
