Savannah, Georgia, is one of those cities that just oozes southern charm and happens to be home to our good friend Joel Snayd of Rethink Design Studio. Joel works with both residential and commercial clients in the Savannah area with a focus on showcasing each client’s personality through design. We featured some of Joel’s work in a blog last August where he used the All Weather Gooseneck Farm Light for a home on Tybee Island. Today we take a peek at a lovely dining room that Joel created featuring some beautiful rustic sconces.Read More
Who says post mount lighting can’t be dramatic, artistic, and functional all in one? This row of soaring lights prove that even a simple rustic fixture combined with an avant-garde base can take post mount lighting to new heights! Located on the 760-acre campus of Florida Gulf Coast University, the state’s newest institution of higher education in Ft. Myers, these post mount lights complement the impressive entrance to the Lutgert School of Business. These lights are powered in part by the university’s 15-acre solar field featuring photovoltaic panels that tilt and rotate as they soak up that famous Florida sunshine throughout the day.Read More
While many of us dream of an island getaway place that features palm trees and sugar white sands, there are other islands on this planet that offer the seclusion, serenity, and peacefulness we seek. On Salt Spring Island, which lies near the southernmost tip of British Columbia, Canada, a secluded, one-room cabin serves as a simple yet restful respite from the everyday world. Its sleek design melds perfectly into its rugged surroundings with cedar-lined ceilings and floors, a tiny kitchen, and outdoor shower. And though rustic, the outdoor shower features hot water thanks to a propane tank and a cozy woodstove offers plenty of heat just a few steps away.Read More

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!

Variations of this style can be seen all over the America today. While there are many elements that make up the French Country style of decorating, the result of each space is warm, casual, and always welcoming.Read More
