With the latest blast of frigid air to roar into the United States, it’s officially time to turn our attention inside where it’s warm and cozy. For the next six weeks in particular, many of us will be focusing on our living and dining rooms in anticipation of the arrival of family and guests for the holiday festivities.
There are many touches you can add to your home to make it feel warm and inviting. A wood accent wall, soft throws or pillows in deep colors tossed on the couch, and rustic lighting are all great choices for giving your space a comfortable and stylish look.

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,... Read More
If you’re looking for some farmhouse inspiration, look no further than Kelly’s pole barn home in northern Indiana. This is the land where Kelly’s husband’s great grandparents raised seven children and where Kelly has created the home of her dreams.

In the half bath off her new kitchen, Kelly chose some classic gooseneck barn lighting to highlight the space.
“This little bathroom was perfect because it’s the bathroom everyone uses when they visit,” Kelly says. “I grew up playing in our old barn and I collect barn... Read More
If you’re looking to infuse some industrial style into the bath, take some inspiration from our Featured Customer Fred who has a lovely lakefront home in Sparta, New Jersey. Fred recently remodeled a bathroom in his home and added rustic pendants and a rustic vanity sconce for a nautical industrial look. “I like the beach look as opposed to the cabin look,” Fred says. “And I wanted something different than the cookie cutter fixtures from the home centers.”
Fred first saw Barn Light Electric products on Houzz. He chose two of our 12″ Barn Light Blue Collar Pendants in a Medium Blue finish with clear glass and a standard white cord for the center of the... Read More
One reason the industrial farmhouse look is so desirable is because it creates a warm, inviting space that is neither fussy nor formal. The look can be easily achieved in a variety of home styles from cabins in Montana to urban lofts in Chicago. Take this beach home in coastal North Carolina for example. This space offers a strikingly simple balance of nautical and utilitarian touches that make it a comfortable yet appealing space. Our friend, Philip R. Thomas, who is both owner and builder, chose some classic rustic pendants to accent his butcher block island. The metal of the pendants complements the abundance of wood in the space and gives a nod to the coastal... Read More
