In Monday’s post, we visited with Kelly in Rochester, Indiana, where she and her husband recently moved into their stunning new pole barn home crafted by AC Builders. The structure sits proudly on the family farm where the couple grow field corn and soybeans and an old blue silo keeps watch in the distance. Kelly chose her half bath off the kitchen to bring the barn look indoors with some farm antiques and an Outback Gooseneck Light highlighting an apron front sink. Today we check out Kelly’s inviting master bath.Read More
If you love the coastal look but are landlocked miles from the sea, you can still create a refreshing retreat with plenty of maritime touches like today’s 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 some nautical style.
“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 space.Read More
While we are definitely still in the throes of winter no matter what that pesky groundhog predicted, our minds are wandering ahead to spring when flip flops and tank tops will reign supreme. This is a great time to clean out and spruce up your boat house or dock area so you’ll be ready for that first warm day. Perhaps your nautical lighting needs an upgrade? Wall sconces and pendants for wet locations need to be rugged enough to withstand the environment but who says they can’t be ultra stylish too?Read More
Today’s Featured Customer must be the most popular guy in the neighborhood. Andrew built a new barn on his property in St. Louis, Missouri, and created a bar and entertainment area that would make many pub owners jealous. The crowning touch are half a dozen vintage industrial pendants from Barn Light Electric.
“We were trying to get a rustic, country bar feel. We love to visit Nashville so a lot of the inspiration came from our visits to the Nashville honkey tonk bars,” Andrew explains. “We wanted a place where we could have friends over that would be large enough to hold everyone but still have an atmosphere.” The new barn features a 20-foot door that rolls up to offer a beautiful view of the farm. Andrew chose The Mig Retro Steel Industrial Pendant in Yellow to highlight his new bar.Read More
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.
These sconces look much like our Barn Light Atomic Topless Cast Guard CGU Sconce, a rugged, wall-hugging fixture that has its roots in the Atomic Era. With its unique cast guard and glass design, the sconces highlight each individual photograph on the wall and complement the industrial look of the chandelier over the table.
The Topless Cast Guard CGU Sconce comes in both small and large sizes and a wide variety of finish colors. Each finish color can give your sconce a different look from a shiny Polished Aluminum such as these to a bolder shade of Red, Yellow, or Blue for a more modern take. A choice of seven different glasses will also change the look of this sconce and how the light shines through.
To coordinate your lighting efforts, don’t miss the matching Barn Light Atomic Topless CGU Pendant, a 10″ high fixture that can be either cord or stem mounted. It comes in the same variety of finish shades as the sconce so you can match the finish or choose a complementary color and glass.
Both the sconce and the pendant are American made of high-quality materials. These lights are a great choice for commercial lighting venues that need rugged fixtures designed to provide years of service. Add energy-saving CFL bulbs and you’ll not only save money but spend less time on the ladder changing bulbs!
