From pristine to panache, vintage industrial accents make period design accessible to all. We’ve seen a fair share of unique takes on industrial lighting (remember the dolly light?) but in order to make your rustic redesigns truly inspired it’s important to keep some design guidelines in mind. Here to help explain these guidelines are some of BarnLightElectric’s frequently pinned industrial farmhouse design images.Read More
When we spotted the utilitarian interiors of the Barista Parlour on Zarna’s Runway, we got the impression that someone on their interior design team had a little crush on vintage-inspired pendant lighting. With its high, vaulted ceilings, exposed wiring, and masculine wood accents, this coffee shop plays up the rustic side of commercial design. You can get this look by incorporating some of these antiquated details.
Breathe new life into old nautical and state flags by displaying them as wall ornamentations. This nostalgic State of Oregon Flag would look great on display and would be a great way to infuse color into your space!
Rooms with high ceilings are ideal for creative lighting displays. In this shop, we love that they combined bare bulb pendants with old warehouse shades to reflect different volumes of light. Barn Light Electric manufactures many similar hanging pendants like the Ivanhoe™ Sky Chief Warehouse Porcelain Pendant, the Ivanhoe™ Conoco Porcelain Pendant, and the Indy Porcelain Socket Pendant. Juxtapose this industrial lighting with something more refined like the Central Park Swing Arm Sconce.
The industrial-style interiors are making the transition from winter trend to spring must-have — so start your space today!

What’s the first thing you see when you stumble through the door after a long week? A stack of bills on that hand-me-down side table? An old coat rack overwhelmed with clutter? Or is it just too dark to see anything because you haven’t replaced that outdated flush mount fixed to the ceiling? Foyers and entryways are high traffic spaces that often go overlooked. Who says utilitarian rooms can’t make you smile?
Style your foyer with colorful, creative accents that refresh you. Smaller spaces are perfect places to incorporate unique wall finishes. Try playing around with interior wallpaper designs like this custom Watercolor Wall Paper from Black Crow Studios.
Accessorize your room with functional and stylish interior decorations like this Oval Swivel Mirror. You’ll never leave the house with a pesky piece of pepper between your teeth when you have such a beautiful mirror to check your smile. Keep track of the time with an oversized clock like this Lillie Tin Clock!
Function meets style with this Chevron Storage Ottoman. Makes a cozy place to slip off your shoes and then hide them away! And you can never go wrong with fresh cut flowers. We love how these peach-hued rose blossoms contrast with the cool colors of this space.
A rustic pendant light like this 18″ Benjamin™ Deep Bowl Stem Mount adds some much needed vintage flair! Plus the large reflector will fill up your room with bright, welcoming light.
First impressions are most lasting… It might be time to revive your entryway a fresh and vibrant makeover.

This week’s Style Me Sunday ushers in a little summer warmth to ease your chilly winter blues. And there’s no better light than our new Sydney shades to do this! Its nautical style is reminiscent of our favorite oceanic holidays—and is the perfect fixture for this eclectic space.
Whether located in your back porch or living room, outdoor furniture like this Wicker Lane White Chair adds lots of texture and detail. Fresh foliage is another element that brings the outdoors in and enlivens your senses.
Crisp and clean cobalt blue-and-white patterns often make cameo appearances in nautical spaces, but we’re adding a little twist with this Arbre Chinois fabric. We love the way this fabric coordinates with the chinoiserie planter from the Inspiration Image without clashing with the overall look.
Looking for a fun way to display your favorite findings? Try hanging them as wall ornamentation! We love this Octopus Print from Etsian littlebluebirdstudios. And don’t forget wall sconces — Captain Ahab would be envious of this Admidships Bulkhead Wall Mount Light Fixture’s patina finish!
Fill your Canvas Baskets with Handles with shells, sea-glass, or other collectibles for a great conversational piece!
2013 is all about dazzling color palettes. Color blocking highlights the vibrancy in individual colors, and in light of our recent LED launch, we’ve been thinking a lot about industrial pendants that will perfectly illuminate these vibrant, modern spaces.
Our newest collection gives an innovative twist to our porcelain favorites. Now you can hang your stem mount Benjamin™ Sky Chief and Benjamin™ Esso with the environmentally friendly power of LED lighting.Read More
