We get a lot of comments each week here at Barn Light Electric and we love hearing from our customers. We get photos of lights being installed, questions about pending orders, and compliments on our incredible sales staff who help customers figure out whether a wall sconce light or a gooseneck light will best suit their space.
Occasionally we get suggestions on how we might improve not only our products but our processes. We take note of each and every suggestion that comes through our site, and we do our best to continuously improve our product offerings and ship them to every corner of the globe without damage.

When you’ve been in the interior design business for almost 20 years, you’ve seen just about everything. For Kristina Rinaldi, of Rinaldi Interior Design in New York, the demand from a contractor to come up with seven wall sconces in a day was not exactly unusual.

“We decided to go with a modern rustic design,” Josh says. “We found a pin on Pinterest and followed it to Barn Light Electric and started browsing the selection there.” They hit upon the Barn Wall Sconce collection as they... Read More

“The original house is post-and-beam, a rustic-lux style,” Lisa says. “With the addition and renovations, we added huge windows to improve our view and bring in more nature. With polished concrete floors and rustic lighting, the addition is more industrial chic.”
The couple’s home is located smack in the middle of Lake Champlain in North Hero, Vermont, where winter days can be short and cloudy. Having plenty of light options inside brightens the space and allows the family to... Read More
