Featured Customer | Sassy Industrial Pendant Lights Perfect for Playroom
Who says industrial lighting can’t have a bit of sass? Not this L.A. resident who recently turned his existing garage and storage room into a bright, fun, and creative space for his family. Zack envisioned a multi-purpose room that provides ample space for his two daughters, ages one and three, while also serving as a lounge area for relaxing and entertaining friends. “We installed sliding doors so the space could open onto the back patio where we often gather for outdoor dining during the summer months,” Zack says. The space also includes an office which is concealed behind sliding barn doors. ... Read More

Pro's Corner | Curvaceous Goosenecks for Jersey Pool House
When interior designer Alexa Ralff was searching for lighting for a project on the Jersey Shore, she remembered a wall sconce she had purchased previously from Barn Light Electric. “I used a sconce from Barn Light Electric in a powder room and I couldn’t get over the quality,” Alexa says. “Solid, beautifully crafted, amazing customer service.” Alexa’s current project was a 250-square-foot house with a surprise in the back yard — a long, narrow swimming pool with a pool house. The clients, a family of five, wanted a tiny home that could serve as party central where they can catch summer tennis on TV, nap on the couch, or sip a...

Featured Customer | Customized Gooseneck Barn Lights for New Barn Home
Building a new home is a juggling act with a sequence of events that can play out in a number of ways. Some people buy a lot and build, then sell their current home. Others sell the current home and rent until the new place is move-in ready. Out in Sagle, Idaho, Nancy and Gary purchased a five-acre lot in a new development for their dream home. They decided to build a 1600-square-foot barn that will serve as both a shop/garage and as a guest house. For now, the barn is home until the couple build the main house next spring. ... Read More

Capturing the Wow Factor with Minimalist Lighting
I just returned from the home of a friend who happens to be an interior designer. As you might expect, her home is drop-dead gorgeous with every detail in perfect placement. It’s not that her space is chock full of décor, but rather, she has taken a more minimalist approach and thoughtfully selected pieces to include in her contemporary farmhouse. For those who eschew a minimalist style as cold and uninviting, I would urge you to take another look. While minimalist styles of lighting have clean and simple lines, they can also be visually striking enough to make a statement. It’s the small details in these fixtures that provide the ultimate wow factor. ... Read More

Featured Customer | Enamelware Dishes Add Pop of Color to Mornings
If you missed this post last week, it’s worth a look. Our friend Erin, who writes The Sunny Side Up blog, chose the Drake Retro Desk Lamp for her son’s room and the results are fabulous!

As Erin browsed the Barn Light Electric website looking at lamps, our 12-Piece Dipped Enamel Breakfast Set also caught her eye. ... Read More
