The new year is swiftly approaching, which means it’s time to make some resolutions for 2014.  If you’re simply stumped on what to do, how about making the resolution to purchase quality, American-made lighting!  With the help of our staff and friends, we picked 12 of our favorite products to go alone with our 12 Day Holiday Sale!

Our Downtown Minimalist Pendants may be happiness in pendant form, but they have also caught the eye of our interior designer friend, Veronica Valencia. They are “…bold, beautiful & adorable!” She wrote in her blog post, “These colorful naked lightbulbs truly work in any design setting. You can use them solo or have a killer party with them in a collection.”

Inspired by the streamline moderne design, our Streamline Industrial Guard Sconce has become a stable in period wall lighting. Its heavy duty guard and visor makes a bold statement that, we’ve been told, adds quite the “wow” factor.


The Benjamin® Aero Porcelain Stem Mount is a staff favorite for its sleek body and stylishly flared shade. This shallow bowl pendant has made appearances on porches and dining rooms alike, showing it is not only attractive, but quite versatile.

Another staff favorite is our Porcelain Enamel WELCOME Sign. We love them so much, you will find them displayed all around the office!

12-days-fb-maven-chandelier (3)

We were thrilled to launch this captivating chandelier light this fall. The Maven’s historic appeal transcends from Medieval style lighting to rustic barn illumination with complementary elements like raw jute rope and an industrial ring and sockets.

12-days-fb-sydney-pendant (3)

Its beautiful design and easy installation have boosted the Sydney Industrial Cord Hung Pendant to nautical-lighting essential status.

12-days-fb-goodrich-bomber (3)

One of my personal favorites, the Goodrich® Bomber Gooseneck Light makes the list for its hefty size and beautiful RLM shade. In one testimonial, a customer told us: “I live only a few hundred feet from the Pacific Ocean so good build quality and materials were important in my decision to purchase this product.”

12-days-fb-copper-bowls (3)

Within the first week of their launch, our Solid Copper Nesting Bowls were a smash! Our staff loves them because they add a hint of opulence to the most humble of settings. They would make a beautiful family heirloom!

12-days-fb-graniteware-cups (3)

Playfully bespeckled, our Graniteware Enamelware Cups let you have the fun and adventurous feeling of camping while sitting in your livingroom. We have been known to serve milkshakes in them from time to time…

12-days-fb-vintage-airport-taxi-lights (3)

One of our favorite vintage finds, these Vintage Blue Airport Taxi Lights add an instant “cool” factor to any space. They were once used to direct airport traffic, and now they are mounted to create ambient lighting. It doesn’t get any more awesome than that.

12-days-fb-mig-pendant (3)

The Mig Pendant’s up-cycled acetylene shade has made it a sought-after fixture for both residential and commercial spaces. In an interview with Bareburger co-founder Jonn Simeonidis, Jr, he describes his attraction to the lights: “We use a lot of wood throughout the restaurant and the colors of the lights provide a very nice contrast against all the wood. The wood and metal items are well-worn but also well-loved.”

12-days-fb-wheeler-esso (3)

We love the Wheeler™ Esso Sconce for its compact style and chic RLM shade. From a cozy nook to an entryway, it makes a powerful accent light that adds a pop of color.

  1. hi i am very interesting of buying all my outdoor lights for my new home it is a french style home with a tan old look stucco . i have a question we didn t place the lights above thr doors and windows so the lights will be on the side of each windows and garage doors . is it going to llok good with barn light or we should go with sconces
    do you have a brochure iwith pictures of different houses with sconces and barn lights .i really like the quality of the lights thank you

  2. Hi Dominique! Thank you for contacting us! Our customer service team would love to help you out with making the best selection for your home exterior. Simply call: 1-800-407-8784!

    I think I would recommend going with porcelain enamel sconce fixtures, as that might suit your French-style home. I have also seen customers who have used both sconces and goosenecks with the same shade to light different parts of their home, and they have looked great. Hope this helps!
