Barn Lights: How Do I Customize Thee? Let Me Count the Ways!

So you find a really sweet barn light, but it’s a pendant, not a gooseneck light. And you really need a gooseneck for the garage. Twelve boxes of pendants but no goosenecks in sight.

Wait, what? Why are you at the big box store when you can find the perfect barn light right here and customize it to your heart’s content?!

Today, we’re going to show you one of our most popular shades — the Old Dixie — and the many different ways you can customize this RLM-inspired fixture to suit your taste and your space.

Let’s start with that RLM notation. Customers often ask what that means, so here’s a quick explanation. It originally stood for reflector light microscopy, but today it is understood to mean reflector luminaire manufacturer. These retro-style shades are patterned after the deep bowls favored by factories back in the early 20th century because they cast light downward onto work surfaces. Today, those of us interested in minimizing light pollution also favor these shades because they are dark sky friendly.

Our Old Dixie shade has a classic RLM shape with its deep bowl that houses the bulb. Here we have a Old Dixie Gooseneck Light customized with an 11″ shade, Galvanized finish, and G17 arm.
