Behind the Scenes | Celebrating Fathers at Work
The bombardment of ads for watches, wallets, and World’s Best Dad t-shirts must mean Father’s Day is right around the corner. That special weekend when we celebrate the fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, and father figures in our lives with cookouts, cheesy gifts, and lots of love. On this Father’s Day, Barn Light Electric is celebrating four special pairs of employees on our team — three fathers and their sons plus a father and daughter who work side by side each day handcrafting, finishing, assembling, and shipping our American-made lighting. ...

When Sammy lived in the heart of Manhattan, everything he needed was close at hand. But after growing up and living in the Big Apple for many years, Sammy was ready for a change.

Fast forward almost two years and Sammy is right at home on the Space Coast of Titusville.

Custom Made Barn Lights | Stylish, Affordable, Efficient
My college economics professor was dead on when he preached “You get what you pay for.” His words popped into my head when I spotted this poor little barn light. It’s certainly seen better days. This basic barn light probably looked like a steal to the homeowner. A cheaply made import that cost more to ship than manufacture, this fixture can be snapped up for less than $40 at the big box store. ... Read More

Behind the Scenes | Putting It All Together in Assembly
If you ordered a new gooseneck light, pendant, or maybe a chandelier during our recent Holiday Sale, rest assured it’s being handcrafted with care by our team of skilled craftsmen. Every light we make starts as a sheet of metal carefully spun on a lathe to create the desired shape. From there, the raw shade is carted off to the prep area where the metal is prepared for the specific finish it will receive. Barn Light Electric offers custom copper and brass finishes as well as durable powder coat finishes. We are also the only lighting company in America creating beautiful porcelain enamel finishes for both lights and dinnerware. ... Read More
