Professional's Corner | Gooseneck Barn Lights Top Off New Rooftop Bar
How do you top being Asheville’s first legal brewery since Prohibition, bottling up to 10,000 cases of craft beer per week? You go even higher with a rooftop bar! Our friends at Highland Brewing cut the ribbon on a new open-air space this summer complete with gorgeous views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and equally beautiful gooseneck barn lights! Brock Ashburn, of Ashburn Builders, created this new space which sits atop the brewery’s event center. Highland is celebrating its 24th year in Asheville, North Carolina, a city that often lands on Top Ten lists for craft beer fans. The new bar has a rustic industrial feel that, in spite of summertime temps, has... Read More

Featured Customer | Rustic Ceiling Lights Add Old World Feel to Historic Lakefront Resort
In last Friday’s post, we visited Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey, where a vintage ceiling fan is turning heads at the Main Lake Market. When Alice Szigethy and her husband purchased the property in 2014, it was in dire need of help. “This site has a rich history beginning in the 1880s when there was a dance hall, restaurant, picnic grounds, and hotel,” Alice explains.” Although closed during the Depression, the site was reopened and, at different times, featured an amusement part, roller rink, and later, a tavern. In the 1960s, a luncheonette called the Windlass opened which grew into a full-service Italian restaurant. ... Read More

Rustic Chandelier Lighting Ups the Ante for Multi-Light Fixtures
Getting pictures from our customers is even more exciting than getting a letter in the mail. Like a letter written with a pen. On real paper. That kind of exciting. Whenever I see an email pop into my inbox, I often glance at the file size even before I glance at the sender. Those 15 and 20-megabyte messages are guaranteed to hold treasure! Today’s treasure came, not in an email, but from our Facebook page, which is another great source of photographic treasures. Our friend Judd at Salem Woodworks in Plymouth, Michigan, shared this pic of his new, solid cherry harvest table topped by our Mercury 8-Light Chandelier. With eight guard-and-glass fixtures on an...

Featured Customer | Nautical Chandelier Anchors Fish House in Virginia
One of my favorite finish colors in our ever-expanding palette is the Cobalt Blue. It’s brilliant and bold and reminds me of sitting at the ocean’s edge with my toes in the sand. Tony Stafford, executive chef and owner of Ford’s Fish Shack in northern Virginia, is also smitten with the hue. He has used it throughout his two restaurant locations and, in particular, during the recent remodel of the outdoor seating areas. ... Read More
