Professional's Corner | Barn Lights Offer Sophisticated Rustic Vibe
Design trends get a lot of play in January as we try to figure out what’s hot and what’s cooling off. One trend we see holding steady is the rustic/modern blending of both old and new elements. Our friends at Wolf & Wing Interior Design embrace this style and often use barn lights to add a classic but clean look to a space. The design team recently transformed a turn-of-the-century space that once housed a shoe store into a modern restaurant with plenty of rustic elements for interest. Located on the South Shore of Long Island, the restaurant, called Flight, is casual and comfortable but with a more sophisticated atmosphere than other area bars and... Read More

Featured Customer | Industrial Lighting Creates Retro Atmosphere for Brewery
Like many craft brewers, Sherry Stead got her start with a home brew kit. For almost 20 years, Sherry tinkered with her home brew recipes much to the delight of her family and friends in Homer, Alaska. Last May, Sherry and her family realized their dream of opening a local brewery which includes an industrial styled tasting room. “The Grace Ridge Brewing tasting room is located in a new building,” Sherry says. “I wanted to create an industrial look that used metal and wood with a retro feel.” Because the tasting room has a very tall ceiling, Sherry searched for industrial pendant lights to accent the space. ...

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!

Highland is celebrating its 24th year in Asheville, North Carolina, a city that often lands on Top Ten lists for craft beer fans.

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

Porcelain Enamel Pendants Offer Vintage Style, Modern Options
Much of our inspiration for barn lights comes from the vintage designs of the 1930s and 40s.

One of our most popular barn pendant lights is the Ivanhoe® Sinclair Porcelain Pendant. Based on an original RLM warehouse shade, this simple, industrial style pendant features a shallow bowl shade with a rugged porcelain enamel finish. ... 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...
