Summertime and the Living is Outdoors!
With summer in full swing, outdoor dining spaces are getting a workout.

The more relaxed mood of outdoor dining is enhanced even more with exterior lighting that lets you linger long after the sun goes down. Our good friend and neighbor Gregory Daniel needed lighting for his grill and outside pool deck. The lights needed to be mounted to an existing wall which called for a gooseneck arm that would take the shade up higher to allow for better positioning over the grill.

Our recently expanded Porcelain Enamel Dinnerware Collection has been getting a lot of buzz lately in blog posts and social shares. The heightened interest always stirs up lots of questions! Today our sales staff share the most often-asked questions about our enamelware. Q: Can I put my Breakfast Set into the dishwasher? A: Porcelain enamel is handcrafted from commercial grade steel thus it’s very durable. And while these plates, cups, bowls and serving pieces are dishwasher safe, we suggest you avoid harsh detergents and give the pieces plenty of space so they don’t rub together during the cycle. Hand washing your enamelware, on the other hand, with a...

Enter to Win a 12-Piece Enamelware Breakfast Set
Sometimes accidents lead to happy endings. And in one case, a delicious ending! For Sommer, the creative mind and spirit behind A Spicy Perspective, an accident with cheesecake batter led to her creation of Cheesecake Dip. Which leads us to ask, “Why has no one thought of this before?!” No baking. No crust. Just dipping the good stuff right out of the bowl! Barn Light Electric has partnered with Sommer in the past as she has remodeled and updated her home in Asheville, North Carolina. Sommer’s kitchen got an update back in 2013 with some stylish LED lighting (you can read about that massive project here) and, a year later, she transformed... Read More

Gift Guides Glean Internet Offerings, Ease Stress of Finding the Perfect Gift

Many of us mall haters choose to get comfy on the couch and hit the online markets. While I don’t have to fight for a parking place (other than with the dog), the marketplace itself is daunting. Thank goodness for gift guides! ... Read More
