After countless hours perusing Pinterest and even more time following discussion threads on Houzz, you’ve finally found the perfect barn light for your kitchen. What could be better than custom made lighting? Better than porcelain enamel? Better than made in the USA?

So where will you be at 6:28am on Monday, March 20th? Personally, I’ll be celebrating the arrival of spring! Not that I have anything against winter, but spring is my favorite season. Everything turns green again, flowers pop up, and spring training is in full swing. What’s not to love?!
I do admit to holding one grudge against winter — I abhor the darkness. Yes, it’s cozy at night when you can light a fire and snuggle with the kids under a throw on the couch, but I miss the extended hours of daylight and time spent outside.

One of my favorite things about wrapping up the year is all of the ‘best of’ lists – best books, movies, restaurants, and, my personal favorite, interior trends. But, although these best-of-home lists are full of inspiration and ideas, they’re also full of trends that are likely on their way out to make way for the new year’s next big thing.

An entrepreneur at heart, Jack Glasser was still in high school when he started Glasser Images. Eleven years later, his company has grown to include a staff of photographers and assistants who moved recently to a brand new studio in the heart of downtown Bismark, North Dakota. The new location is bigger, more modern, and offers much needed space for the growing business.
“The new space has such beautiful natural light,” Jack says. “It was an empty shell so we built out the space as we needed. The open work space helps foster creativity with natural and professional industrial lighting.” Moving from a more traditionally styled space, Jack wanted... Read More
Nothing warms our heart more than a great American success story. Barn Light Electric started in a garage where our owners rewired and refinished vintage gooseneck and barn pendant lights to sell. Fast forward a few years and today we’re handcrafting vintage-inspired lights in a 60,000-square-foot facility and shipping them worldwide.
Today’s Featured Customer had similar humble beginnings. Hayes Manufacturing started in a garage more than 40 years ago and today makes state-of-the-art drive and flywheel couplings in its Fife Lake, Michigan, headquarters. The five owners and partners recently remodeled a storage space in their plant to create an executive... Read More
