Featured Customer | Barn Lights Offer Casual, Rustic Style
Sometimes you have to raise the roof. Not raise a ruckus, but literally raise the roof. That’s exactly what Jenny and her husband did when they tackled a gut renovation of their Millbrook, New York, home. The major renovation included an addition and rebuild of the second floor. The result is a stunning 6,500-square-foot modern farmhouse chock full of laid-back style. “We were going for a casual, rustic feel throughout with fixtures and finishes that still look good even as style trends change over time,” Jenny says. “Remodeling and design are hobbies that I love and I put together idea books on Houzz to design the spaces.” ...

Color Inspiration | Classic Black Always in Style
So who remembers the 2017 Pantone color of the year? How about 2016 when they chose not one, but two, colors of the year? Anybody? Color trends may come and quickly go, but Black is one hue that will never, in our humble opinion, go out of style. (By the way, Pantone picked Greenery for this year taking over from last year’s baby blue and pink tones of Serenity and Rose Quartz.)  Many people consider Black a “safe” color. Our sales team hears that quite often — “I’m afraid to pick a color, so I just want Black.” ... Read More

Kim Lewis Tiny Home Debuts in LA with Barn Light Electric
When the tiny home movement first started gaining momentum, some thought the trend would play out and disappear. The trend was fueled, in part, by the economic downturn in 2007-2008 and consumer interest in lowering the cost of living. Instead of fizzling, however, the trend continues to flourish. There is much to love about these small spaces in addition to the affordability factor. Tiny homes are more ecologically friendly than a mini-mansion and can serve multiple purposes, such as a place for aging relatives, returning children, a home office, or a guest house. ... Read More

Gooseneck Barn Lights Offer Superior Downlighting for Garages
My garage is a hot mess. I admit that I have never actually parked a car in the garage thanks to countless boxes of stuff, kayaks, bikes, a punching bag, and 1,000 board feet of red oak that’s drying. No room for even a Smart car in there. Which is why I keep the door closed as much as possible. No matter what’s hiding behind your garage doors, the exterior can look as sharp and stylish as your home with thoughtful exterior lighting. Whether your garage is attached or detached, excellent down lighting helps illuminate the surrounding driveway and the walkway to the house without creating harsh glare. And there’s no better garage lighting than... Read More

Summertime and the Living is Outdoors!
With summer in full swing, outdoor dining spaces are getting a workout. Preparing dinner on the grill keeps the heat out of the kitchen, plus it’s easy to throw an extra burger on when friends drop by. 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. The 14″ Goodrich® Union Warehouse Shade is customized with a... Read More
