New Industrial Pendants Join Growing Family of Rustic Lighting
The popularity of industrial design continues to gain momentum. Homeowners can’t seem to get enough of open floor plans and tend to choose décor pieces that focus on function more than style. Exposed duct work and piping serve as design elements, reclaimed wood is repurposed for new uses, and industrial pendants harken back to the days of early 20th century factories and warehouses. Our collection of American-made Rustic Pendants is chock full of ceiling lights that complement not only an industrial style but farmhouse and nautical spaces too. The latest additions to this collection — Static Ring Pendants — made their debut this week. ... Read More

Rustic Lighting Offers Rugged Style, Sophistication
Drawing from the nautical and industrial lighting fixtures of the early 20th century, our collection of Rustic Lighting offers a rugged alternative to flimsy, big box store lights. Vintage nautical lights — think bulkhead lighting — and vapor lights featured a rugged cast guard and glass that offered protection to the bulb in hazardous work environments like factories and warehouses. While these were super functional, they were hardly stylish. ... Read More

Lighting Lingo: Light Bulb Choices, Changes, and Challenges
When Congress passed the Energy Independence Act in 2007, its purpose was to encourage consumers to switch over to more energy-efficient light bulbs. At the time, compact fluorescents, called CFLs, and LED light bulbs were considerably more expensive to buy than standard incandescents, but in recent years, costs have come down. Consumers are realizing the savings on their electric bill and these savings can be substantial in commercial spaces. ...
