Today we discover how rustic chandeliers take center stage in a surprising loft space in the barn. “The tack room in the barn leads upstairs to the gathering room which has a kitchen along one wall,” Renee explains. “The space is really multi-functional. It serves as overflow guest space, a space for farm meetings, and the kitchen serves as extra space for holiday... Read More

Porcelain Enamel Dinnerware Makes a Splash on the Table
It’s been almost four years since Barn Light Electric revived the lost art of manufacturing porcelain enamel lighting.
