Professional's Corner | Schoolhouse Lighting Feels Right at Home in Vintage Farmhouse
When we first started Barn Light Electric more than eight years ago, our goal was to offer high quality, vintage lighting styles with updated finishes and customizing options. We took the best that the classic RLM warehouse shade had to offer and made it even better.
Interior designers around the world fell in love with our eclectic collection of lighting. Amy Faulkenberry of ID Studio Interiors in Greenville, South Carolina, recently tapped into our Schoolhouse Collection to bring a beautiful blend of vintage and modern to a new laundry room/pantry space.
“This new home is on a farm so we really embraced the vintage farmhouse aesthetic,” Amy says. “This theme is reflected in the bead board, cast iron sink, and natural color of the cabinetry.”
Amy chose three Academia Clear Schoolhouse Gooseneck Lights to highlight the new sink. These American-made gooseneck lights are customized with small, hand-blown glass globes, Galvanized fitters, and Galvanized G1 gooseneck arms.
The clear glass globes are also embellished with three Jadite stripes which add a fun pop of color along with the whimsical frog wallpaper on the ceiling.
“The style fit perfectly with our farmhouse theme. I love the repetition of the lights over the sink,” Amy says. “It provides ample light while adding color and pattern with the Jadite stripes.”
The Academia is part of our growing collection of Schoolhouse Lights that feature a clear globe in contrast to the more traditional opaque globe. Clear globes are available as chandeliers, stem mount lights, flush mount lights, and pendants such as this Kao Clear Schoolhouse Pendant.
“We love the vintage feel of these fixtures. We’ve had several people ask if they are antiques,” Amy adds. “The industrial fittings with the clear glass were the perfect materials for this space.” Amy lends her talents to a mix of residential and commercial work with ID Studio Interiors which has been in business for 14 years.
