Design trends get a lot of play in January as we try to figure out what’s hot and what’s cooling off. One trend we see holding steady is the rustic/modern blending of both old and new elements.
Our friends at Wolf & Wing Interior Design embrace this style and often use barn lights to add a classic but clean look to a space. The design team recently transformed a turn-of-the-century space that once housed a shoe store into a modern restaurant with plenty of rustic elements for interest. Located on the South Shore of Long Island, the restaurant, called Flight, is casual and comfortable but with a more sophisticated atmosphere than other area bars and... Read More
When Mother Nature flexes her winter muscles with snow and bitter winds, our home becomes a refuge. Even here in Florida, where the temps dive into the 50s on occasion (I know, you feel our pain), the first month of the new year is more often spent indoors than out. It’s also when you realize it’s been months since you seriously deep cleaned and decluttered!
We’re taking inspiration from Houzz today where an ideabook focuses on a January Home Checklist. While exterior tasks are duly noted, we’re more interested in the interior list than ice dams and freezing pipes.

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.

Today’s Featured Customer had similar humble beginnings.

The five owners and partners recently remodeled a storage space in their plant to create an executive... Read More

Sometimes a space just cries out for the perfect light. But when interior designer Kyle Baker surveyed the space being remodeled for Velo City Cycles in Holland, Michigan, he wanted more than just one perfect light. He found Barn Light Electric’s Sky Chief Porcelain Enamel Light — and bought 39 of them.
“I didn’t want the ceiling to be heavy, and the white enamel finish looks more light and airy,” Kyle says. “The pendants match the industrial aesthetic the client was looking for and they were on sale.” Kyle selected the 16″ shade which was part of our selection of discounted porcelain enamel lighting. These fixtures come... Read More
