Featured Customer | Classic Barn Lighting Sets the Tone in NY Home Remodel

For Amanda and her husband, Christopher, the move from a New York apartment to a Cape Cod-style modern farmhouse in Dutchess County was exciting as they started incorporating their own style into the space. “The first remodel consisted of a new master bathroom, refinishing the hardwood floors, and replacing dated mudroom tiles with wood floors,” Amanda says. “We also replaced all of the light fixtures in the house.” Although she didn’t like the existing lights which were wood and iron with candles, Amanda couldn’t put her finger on exactly what...

Featured Customer | Rustic Barn Lights Capture Hunting Lodge Feel in Alaska
