Featured Customer | Popular Jadite Shade Adds Splash of Color to Kitchen Remodel
When you’re in the throes of a remodeling project, there are seemingly a thousand things that can go wrong. But sometimes you just get lucky. When Kara of Illinois recently tackled a kitchen remodel in her 1890s-era farmhouse, she selected three of Barn Light Electric’s Ivanhoe® Esso Warehouse Porcelain Pendants in a Jadite finish. “The Jadite is a favorite color of ours,” Kara says. “And lo and behold the pendants totally matched our new glass subway tile back splash. That was kismet! I had no idea if they would match.” The 8″ Esso pendants are ideal for Kara’s kitchen island — not too big and not too small. The... Read More
