We’re seeing double.
Yes, it’s Friday. Yes, it’s been a long week.
But the doubles we see are not the result of overindulgence, but of the creative minds of our R&D team at work. The Atomic Topless Dual Sconce is the latest addition to our Rustic Wall Sconce Collection bringing a new twist to the classic industrial wall sconce.

When we attended the Design Bloggers Conference a few weeks ago in Atlanta, we enjoyed catching up with old friends and meeting dozens of new interior designers and bloggers. One new face belonged to Kevin O’Gara, an Atlanta native who created his own blog, Thou Swell, three years ago which has been steadily gaining followers ever since.

We have enjoyed watching Christina work on her 1902 Victorian home for almost a year now. We follow her progress, along with a host of other fans, on her blog Christina’s Adventures where she chronicles the ups and downs of living in and renovating an older home.

“It was our last major piece of our downstairs area, so there was a light at the end of the tunnel,” Christina says. “But it was hard because we couldn’t simply shut a door and have the mess contained in a room. We welcomed guests into a hallway filled... Read More
With rugged Mummy Mountain serving as both backdrop and inspiration in Paradise Valley, Arizona, it seems fitting that Matt would choose American-made, barn style lighting for his new home just northeast of Phoenix.
“Style and functionality were important to me as I searched for lighting, but buying American-made fixtures was important too,” Matt says. His search for well-made, rugged gooseneck barn lights made in the USA led him to Barn Light Electric where he discovered the only place where porcelain enamel lights are still crafted the old-fashioned way.

When you live at the beach, going to the mountains is a real escape. For internationally renowned photographer Gregory Daniel and his wife Lesa, a cabin nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of north Georgia offers a rustic and peaceful getaway from their coastal home in central Florida.
“Owning a cabin in the mountains has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember,” Greg says. Antler Lodge is now the family’s go-to retreat and is also used as a rental so other families can make memories there too.
