Gooseneck Warehouse Shades for Classic Red Vermont Barn
Outside storage space always seems to be an issue when you have lawn mowers, bicycles, gardening tools, and, if you live up north, the essential snowblower. Add in a hobby like woodworking with its own array of space-hogging tools and you start dreaming of a shed as big as your house. Don’t dream bigger, dream better! This beautiful Vermont barn, designed by Mitra Samimi-Urich, holds everything the owner needs and does so with classic New England style including, oh yes, beautiful gooseneck barn lighting.
The barn doors were custom designed and built to have three different functions to address the specific needs of the client. With their home close to Otter Creek and as avid kayakers, the owners wanted a convenient place to store their boats. Also a master woodworker, the owner needed a workshop so another door services that area of the barn. And behind door number three is the garage space for winter month usage. Highlighting the outside of these handsome and functional doors are stunning warehouse shades much like our Original Warehouse Shade. The black finish on these shades is the perfect complement to the deep barn red color and crisp white accents on the building. The gooseneck arms project the lights up and over the door so that the light shines directly below.
Based on vintage RLM warehouse shade designs, our barn lighting recreates the rustic charm of the 1930s when these warehouse shades were first used on barns just like this one. With an arm in the shape of a goose’s neck, these fixtures could be placed at just the right angle for a specific work area.
The American made Original Warehouse Shade comes in more than 40 finish colors so you can find one to match your own decor be it a barn, front porch, or garage. To give your light an even more classic feel, add a wire cage or cast guard and glass!
