BARN LIGHT ELECTRIC LAUNCHES
NEW CATEGORY OF LIGHTING
Presenting the Vintage-Industrial Line of Ceiling Pendants
February 2010 – What’s the hottest new look in lighting today? Industrial lighting – and Barn Light Electric has it! Today, you see vintage factory lighting popping up all over – farmhouses, lofts, beach homes, you name it. The light fixtures at Barn Light Electric are so versatile; they can be used in almost any home or setting, and with the ability to customize sizes and colors, the options here are virtually endless.
Industrial-style lighting was created for a simple purpose – it was made to be useful. It needed to withstand harsh weather and rough working conditions. It was used in factories, medical offices, steel mills, and even on the railroad - starting as early as the late 1800’s. Today, designers, collectors and architects are all starting to incorporate this functional style into their work. The clean lines and galvanized finishes keep the space open while giving it an elegant, clean feel. Popular uses for these today include kitchens, bathrooms and porches in so many urban-inspired areas.
Barn Light Electric's “Retro Renovation” and “Retro Basic” Porcelain & Galvanized Pendants have a very sleek and contemporary design. Their basic, minimalist features can offer a stark contrast to a colorful setting or can easily blend in with its surroundings in an open, airy loft. The white, porcelain bases provide a vintage look when set next to the galvanized stem mount and canopy. Complete the retro look with one of our Edison style light bulbs (sold separately).
Warehouse shades were first used around the 1940s in both indoor and outdoor agricultural settings. The traditional shade was used to light up open area barns, warehouses and porches, and then soon moved indoors into the farmhouse for a very basic, yet useful purpose. Today, this shade has been taken straight out of the farm and into many upscale, urban environments. The new Industrial Twist Cord 16” Warehouse Pendant can fit perfectly into any setting you desire – try galvanized in your trendy loft, white in an ocean side condo, or dark green if you desire the traditional country cottage. Each is hung on our new cotton twist cord – available in two colors and in several lengths to accommodate your ceiling height.
Pricing on the new line of Vintage-Industrial lighting starts at a mere $69.00. Now you can finally get the vintage, industrial, retro look you have been wanting – without the antique price!
