American Made Lighting | Hand Crafted, Customized to Last
With the US economy still struggling six years after the recession took hold, more consumers than ever are focusing on American made products. From locally grown foods and craft beer to clothing and yes, even barn lighting , consumers are realizing that the American-made label translates not only to jobs but to an amazing range of quality products. There is even a growing movement, reported today by CNBC, among American manufacturers to create and export their products as part of a strategic growth plan.
Here at Barn Light Electric, we are proud to be the only company in America hand crafting porcelain enamel lighting. Once a staple of the lighting industry back in the 1930s and 40s, porcelain enamel lighting fell out of favor when cheaper painting techniques came onto the market. With a high-gloss finish that is baked onto a commercial-grade steel shade, porcelain enamel lights are one of the most durable fixtures available today and are crafted to last for years with no fading.
This Wheeler™ Seaside Radial Wave Reflector Wall Sconce is one of dozens of porcelain enamel lights that can be customized with shade size, finish color, dusk-to-dawn photocell, and other accessories like a wire cage or cast guard and glass.
Our collection of Ceiling Pendants also includes many examples of fine craftsmanship from American manufacturers. For example, the globes on our Schoolhouse Lights are hand blown by glass blowers in West Virginia then shipped to Barn Light Electric where we paint, mount, assemble, and ship the fixtures all over the world.
This Schoolhouse Chain Hung Pendant is shown with a large glass globe, a double opaque painted band in a black finish, and a black chain and cord. By combining the classic look of 1930s schoolhouse fixture with a vintage chain mounting you get a beautiful period-authentic pendant completely made in America!
If you love the look of American made lighting but need to stay on budget, don’t miss the offerings in our Discount Barn Lighting collection where you can get the look for less thanks to slightly fewer options offered. This Farm & Barn Cord Hung Pendant, for example, comes in four shade sizes and five popular finish colors. And all crafted with the same high quality materials as all of our Barn Light Electric products!
