American Made Vintage Industrial Furniture
December is “National Made in America Month” and Barn Light Electric Co.® is proud to offer its line of American made Vintage Industrial Furniture inspired by both the Railroad Era and Industrial Revolution. Each week this December, we will showcase one of our lines of American-made products. These industrial work tables can be utilized as kitchen islands, craft stations, work benches, sofa tables or plant stands – the uses are nearly endless!
For The Apprenticeship (shown above), power-coating is available in five popular colors: Black, White, Vintage Green, Barn Red, or Bronze. Customize this workbench for the man on your holiday shopping list! If you’re searching for a large wooden work bench table for your craft room, workshop or garage, consider The Apprenticeship | Industrial Factory Work Table with a strong, welded steel frame, poplar hardwood top, and a second 16″ wide storage shelf below. Did you know – poplar is known as a “soft hardwood” because the wood is physically soft yet it comes from a deciduous broad leafed tree?
These sustainable and green, eco friendly work tables shown below, all have a piece of our Barn Light history behind them. Each was made using reclaimed 50 year old Merritt Island Hard Pine from the original roof rafters of our latest Barn Light Electric Co.® office renovation. The pieces were removed by hand and then delivered to a local, very talented craftsman, Lytle Contracting, who then turned the rafters into butcher block style table tops for each piece.
The Armory Vintage | Industrial Work Station is available for $895 and is suitable for retail displays or it can be just as useful within the home as a movable craft table. Its cast iron wheels allow for easy movement and features a rustic yet professional look with tightly-welded seams to bring a raw, turn-of-the-century feel into each piece. It measures 35 1/2″ H x 24″ W x 36″ L.
The Urbanization | Factory Utility Cart retails for $945 and is ideal for any garage, shop or office where portable storage is needed. Within the home, it can be used as a portable kitchen island, craft tables or TV stand. It measures 39 1/2″ H x 24″ W x 48″ L.
If youâ€™re looking for a unique end table or sofa table, check out The Hudson | Vintage Industrial Loft Sofa Table, which can be purchased for $495 and measures 24″ H x 10 1/4″ W x 20 1/4″ L. The Hudson can slide under a chair or bed to make it a welcome addition to an urban loft or modern seating area. It can also be used as a wooden coffee table in a home office or waiting room.
For an occasional table or nightstand, consider the Restoration | Vintage Industrial Wood Side Table, which sells for $695 and measures 24″ H x 16 1/2″ W x 16 1/2″ L. The Restoration represents true railroad style design, and can bring a rugged, masculine look into any urban loft or modern home.
“It is time for consumers both here and abroad to take a fresh look at what America has to offer. Those who do will find the traditional variety, high quality, and dependability that `Made in the U.S.A.’ has come to symbolize.”
– President Ronald Reagan’s Proclamation of National Made in America Month.
