Barn Wall Sconces for an All American Porch

Everybody has a tricky space in their home that is missing that last finishing touch. It could be a piece of artwork in your living room, or maybe a throw pillow on your bed. The porch from Country Living today has just about everything: a cozy wicker chair, a swing big enough for two and even tables to rest afternoon snacks on. We did notice one little thing though; there isn’t a porch light to be found! So if you have an all-American porch like this, we’ve selected a few American made light fixtures that just might make this porch complete.


Keeping with the cozy country styling is our Goodrich® Esso Porcelain Gooseneck Light. Shown in white, the Esso would work nicely with the white trim and furniture, and would pop against the blue siding. Gooseneck barn lamps like the Esso have been used for years as exterior light fixtures, so why not add one to the face of a classic, country home?

For a traditional lighting option, the Barn Light Moss Sconce has a design that is inspired by the outdoors. The gooseneck arm has scrolls that mirror vines or ivy, while the glass globe has an acorn style shape and texture. Mount the Moss Sconce next to windows and doors for a classic outdoor light as well as decorative accent.

You could always go the nautical route on this porch too. The wicker furniture and sea grass rug reminded us of oceanside homes where cast guard lights are found on docks and bathrooms. The Industrial Static Topless CGU Sconce in red or galvanized would be an ideal rustic wall light to wrap up the potential coastal vibe. The glass jar inside protects the bulb from the weather, while the outer cast guard piece provides an extra layer of stylish protection.
