Featured Customer | Gooseneck Barn Light Highlights Treehouse
While I definitely enjoy this season’s more relaxed schedule and inviting weather, summer is a dream come true for kids. With no school bus waiting on the corner, middle-of-the-week sleepovers, and evening firefly-catching sessions, kids have countless reasons to relish the summer.
And what kid wouldn’t love having this magical tree house in the back yard? Today’s featured customer is David, from Portland, Oregon, who designed this beautiful play space at his weekend home.
“I designed the tree house myself with a friend to match the Craftsman features of our 1927 Craftsman-era home,” says David, owner of the design website Visible Universe. The tree house features custom full and twin-sized loft bunks, French doors, custom windows, a flat screen TV, and a fridge. Oh, and there’s a zip line that runs off the deck across the entire 1/2 acre yard. Wheeee!
David chose our classic Barn Light Original™ Warehouse Gooseneck Light to provide the perfect touch over the front door. He customized this American-made wall light with a 12″ shade, Black finish, and G11 gooseneck arm in a matching Black finish.
“The gooseneck light nicely accentuates that 20’s era,” David notes. “And the black finish matches the black hardware of the front door and French doors.”
The Original™ is one of our best selling shades thanks to its classic design taken from original barn lights from the early 20th century. We hand spin our barn lights just as they were crafted almost 100 years ago, then finish them with a durable powder coat color of your choice. The Original™ comes in five shade sizes, 18 finish colors, and more than two dozen gooseneck arm styles.
You can further customize this rugged wall light with a wire cage, cast guard and glass, or a dusk-to-dawn photocell which will turn your light on at dusk and off at dawn so you never have to flip a switch. The Original™ Warehouse Shade also comes in a cord hung pendant , stem mount pendant, andflush mount . And if you’re looking to combine the latest in LED lighting with classic barn light style, you can get the Original™ with LED components too.
“We chose Barn Light Electric because we wanted high quality lighting to match the quality of the tree house,” David says. You can check out how our lights our made in this short video!
