Post Mount Lights Provide Vintage Style to Restaurant Lighting

On a recent trip through the funky little coastal town of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, we enjoyed a fabulous fried grouper sandwich and some sweet tea at Creek Ratz, a local joint that specializes in fresh seafood, cold beer, and some wonderful industrial lighting. We showed you in a previous blog how galvanized industrial warehouse pendants complete with a red wire cage are used to highlight the bar area with rustic style.

To get this look for your restaurant or commercial lighting plan, check out our expanded selection of Post Mount Lighting which includes a variety of both single and double warehouse shades plus post mount lanterns.

The Gold Rush Single Post Mount Exterior Light offers a similar classic look with either a 20″ or 26″ inch shade and can be customized with one of 17 different finish colors. Add a cast guard and glass, in a variety of colors and textures, to give this light even more vintagesingle_decorative_post_mount_arm_galvanized_radial_wave_14_inch_red1.jpg appeal. Several options are also available for the pole itself including a direct burial or aluminum fluted cast pole.

If you’re looking for something a little more modern and fun, don’t miss the Seaside Radial Wave Single Post Mount Decorative Exterior Light. This wavy, American-made reflector shade will draw lots of attention and is perfect for walkways, outdoor patios, and parking lots. These fixtures, like all of our porcelain enamel barn lights, are hand spun from commercial grade steel then coated with porcelain enamel glass. The shades are baked at extremely high temperatures to seal the glass for a high gloss finish that will never fade and is easy to maintain. Even with the South’s abundant sunshine, porcelain enamel will provide years of use!

    I have the same old gas station lights you saw on your trip. Mine are barn green. What kind of bulbs do these use? The bulb globes are larger than normal but I am sure mine will be too old to tell me anything. Help is appreciated always. thanks on advance.
