vintage lights

October 25, 2012

Barn Light Electric started as a weekend hobby for Bryan and Donna Scott.

On weekends, the couple would visit antique stores, estate sales and poke around abandoned buildings in search of old barn-style lights, which they later rewired, restored and sold on the side.

In 2008, with three children and a concern about the economy, the Scotts left their full-time careers (air marshal and nurse) to start Barn Light Electric in Titusville, Fla.

The company has attracted a following for its American-made, retro-style light fixtures, which include barn pendants, goosenecks and sconces.

Current best sellers include the Original Warehouse Pendant ($99) and the Original Warehouse Gooseneck ($168). With its classic style, the gooseneck can be customized in more than nine finishes. Use it indoors or out. See below.

Recently, the company launched its newest line of commercial-grade, porcelain enamel lighting ($120 to $330).

Once popular, porcelain enamel lighting died out with advent of faster and cheaper painting techniques. The Scotts have brought it back.

Of if you are visiting on the east coast of Florida,  visit the company’s retail showroom, 3405 S. Washington Avenue, in Titusville (near Orlando and the Kennedy Space Center).
