The Classic Allure of Barn Lights + A $500 Giveaway

by Caitlin Kelch

The ability of barn lights to have a vintage and modern look all at once has always been a major part of their appeal. Whether hanging from a tall ceiling or lighting the way into a garage or barn, barn lights are definitely a star in our lighting lexicon. As the pendant light trend continues, the barn light is also rising once again and bringing its gooseneck sisters along for the ride. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever met a gooseneck curve I haven’t loved.

Those bold curves, paired with a classic industrial shade profile, get me every time. As LED lighting becomes more and more successful in producing a warm color temperature, the use of barn lights indoors and out is quickly becoming “a thing” again.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite LED lights from the from  below, whose fixtures and finishes are right on. They’ve generously offered to gift one reader a $500 gift card for the perfect lighting upgrade! (P.S. They also have if you’re setting up entryway art or a salon wall! Or if you have a piano, their  might just help you get back to your practice schedule.)

This interior reclaimed barn door lit by two gooseneck barn lights lends an air of simplicity to a renovation in San Francisco. The dotted wood is actually a creative alternative to the standard airflow cover!

Comments

  • We’ve been wanting to replace an exterior light on the front end of our studio behind our house with a barn light – one of the Goodyear or Oldage lights would be perfect!

  • The mahogany cherry wood piano lamp is stunning! We are in desperate need of some new outdoor lighting, though, and the gooseneck barn light in green or one of the peony barn lights would be a great addition to our home!

  • The LED piano lamp in Oil Rubbed Bronze (I have a piano) and the Goodyear Vintage Green Dimmable LED 14″ gooseneck barn light. They’re gorgeous!

  • I fell in love with the copper barn light while designing retail buildings at my architecture firm. The town we were permitting the building with had strict rules that you could only have 4 colors at a time on the building, and I hated that rule and wanted to find a way to circumvent it. I finally realized if I did real copper barn lights on the building exterior, and faux copper canopies, the real copper would patina over time, revealing a new 5th color!! It was a sneaky way to add another gorgeous color to a building that would have seemed rather bland without it. Ever since then I’ve wanted to have some for my new home, but an architect’s salary doesn’t allow for too many fancy upgrades at a time.

  • The indoor/outdoor sleek 16″ jade calla led barn light is my very favorite. Though the copper oldage led with rustic gooseneck is a close 2nd!

  • I would want gooseneck barn lights for the front and back doors of my home (love the copper and cobalt), and ceiling barn lights for indoor use.

  • Love how customizable these are! I love the Peony and the Goodyear, especially the Goodyear in vintage green or cobalt blue. Thanks for doing the giveaway!!

  • My favorite is the
    16″ CHERRY RED OLDAGE INDOOR/OUTDOOR METROPOLITAN LED BARN LIGHT. This would be a perfect update to our outdoor light.

  • So many fabulous lights! Love the Calla Jade Industrial LED 16″.. but could see so many of these in my place….

  • The solid brass gooseneck LED barn lights, or the vibrant colored (yellow) Oldage Goosenecks would look amazing in my 1920’s craftsman bungalow.

  • I really like this light for our cozy cabin.
    customizable-blackspot-led-ceiling-mounted-pendant-lamp
    It would be perfect to update the current fixtures.

  • 10″ Blackspot sleek cherry red would be ideal in my kitchen spotlighting my “Fresh Baked Pie” sign recently found at a salvage shop. Mmmmmmm, I can smell the butter crust.

  • I’ve been looking for a gooseneck light for above our grill for a while!! We currently have an ancient, awful, light that buzzes so loud it kills all the nice outdoor ambiance. The Goodyear would fit perfectly :)

    • The Blackspot LED Ceiling Mounted Pendant Lamp would be perfect for my bedroom and the Goodyear Gooseneck Yellow Barn Light screams your patio!!!
      Am trying to make all the lighting in my home consistent- and the styles here would be the perfect fit for the industrial-farmy type of decor I’m striving for.

  • The yellow barn lights would add so much cheer, but in a classic timeless way! – to the outside of our cottage-style house. And I want one of those oil-rubbed bronze picture lights to add light to our fixture-less hallway!

  • It was hard to narrow it down to just one favorite light – as I pretty much love every single one of the Jade colors.

    But I would love to hang this one in my kitchen:

    Thanks!

  • I’m thinking the Customizable Peony Indoor/Outdoor LED Barn Light might be really neat in my 1880s house kitchen redo – arching over the counter. They’re simple enough not to collect too much kitchen grease, yet traditional enough not to look out of place.

  • The “Goodyear Ceiling Dimmable Cobalt Blue LED 12″ Pendant Light” would look great in our kitchen, which took on a blues-and-browns(woods) color scheme seemingly of its own accord.

    If the same light was available in that cheerful yellow or the mellow jade green, I’d love to hang a few in my ceramics studio (a space similar to the lead image of this post, but on a much smaller scale). Maybe the wall-mounting version in vintage green would work. Heck, it’s lovely.
