New Brass + Copper Lighting from Barn Light Electric

If design trends have taught us anything over the past several years, it’s that popular metallic finishes like brass and copper are here to stay. Up until now, the lighting industry has made leaps and bounds with decorative fixtures, but the industrial aesthetic kept to its familiar finishes: enamel and galvanized steel. All of that is changing now thanks to Barn Light Electric, a forerunner in the industrial lighting biz and a particularly favorite vendor for some of our commercial projects (think farm-to-table in Asheville and future Savannah-based butcher shop). If you’re looking to add a bit of shine to your next kitchen, bath, or commercial project, check out some of our favorite picks from the new collection. Having trouble with scale and placement? Give us a ring – we’d be happy to help. Sources: 1. Outback Industrial Brass Pendant / 2. Bowie Copper Wall Sconce / 3. Fargo…

Back To School

If you follow us on Facebook, you heard some exciting news last week about our new office space; a renovated three-story school house on the Eastside (above). As renovation takes way to turn a single floor of individual classrooms into a collaborative studio, we can’t help but pull interior elements that evoke the back-to-school vibe. Because we move in this Fall, there couldn’t be better timing to think about notepads and freshly sharpened pencils to deck out the new studio. For a fresh schoolhouse look of your own, here are our top picks for an office space that’s sure to bring home straight-A’s. 1. Sharpen those geography skills well before the first bell rings with the new Cities Wallpaper by Rifle Paper Co. Hand-illustrated skylines of famous cities are printed on a parchment background, perfect for a desk nook. 2. This olive green compartment tray from School…
