The wall-mounted light has long been a common element on agricultural buildings, providing a flood of light for those completing outdoor tasks.
These classic utilitarian fixtures have a gooseneck and often a cage to protect the lightbulb.
These high-functioning lights migrated from the barn to the main house, lighting the area around exterior doors.
Interior designers have picked up on the nostalgic charm and classic shape of barn lights, and adapted them for use as wall-mounted sconces indoors.
Their shape directs and expands the light, flooding the space below. Thus, they provide great light to kitchen, studio or workshop work surfaces.
Angled metal shades turn barn light-style fixtures in to chic art lighting.
