Three Birds Renovation – “Bonnies Dream Home”
Its been over a year since The Three Birds wrapped up House #9 – Bonnie’s Dream House. We get enquires at least once a week, so we’re going to expand upon exactly what Barn Lights the The Three Birds featured. If you are looking to design your own, take some inspiration from the images below to get started on the right track.
The Old Dixie Gooseneck Barn Light
The Old Dixie Gooseneck Barn Light comes in a total of four different sizes; our Australian Made 43cm and 33cm versions are the most popular by far. In Bonnie’s Dream House, the Old Dixie Barn Lights were sold in the following configuration (You are more than welcome to design your own, we ♥ designers!) If you are looking for proportion, 43cm Old Dixie Gooseneck Barn Light with a G15 Gooseneck Arm and for the 33cm Old Dixie Gooseneck Barn Light select a SG16 Sconce Gooseneck Arm..
The Original Gooseneck Barn Light
We have two product listings for The Original Gooseneck Barn Light due to the sizing and price difference, but also the level of skill required to manufacture these shades.
The link from The Three Birds sends you directly to our 40cm Gooseneck Barn Light. If you are looking to meet budget, or designer requirements you’ll want our “Machine Spun” versions. The Original Gooseneck Barn Light is available in six (technically seven) different sizes; Four of which are Australian Made and Three that come from our American business partners; Barn Light.com
40cm Original Gooseneck Barn Light
Our Original Gooseneck Barn Light is available in the following Australian Made Sizes; 30cm / 40cm / 50cm – The US variants come in 35cm and 45cm. Most customers prefers larger sizes for Gooseneck Wall Lights, so selecting the right size for proportion is so important when working with lighting. You want your lighting to look proportionate otherwise cartoonish designs take away from the real asset – the space!
60cm Original Gooseneck Barn Light
Our Metal Spinner, Warren, spins our gigantic 60cm Original using a mixture of two molds. The 60cm Original is first spun using a hardened steel mold which contains the entire 40cm Shade Shape. When Spinning metal, it is “pushed onto the shape/shade” to create the new “blank” which is then finished as your new warehouse lighting shade. The neck of the 60cm Original is started using the 40cm Mold’s Neck before being slowly spun and worked/finished in another lathe that uses a hand-made wooden mold that flares out to the 60cm Shape.
We do have a 70cm Shade; however these are strictly for import only as they require either a pallet (to save freight) or airfreight which brings the cost per unit near the AU$1,500 RRP mark.
