You’d be surprised to learn – We’re not always right. Released as a vintage pendant, The Hobart was immediately part of the “family group conversation” after release – family informed me that they consider the Hobart to decidedly modern. You decide?
You’ve seen it everywhere, yet nowhere these days. It looks like a billiard table light? – Correct. It looks like a kitchen island pendant? – Correct. It looks vintage, yet modern enough to compliment any modern kitchen aesthetic. The Hobart has a curious history because its not truly ours. If you are looking for a shallow bowl light to create a well lit (and dispersed!) kitchen island, but don’t want to see a glaring bulb, The Hobart flush-mounted pendant is the best of both worlds. Due to its simple slant, decent neck beading, and rolled lip, the Hobart looks at least bit more sophisticated compared to their inferior plastic cousins that adore many properties.
The Hobart Flush Mounted Pendant is quite the stunner, a light that will create that homely, earthly, “well-lit kitchen” effect that your space has been missing. Our featured simple “hard neck banding” that combined with the sleek and almost timeless styling that takes up far less room than traditional rectangular pendant lights. If you’ve ever decided that you wanted something simple, yet compelling – The Hobart leaves out all of the unattractive parts you see in other lighting models and creates a seamless visual effect from all angles!

The Ceiling Canopy / Ceiling Rose
We supply our “Stem Canopy” – a 11cm Diameter Die-Casted Ceiling Rose that comes with a threaded nipple It looks like a hollow-threaded piece of pipe, which is usually pre-installed into the Ceiling Rose. The ceiling rose is supplied in Black Ace (EBA) Finish, and is designed to take the full weight of the fixture.
We provide a steel Adaptor Bracket with threaded holes located at the left and right of the adaptor bracket. 8-32 x 3/4″ Pan Philips Screws are supplied (roughly M4 x 20mm long) in the same colour as the canopy, ensuring the entire fixture, and fixings appears the same colour on the ceiling.
Yup, everything is then packaged into a brown or white paper bag and marked with your colour, size, installation instructions, and any applicable warnings.
Flush Mounted Lighting
Please take the shade height and add a further 3cm to accommodate the Adaptor Bracket + Gaskets + Coupler to give you an overall height, or rather ceiling drop from the installation point.
Indoor Rated Canopy
For all of our Flush Mounted Lighting Products, a dry location must be selected for the installation/termination point. This means that water cannot be present in the immediate area at any stage.
Thread-Tape is required for installation (around the nipple) to ensure water-tightness in high humidity locations such as Bathrooms and Toilets
All Barn Light Lighting takes a common “E27 / Edison Screw / ES / Screw Bulb” that you’ll find at your local hardware, or grocery store.
Yup – We use a ceramic Edison Screw (E27) Lampholder.
Whats.. Better? Ceramic?!
Our ceramic/porcelain Lampholders are simply designed to take as much heat as possible (Yes, We build better lighting than our competitors) without effecting the mounting / electrical cabling. Our outdoor pendant lighting is based on decades old, reliable, vintage engineering.
Standard Outdoor Barn Lights – 100W
If you select the “default” arrangement which is simply marked as “Edison Screw Lampholder (No Bulbs Supplied)” with Standard Black Cord – You’ll have the ability to install a 100W Bulb.
Atomic Barn Lighting / Indoor Rated Cables – 60W
If you select an Accessory such as “Atomic Cast Guard” or French Braided Twist – When installed with Glass, you’ll be limited as the sealed glass enclosure becomes a literal heat-trap, resulting is a lesser Wattage rating (60W)
What you *may* want to know if considering purchasing elsewhere
Our competitors will be supplying you with a thermo-plastic lamp-holder which becomes brittle & cracks over time, with a maximum of 60W being typical (also.. not organic / not recyclable). Need to light up an area? Nope – You’ll now need to install spotlights to find your car in Winter.
Smart Bulbs – When you need a kaleidoscope of colour.
Yes, our lighting is fully compatible however we suggest that you try one bulb in the most furthest away location from your wireless signal. We manufacture with Aluminium, and you’ll likely install your new Barn Lights onto Brick or Concrete walls. Neither of these materials are ideal for wireless signals to penetrate through so tread cautiously.
Yup – We hear you, this is sounding too good to be true for a lighting company.
Frankly (the short answer is “Yes”), we could write a page about this – so we did.. -> Are Barn Lights Dimmable?
If you need a “drop” from the ceiling, consider our stem pendant lights or suspended chain ceiling pendants in these conditions as a fixed installation provides less wind related issues for most entrances.
If you’ve got a ceiling that can take some weight, an upgrade to optional Atomic Cast Guards which increase the IP Rating to IP55 and provide an interesting focal point.
For the Kitchen
A typical 1.8m-2.1m (x 900|1200mm) Island bench should have 3x pendants installed equally spaced provide sufficient light during the daytime and evening. For every 400mm of space, the addition of one extra pendant is suggested. The higher you install your pendants, the greater light dispersal, the less pendants are required. Whilst balance makes sense, its not always easy to visualise online!
If you need the ability to raise and drop the height of your dining room table lighting – we recommend our Industrial Chain Hung Pendants
For the Bathroom
“The smaller, the better” – Sparkie dependant, we insist upon using the cast guard & glass to reduce water exposure (think steam) and diffuse light more evenly (Atomic Cast Guard drops the bulb to just before the shade rim in most shade models).
For Walkways, a taller shade with a smaller diameter will provide a smaller focused lighting style. For example the “Cafe Flush Mount Light“. For shorter, and wider diameters like the “Old Dixie Flush Mount” light will provide a wide dispersal
For Garages, an array of flush-mounted lighting will provide more depth to your space than every-day LED downlights. This gives your space some character, and a higher likelihood that you’ll spend more time within your space.
Yes – We have been developing our lighting for years and it is ready to integrate with any sensor on the market today. Your electrician, or related professional will work closely with you to determine which solution best suits your needs, but don’t worry: to put it simply, buying a Barn Light is the easy part of your lighting plan.
The types of sensors available on the market today are microwave (movement), lux meters (during dusk-to dawn periods), and PIR Sensors for night (heat sensor). The best solution for you will depend upon your local conditions, thus supplying a motion sensor isn’t under the purview of the lighting products we provide.
For example: If you live in an area with nocturnal life, you wouldn’t want to install a motion sensor in your backyard covering a large amount of area. For similar reasons, you wouldn’t want a heat sensor covering the sunset as stone holds heat for a long period of time. Some video cameras these days now have a “pre-determined scope” or area of control to focus on, ignoring all else such as a driveway, ignoring the surrounds.
