Old Dixie gives classic rustic charm with its deep bell-shaped dome. It brings old-school style to complement your classic and contemporary décor. Its rounded curves spread the light broadly and evenly off the inside of the bell, enabling you to fill a large space with light from a small number of these gorgeous Barn Lights. Suitable indoors, though the quality craftsmanship that goes into all our lights makes Old Dixie a long-lasting feature in outdoor conditions.
The Old Dixie warehouse shade is considered to be a “modern” typed Warehouse shade by Barn Light. Why so? Well a long centaury or two ago the costs associated with manufacturing hard-edged, detailed lighting shades was unaffordable to the average person. Most lighting fixtures from this era provide very little in way of detail (check The Original Barn Light as an example!) due to the use of either wooden molds or untreated steel molds – any hard-edged or concave designs that featured would wear away as more shades were spun. This provided little value to the metalspinner who would then need to create more tooling. Our Old Dixie tooling is made from heat-treated steel that was once designed to spin steel porcelain enamel shades. These days we strictly spin aluminium providing an environmentally conscious process that extends our shade life and ensures every Old Dixie is identical. We’ve been spinning this shade since 2014 (Australia) and from 2008 (USA).
This designs compliments most styles and the shape, contour, dimples, and concave features of the Old Dixie Barn Light now provide a more “modern” twist on an beloved style.
For Entryway and Porch Lighting, our Industrial Wall Sconce range would typically be better suited for smaller passages. Older homes typically have newer exterior decking which drops the installation point from 1.8m to any deviation, causing issues obtaining replacement lighting. If you need a SMALLER sized lighting fixture, our SG16 Sconce Gooseneck Arm is highly recommended for smaller shades (especially <30cm).
The standard installation point for these areas is typically 1.8m AFFL (Above Finished Floor Level) for older federation/Queenslander homes. Newer/Modern Homes typically 1.8m~2.1m AFFL based on the purpose of the light.
It’s a visual thing and there’s no rule book that says you HAVE to hang it at a certain height. Have fun with it ~ Tess from @Darlanahouse
Our PG12 Petite Arm (20mm) or SG16 Sconce Arms (25mm) are designed with you in mind.
Add 1/2 of the smallest shade diameter of The Old Dixie Gooseneck Barn Light to the Gooseneck Arm’s to get an overall projection.
PG12 = 30cm Projection
SG16 = 37cm Projection
This is what Barn Lights were made for. You want a large statement piece that throws light where its needed.
We recommend the G15 Gooseneck Arm for areas with walkways underneath, or our G22 Gooseneck Arm where you’ve got both height and projection available to you (probably a new build?)
G15 Gooseneck Arm = 47cm Projection
G22 Gooseneck Arm = 57cm Projection
Both goosenecks are bent the same, however our G22 Gooseneck Arm has a longer “tail” leading to the wall.
