Originally Barn Lights were built to last generations, incorporating quality materials and craftsmanship into their makeup. However as time progressed quality started to taper off. New technologies and machine-manufacturing took away the care, the attention to detail, found in vintage lights. We’ve continued the tradition of spinning individual warehouse shades by hand, a process that imbues every lighting fixture with an unparalleled durability, helping it stand up to trying and demanding settings.
Each barn light features a deep, curved bowl—a style inspired by those vintage lighting fixtures. The Old Dixie is the ideal addition to exterior lighting plans. It’s the quality craftsmanship making this possible. The warehouse shade is built from commercial grade metal, and the durable gooseneck arm protects the wiring from all types of weather. Each wall light is assembled by hand, meaning this Australian made lighting fixture will last generations.This ruggedness, however, doesn’t interfere with the style of the Old Dixie. With a variety of vibrant powder-coat finish colors available, this wall light matches any decor. The other customisation options heighten the vintage aesthetic of this industrial wall lighting. Those options include wire cages and guard and glass covers, protecting the bulb as it offers retro style!

Our The Old Dixie Gooseneck Barn Light is powdercoated ALL-OVER; Every product is coated both internally and externally in powdercoat including the shade, electrical coupler, mounting arms, and wall backing plates.
