Black and white — the most basic of color schemes — can lend an air of simplicity, clean lines, and elegance. In this Parisian restaurant, the black-and-white palette scales new heights with the unexpected uses of texture and treatment. For example, instead of simply using solid color chairs, the seats are painted randomly – black chairs with white accents, white chairs with black – to add a playfulness to what could be a staid and boring space. The white linens add a crispness to the tables while the white artwork along the back wall brings some interesting texture into the room. And the white, cord hung warehouse shades help negate the high ceiling adding light and visual interest.
These shades closely resemble our Ivanhoe™ Aero 12″ Shallow Bowl Pendant, part of our collection of Porcelain Barn Lights. The Ivanhoe™ Aero features a stacked neck design and a flared base. This classic fixture is handcrafted right here in America by Barn Light Electric craftsmen who spin these shades from commercial grade steel. A glass enamel coating is hand applied then baked at extremely high temperatures to produce the hardest, most durable finish on the market today. Porcelain enamel resists fading and chipping and requires minimal maintenance to last a lifetime.
The Ivanhoe™ Aero comes in nine gorgeous porcelain colors from classic black or white to bright cobalt blue or creamy jadite green. You can accessorize your new light with a standard black or white cord or be a bit flashy with a cotton twist cord that comes in several colors. To put a vintage spin on your Aero, try the look of an old-fashioned Edison style light bulb that’s sure to get a second look.
If you prefer a stem mount for your pendant, check out the Benjamin™ 12″ Aero Stem Mount Shallow Bowl Light. The Benjamin™ line of porcelain pendants are all stem mounted for use in exterior locations.
