When the offices of Story Culture, a television production house in Midtown Manhattan, were recently gutted and remodeled, designer Jowill Leano struggled with the unique challenges of the space.
“The hardest challenge was lighting,” says Jowill, a television and interiors designer who has worked on shows such as Lake Life and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. “When you start to add walls, you lose all of the wonderful natural light from the windows. The best solution was to add glass walls and doors where possible and to have good interior lighting.”
“We wanted to keep the space bright and modern with pops of color. They had some furniture they wanted to reuse and I wanted to add some rustic touches to warm it up a bit,” she explains. “The Wesco Pendant has a great shape and provides the perfect amount of light whether hanging above a dining table or, in this case, lighting an 8,000-square-foot office.”
The Wesco is one of Barn Light’s most customizable barn pendants with six shade sizes and 20 finish colors to choose from. Custom colors are available upon request. Wire guards or cast guard and glass can be added and this shade is also available in LED and porcelain enamel.
“So many fixtures either look good but don’t provide enough lighting or provide the lighting but are a designer’s nightmare,” Jowill says. “The Wesco checks all the boxes. We love how they look and they perfectly light the space. Did I mention we put up 38 of these pendants? Now that’s true love!”
