    *[DLQ] - Dulux Lexicon Quarter

    Lexicon® Quarter has a cool, fresh, modern appearance, particularly when applied to walls and trims. This finish will provide a seamless up-to-date style to your home, extending that look, feel, and style using a Barn Light ;). Powdercoat is a different product to paint, not all powdercoats look like paints, and the variance in satins, gloss levels, and matte level vary dramatically.

    *WS975-Galvanised Appendum

    WS975-Galvanised is a premium, hand-painted finish manufactured from quality fine metallic paints and Acrylic Etch Primers designed to age with the building and surrounds. You'll be probably asking yourself, "Is it Steel?". The answer is NO, it is not. Its hand-dabbed automotive quality paint formula, sprayed by our employees.

    1. This paint/finish is expensive - 8Ltrs of this formula costs $800.
    2. We haven't changed paint formulation since 2014, and we've got this finish installed at Seaworld (yes, that one) for the past 10 years.
    3. We don't keep stock - All parts needs to be batched. The pattern changes subtly based on the operator.
    4. Leadtimes vary a touch more than usual due to the labour required to achieve this finish.

    By checking this box, you acknowledge that Warranties are limited to two-years from the date of purchase for this finish, as aging is a desired effect.

The Old Dixie Cottage Wall Light

The Old Dixie Cottage Wall Light is a modern inspired wall light with a rustic design aesthetic. Its cascading and rigid neckline adds a touch of modern styling to the most prestigious of homes. The Cottage Wall Light family is popular for illuminating entryways, the Old Dixie’ s shallow-bowl styling throws a wide scatting of lighting dispersal, ensuring that ambience is attained in the darkest of corners. The use of hard edges and ridges across the Old Dixie’s 28cm body, the skirting shows cascades and designs most appreciated in modern homes. In order to soften a hard exterior of today’s modern home requires a delicate design touch and we believe our Old Dixie is the easiest way to accomplish this.

Modern Wall Light – What’s New?

Our existing range of Cottage Wall Lights meets and performs beautifully for a small lighting range, and the Old Dixie becomes its newest entrant in 2023. Compounding upon the success of our Old Dixie Gooseneck Barn Light, we now offer a smaller 28cm Old Dixie Warehouse Shade (this product) in the same mounting as the Austin, Universal, and Wesco Cottage Wall Lights. Soon, we’ll also offer our 28cm Old Dixie Farmhouse Wall Light for an expanded range of modern wall lights for the home owner to enjoy Managing Directors Note: It took us a year, a pandemic, lockdowns, and material shortages to finally bring you the Old Dixie in 2023. Its been worth the wait and unofficially we’ve been selling this shade off-line for the past six months – Its a definite a bestseller.

Styling interior wall lights

The Old Dixie can be a designer’s statement piece or a functional list for the average homeowner, its Modern design is perfect for adding a vintage appear to otherwise cutting-edge design in blacks and whites. Available in a large range of colours such as Medium Bronze, New Copper, Dark Bronze, and our eternal classic Black Ace Crafted using a durable, Australian-spun Aluminium shade, brass-plated steel arm, and brass locknut, the Old Dixie Wall Light is robust enough to withstand daily wear-and-tear, (and when paired with the right coastal rated powdercoat) while still providing a warm, inviting glow upon the walls of our living spaces.

Federation Style Coach Wall Lights – Here’s your replacement.

Our Old Dixie Cottage Wall Light has been a star performer for those renovating and swapping out old coach lights, with our industrial / Hampton styled Austin Cottage Wall Light, remaining the start performer. While we do love a good coach light, those made popular in the 1990’s in new estates are definitely showing their age and restoration of these lights are nigh impossible. With its cascading, steppe styled hard edges and modern styling, it’s easy to see why swapping for our Old Dixie Wall Light makes it a favourite amongst exterior designers. Keeping with our red or cream brick façade and decorative iron details? Heritage or Federation colour schemes like Manor Red, Cottage Green, and Classic Cream. Available in a wide variety of colours, the Old Dixie requires only your colour scheme to finish the job and make it look light new.

Interior Wall Lighting

Modern lighting and interior lighting, and interesting condundrum. These days, the modern home has a variety of pancake LED downlights that interior lighting designers positively hate (Credit: Adele Locke // Mint Lighting). When used inside such as over your bedroom side tables or used within a reading nook – You can have all the ambience of a late Sunday afternoon’s reading marathon without burning your retinas every time you turn a page. There really isn’t a limit to where you can install the Old Dixie – Its larger profile (3cm larger than the Austin & Universal) means you can install it anywhere a larger proportion is required. For example: Over art works, family portraits, or scribble boards with shopping lists and messages of affirmations and areas that are not highly trafficked. We find that customers renovating their cookie-cutter, modern styled estate homes will commonly choose the Old Dixie Cottage for areas adjacent to entryways whilst pairing with our larger Old Dixie Goosenecks to accent around the driveway/garages to provide a consistent lighting spread. This means that from the street, through to garden (if so blessed!), from the garage, and through to your entryway doors – for safety and security purposes – You’ve got a modern wall light with purpose, aesthetics, and functionality all in one. Throw in our Old Dixie Post Mount Light to have the whole family of exterior lighting.

Exterior Wall Lights

Our Old Dixie Wall Lights comes complete with your selection of powdercoated outdoor (and coastal) rated finishes for added sophistication. We manufacture all of our wall lighting for the great outdoors and your home should be no exception whether you live near the coast or otherwise. The modern home can always benefit from a range of traditional lighting designs, especially those that feature some vintage-industrial spirit. Whether that be rattan, recovered timber, or linens – Make a lasting impression with our Outdoor Rated, Old Dixie Cottage Wall Light. A light that can resist the great Australian Outdoors.

Frequently Answered Questions

The Backing Plate.

Our Hand Finished Aluminium Wall Light Plate [SCO-WBP2 / SCO-WBP3] is 140mm in diameter and projects 48mm off the wall.

The Sconce / Gooseneck / Support Arms.

Our Sconce Arms are manufactured from Brass-plated, clear coated, rolled steel. We prepare the surfaces and then powdercoat a top-coat of your selected colour. Whilst we use aluminium for every other facet of our manufacturing process, the structural integrity of steel is required for these wall light models.

Wall Fixing Bracket

We provide a steel “Cross Bar” with M10x1.0mm threaded in the centre. This fixing permits customers with different mounting surfaces (and angles, like weatherboards) to “reblock” the backing without needing to modify the product to suit. The ability to install the crossbar over two surfaces makes these installation advantageous for non-recessed electrical terminations.

To affix this bracket to your structure using any of your typical fixings (think Timber Screws/Concrete/Masonry Fixings), then affix your Sconce Backing Plate using our supplied 75mm Threaded Nipple A supplied, colour-matched decorative Brass Locknut finishes your new design

Waterproofing Gasket 

We supply an Australian Made, closed cell (waterproofing) gasket designed to fit between your Wall Light Plate & Mounting Surface. The gasket is 5mm thick, 165mm in diameter (5mm larger than the sconce plate) to assist in positioning with a 30mm centre hole for electrical to be terminated within the sconce plate.

Recyclable Packaging?

Yup, everything is then packaged into a brown or white paper bag and marked with your colour, size, installation instructions, and any applicable warnings

All Barn Light Lighting takes a common “E27 / Edison Screw / ES / Screw Bulb” that you’ll find at your local hardware, or grocery store. If you’d prefer to purchase our LED Bulbs, the supplier ( provides a three-year warranty.

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 wall 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)” – You’ll have the ability to install a 100W Bulb.

Atomic Barn Lighting – 60W

If you select an Accessory such as “Atomic Cast Guard” – When installed with Glass, you’ll be limited to 60W as the sealed glass enclosure becomes a literal heat-trap.

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?

When purchasing on our website, you need only put “12V Only” in the “Order Notes” field at the checkout. We’ll complete the wiring modification (12V Black/Red Cables) at no charge to you.
Compliance sticker will state 12-24V Only; any amperage you throw in will work just fine, obvious limitations apply based on your supply current.
We supply E27 Lampholders, however you’ll also need to get 12-24V LED Bulbs to make the most of your low voltage areas; these bulbs can be supplied at a $29 surcharge otherwise you can buy them online from various online retailers.

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.

Older homes typically have newer exterior decking which drops the installation point from 1.8m to any deviation, causing issues obtaining replacement lighting, further “Coach Lamps” and similar styles (wall sconces typically push light up!) are usually installed lower than desired once lighting styles are changed.

We recommend measuring the area to ensure you’ve got enough space for the (over-) arching steel arms AND enough room for a drop from the mounting point.

If you’ve got the space for both, our Industrial Wall  Sconces like The Original, Astro, Old Dixie Wall Lights. A unique benefit for these units is the addition of optional Atomic Cast Guards which increase the IP Rating to IP55.

Our Single Arm Sconces are designed with you in mind.

You’ll want Wall Lights like our The Universal, Austin, Cafe for these areas. More often that we expect, these sconces are installed over kitchen windows internally over the sink, pantry, and even walkways.

If you’d rather a larger light – You’d likely prefer our range of Gooseneck Wall Lights are this is what  Gooseneck Barn Lights were originally manufactured for.
