Southern Lights Electric

Designer Adam Gatchel is the man behind Southern Lights Electric. Originally from Chicago, he moved to Nashville in 2002 to pursue a career in music. In 2011, after 7 years on the road as a drummer, he transitioned into lighting design and began the company with his wife Jamie. If you check out his gallery, you’ll realize that if you’ve been anywhere that’s somewhere in Nashville, you’ve been under his lights (i.e. Pinewood Social, Rolf and Daughters, Two Ten Jack).

Huckberry introduced us to his work by way of the Original Bell Jar Table Lamp. The wood base is manufactured in their Nashville workshop and each name plate is silk screened by hand. And c’mon. Who doesn’t love an exposed Edison bulb?

For your chance to have it in your home, go to this post on Instagram and double tap that baby. That’s it. Just ‘like it’ to enter. A winner will be chosen at random and announced on March 30th!

Tell everyone about your company, Flags of Origin:
Flags Of Origin is a small design firm that specializes in restaurants, commercial office spaces, custom furniture and lighting. We try our best to stick by the “made in the USA” tag and support the people around us that make things so each space has a sense of purpose and each space feels made by hand.

Current project:
We are currently in production on prototyping new lighting fixtures that we hope to sell as well as a new high end restaurant in Atlanta. The chef is a secret but it should be an exciting addition to the Bacchanalia crowd.

Now would ya look at that:
Meet Josh Charles, owner and designer at Flags of Origin. This was photographed in a recent remodel he worked on for the Atlanta HQ of Company 3Beast and Method Studios which specialize in Post Production editing. Deluxe Entertainment selected us to design the company’s East Coast office in Atlanta. Deluxe Entertainment is the US’s largest, and oldest, post-house. They’ve edited films such as Iron Man, Inception, Selma, and Skyfall. At a vast 20,000 square feet, divided between two floors in a Class A Building, this was our largest project to date.
