Barnyard is superstar chef Oliver Dabbous' new restaurant in London's Fitzrovia. The restaurant is handsomely equipped with the distinctive Factorylux Verdigris Industrial Lamp Shades. The interior design of the restaurant echoes the Barnyard theme of the menu with corrugated steel and rough hewn wood. It's fair to say the interior of the restaurant has not been universally well-received. The restaurant review by the Independent's Tracey Macleod described the decor "... like a student squat redecorated for a production of Oklahoma!, combines industrial discomfort with kooky rustic flourishes." The verdigris shades are, though, exceptionally attractive. Copper paint is an unconvincing substitute for real copper and it is extremely difficult to achieve high quality copper plating, so the Factorylux shades are spun from a solid disc of pure copper and they are made entirely in the UK for exceptional quality. Verdigris is a natural patina with is formed when copper is exposed to the air and moisture - as can be seen on many copper roofs. For the exterior of the shades, the natural weathering process is accelerated to produce the blue/green patina. Because it's a natural rather than industrial process, each shade has a unique and attractive finish. The interior of the shades are given a simple satin finish which prevents glare from the light source while retaining the beauty of the reddish-brown copper colour. The shades are installed along the bar at Barnyard and over the high tables, and fitted with Factorylux tungsten filament bulbs. The warm colour temperature of the bulbs combined with orange copper interior creates a beautifully warm glow from the shades. The shades are available in two sizes: the 360mm Industrial Verdigris Shade and the 190mm Kitchen Verdigris shade, and both can be configured as complete pendant lights using the Factorylux Made For You pendant light service.
