New to Legend Lighting-SURYA

Surya Logo

Legend Lighting is excited to announce the addition of Surya to our product offering. Surya is a leading manufacturer of high quality rugs and coordinating accessories. As a lighting showroom, their beautiful selection of lamps and mirrors first caught our attention, since these are product categories that we already have in place. However, after being introduced to their extensive selection of rugs, poufs, pillows, throws, accent furniture, art and decorative accents, we decided that a lighting showroom is a perfect place for all that Surya has to offer! When you learn more about Surya and their beautiful, colorful, affordable rugs and home accessories we think you will agree!
The Surya story is quite fascinating. Surya was founded in a small village in India by Surya Tiwari in 1976. The Federated Group, which is now Macy’s, visited India to acquire new products for their retail stores in the United States. They wanted local handmade products and invited interested local manufacturers to apply. The buyers agreed to take a look at Surya Tiwari’s products and he was able to convince them that his products were right for their market. A success story was born. Today Surya services over 5,000 retail, design and e-commerce accounts with over 20,000 products. They exhibit in Atlanta, Dallas, High Point, Las Vegas, New York, Tupelo and New Delhi.
Surya’s rug collection includes over 5,000 designs in a wide range of styles, sizes, textures and colors, from simple solids and bold geometrics to florals and highly detailed classic designs. Both hand crafted and machine made rugs are available, which offers a price point to meet a variety of styles and budgets. Over 75% of the rugs are available in custom sizes and the quote can be easily obtained. Samples are available for all rugs, allowing the customer to view the color, pattern and texture prior to making a purchase. The top 400 designs are guaranteed to be in stock and will ship within 48 hours. A wide selection of indoor/outdoor rugs are available, in addition to “Made in America” styles and rugs designed for kids. The beautiful images below will give you just a taste of what Surya has to offer!

Surya also offers MORE THAN 350 POUFS in a variety of styles, sizes and materials, including both solids and prints, all of which complement trending upholstery and paint colors, as well as the rugs, pillows and other accessories.

Surya Poufs

MORE THAN 150 LAMPS are offered by Surya in a full spectrum of rich tones and finishes, all of which coordinate with the rugs, pillows and the home accessories. Acrylic, ceramic, glass, metal, shell, wood, iron, bamboo, crystal and steel bases are complemented by shade materials of burlap, poly/cotton, silk, linen and seagrass.

Also available are more than 1,000 coordinating pillows, over 150 throws, more than 100 mirror designs, and over 900 pieces of in-stock art in addition to a collection of decorative accents. Additionally, over 100 benches, ottomans, footstools and chairs are available from Surya.
And check out Surya on Facebook, Pinterest, Houzz, You Tube, and Instagram for design ideas!
One last and very special thing to know about Surya is that they are a company that gives back. About 10% of their profits are spent on social causes, including education, nutrition and health care in both India and the United States. Surya rugs are made in rural India by voluntarily employed individuals of legal employment age who earn fair, predictable wages and work in a clean and safe environment. One of their core values is to treat all employees with equality, dignity and respect and particularly to empower women. Watch the fascinating video The Hands and Hearts of Surya to see for yourself. Surya also works hard to incorporate eco-friendly and sustainable materials such as natural and renewable products such as jute, hemp and bamboo silk. They also use upcycled materials such as plastic bottle, sari silk and newspaper in their products. To learn more, click here to watch the video Surya: Making a Difference.
We look forward to sharing all that Surya has to offer with our Legend Lighting customers!  Call us at 512-251-0000 or come by our showroom at 15342 N. IH 35 to learn more!

Simple Elegance – Classic Hand Forged Lighting From Hubbardton Forge

Hand forged lighting fixtures blend art and function

The oval Mackintosh pendant from Hubbardton Forge

Hand forged lighting fixtures are truly pieces of functional art and can make a statement and create a focal point in any setting or décor. One of our favorite lighting lines at Legend Lighting is Hubbardton Forge. Not only do they have wonderfully unique designs, the Hubbardton Forge story is a true American success story merging creativity and business. Founded in 1974 in Vermont, two college students set out on an artistic and entrepreneurial adventure in the business of hand-crafting metal. For nearly four decades Hubbardton Forge has been manufacturing top quality hand forged lighting fixtures. They are the oldest and the largest commercial forge in the USA. Their innovative designs and renown quality has made them one of the most respected brands in the lighting industry. The Hubbardton Forge showroom at the Dallas Lighting Market is always a treat. We love selecting our favorite new designs and bringing them back to the Legend Lighting showroom.

Beautiful and unique finishes

The Link pendant in the new 2013 vintage platinum finish

Hubbardton Forge is well known for the depth and beauty of their finishes. Their translucent finishes show the distressing of the metal by the heat as the piece was made by the craftsman. The opaque finishes provide a full covering of the metal and are the more traditional way to finish and protect metal to keep it from rusting and marring. They introduced four new finishes in 2013. We love the new Vintage Platinum, an aged chrome that has been burnished and polished to a vintage sheen. The new Link pendant is shown here in Vintage Platinum. Hand-rubbed Smoke, Hand-rubbed Mahogany and Hand-rubbed Pewter are the other new finishes.

Quality made to last

A new Limited Lifetime Warranty was also unveiled in January, 2013. The warranty is in effect for the lifetime of the original purchaser and is for residential use only. If a fixture should fail, it will be repaired or replaced with the same or a similar product at no charge to the customer. This warranty is very rare in the lighting industry and speaks to the quality and commitment of the company. Click here to read more about the warranty.

Staying true to the durability, quality and innovation that defines Hubbardton Forge, they have thoughtfully incorporated LED into their lighting designs. They partnered with a local Vermont  LED company to give them the control over the quality of LED’s that go into their fixtures. One example of a new fixture with an LED light source is the Ethos sconce shown below (right).

Make Your Lighting Unique

Customization is also available on most of the Hubbardton Forge lighting products, allowing for custom metal finishes and glass and shade colors. For those customers in a hurry, a quick ship program has also been developed featuring the best selling products in the most popular finish and glass options. These products ship within two days of the receipt of the order.

The only way to fully appreciate these beautiful hand forged lighting fixtures is to see and touch them in person. We have an extensive display of Hubbardton Forge products in the Legend Lighting showroom.  We always welcome the opportunity to show and tell what we love about the line. Let our lighting designers help you choose the perfect piece of Hubbardton Forge art for your space!
