Simple Elegance – Classic Hand Forged Lighting From Hubbardton Forge

Hand forged lighting fixtures blend art and function

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

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!
