Reminiscent of a loosely closed flower blossom, the Cirque Chandelier holds a small candelabra bulb nestled inside each petal-like section. This unique design allows for a zen-like illumination to be cast on its surrounds while offering an alluring focal point for any room in your home.

A Tour of the Forge

Last month I joined our Sales team for a tour of the Hubbardton Forge foundary in Castleton, Vermont. We’re sending our thanks to Amy McGuire and the entire team of artisans at the Forge- it was an exciting learning experience.  Hubbardton Forge is amazing.

Hubbardton Forge History

The forge was established in 1974 by two guys in a barn who set out to revive the forgotten craft of hand-forging raw metal into contemporary designs. Today the business started by George Chandler and Reed Hampton is one of the largest contemporary commercial forges in America. Forty years of practicing time honored principles have built an international reputation for innovative designs, simplicity and integrity.

The Caveletti table lamp features a contemporary geometric design highlighted in an artful asymmetrical grid-like pattern, both industrial and organic in form. The overall look is finished with a solid rectangular base giving it a grounded appearance. The perfect juxtaposition of dainty elegance and solid strength.

Customizable Light Fixtures

Hubbardton Forge lamps are hand-forged in Vermont of recycled wrought iron.  Each lamp is made to order and has customizable metal finish options and lamp shades.  Like our furniture, they are guaranteed for a lifetime. Fully custom designs are also available for designers who have a unique vision in mind.
