So, how do we achieve our mission of improving the lives of homeowners through high-quality lighting? For starters, we carry products from the best and most innovative manufacturers.

This week, we’re shining the light on Hubbardton Forge. Read on for a closer look at this American success story, along with tips for incorporating its extraordinary fixtures into your home.
About Hubbardton Forge
From its humble origins to its above-and-beyond commitment to craftsmanship, you won’t find another lighting company like Hubbardton Forge. Started by two college friends in a Castleton, Vermont barn nearly half a century ago, the company has since grown to 230 employees strong. From its designers and makers to its customer service team, every Hubbardton Forge worker shares the same vision: providing beautiful, handcrafted lighting that achieves the perfect blend of form and function.
We can think of no better way to encapsulate the company’s perspective than its own words: “people of passion who make products with purpose.”
Hubbardton Forge Lighting Styles
Hubbardton Forge’s design-driven team draws from a variety of inspirations, including everything from the natural world to the innate sense of form and function each individual possesses. Once the idea is captured, engineers and artisans head to the forge, where they translate that vision into a metal work of art.
Because of the company's diverse influences, Hubbardton Forge lighting styles are equally unique, ranging from sleek and minimalist to architectural and intricate. Despite their differences, every Hubbardton Forge chandelier, Hubbardton Forge outdoor post light, Hubbardton Forge wall lantern, Hubbardton Forge pendant, Hubbardton Forge small pendant, and Hubbardton Forge outdoor fixture embodies the characteristics for which the company is known: creativity, talent, passion, vision, and dedication. Whether you’re shopping for lighting for an indoor space like a bathroom, bedroom, dining room, or living room, or you’re searching for fixtures that will brighten and beautify your outdoor areas, there’s a Hubbardton Forge product for you.
The Hubbardton Forge Difference
One of Hubbardton Forge’s most distinctive features is its status as one of the country’s most storied commercial forges with a near-50-year legacy of producing every piece to order. While many companies have discarded time-tested ways of doing things for faster, easier, and less responsible methods, Hubbardton Forge continues to honor the past by eschewing the move to mass-produced and machine-made processes.
At the same time, the company is also relentlessly forward-thinking. This combination of traditional techniques and modern fine design is yet another hallmark of Hubbardton Forge.
No mention of the brand is complete without highlighting its prioritization of sustainability. In addition to working with iron, glass, and other natural materials, the company strives to conserve resources and minimize its environmental impact. This includes everything from using recycled materials to local sourcing and partnerships.
Its commitment to sustainability has made Hubbardton Forge an industry leader. Not only was it one of Vermont’s first manufacturers to utilize powder coating and aqueous metal cleaning, but it also globally pioneered the use of a phosphate-free bioremediation cleaner for its wash solutions and continues to use that approach today.
The drive to make things easier is not part of Hubbardton Forge’s ethos. Rather, this groundbreaking lighting manufacture is all about making things better. For example, it utilizes an exclusive metal finishing process to achieve next-level durability. The company also recognizes individuality by offering a selection of finish options ranging from opaque to translucent and coastal outdoor.
How to Find and Choose the Best Hubbardton Forge Lighting Fixtures
Hubbardton Forge’s products are much more than mere light fixtures. They’re an expression of everything the company stands for. Many homeowners are drawn to its heirloom products because of their built-in character – it’s why we’re drawn to them, too.
