Hubbardton Forge Lighting Review

Hubbardton Forge Lighting Rating: If you like the idea of owning hand-crafted fixtures, then Hubbardton Forge is the right choice for you. They have been pounding, welding, shaping and styling wrought iron materials since 1974, making them the oldest commercial forge in the country. George Chandler and Reed Hampton keep their craft “old school” and eco friendly throughout the years. This is why Hubbardton Forge is one of our favorites. Integrity and Simplicity, these are two traits that best describe Hubbardton Forge. We like how they have revived the craft of hand-forging raw metal and incorporating it to modern decorative fixtures. Aside from their other awards, Hubbardton Forge is a proud owner of two Pinnacle Design Awards including the Green Leaf Award for Eco-friendly design. It is no surprise why Hubbardton Forge is one of the most well respected companies in the industry. Another thing Hubbardton Forge is well known for is their “organic” designs. Their designs are quite environmentally friendly, which means they avoid using materials that are harmful to our environment. And this is what sets Hubbardton Forge apart from their counterparts. Their ideas are well represented in their chandeliers, different types of lamps, wall sconces, flush and semi flush ceiling fixtures, and outdoor fixtures. All these items come in great finishes as well as glass quality. And for those who are light sensitive, they have different glass and shade options to suit your taste.

Insider’s tip: You might think that just because they are hand-crafted they won’t look as good as those machine made fixtures that other companies make. Actually, we find their attention to detail excellent. Each item is well scrutinized and their craftsmanship is good. They have one of the most refreshing designs in the industry and their eco-friendly designs are very innovative. Pricing is average and they certainly are of good value.

Caution:
Hubbardton Forge uses some of the toughest materials available so most of their fixtures are heavier than others. However, we expect this because their products are made to last. Also, we think their designs do not necessarily depend on trend changes, so it won’t get outdated in a couple of years.

Bottom line:
Hubbardton Forge is one of our favorites. And with good reason, they are makers of durable and beautiful fixtures. We have watched them closely throughout the years and they never disappoint. Their Eco-friendly designs are very dependable. And we like how they do things at Hubbardton Forge, staying true to the craft started long ago. All their prices are average and most showrooms will feature their selections so finding their fixtures is not hard. We think each home should have atleast one Hubbardton Forge fixture.

    We purchased 2 high-end lighting fixtures from Hubbardton forge that were “special order” (not stock). In between placing our order and receiving the fixtures, we lost our almost-completed new home in a wildland fire (the week before we were to receive our C of O and move in). Despite the loss of the home in this way, HF refused to give us a full refund on the 2 fixtures, and charged us a 25% “restocking fee” (even though the fixtures were not stock to begin with), which amounted to hundreds of dollars out of our pockets. Of course they then had the 2 brand new fixtures to sell at full price to someone else. Will NOT do business with these guys again.
