Hubbardton Forge is lighting up our showroom at Vermont's newest fine furniture and home decor gallery.
Hubbardton Forge lamps are lighting up our showroom!  I snapped this photo today.  From left to right:  the floor lamp is the Almost Infinity, the Simple Lines Table Lamp is in the middle and on the right is the Metra Quad Table Lamp.  What is it in the design of these Vermont made lamps and furniture that ties them together?

Vermont Style Furniture & Hubbardton Forge Lamps

The Hubbardton Forge Fullered Impressions Table Lamp
The Hubbardton Forge Fullered Impressions Table Lamp is paired here with our Natural Vermont Spindle Bed and a Bow Front night stand.

OK, maybe it’s not your classic go-to for perfect pairs but we think they’re a pretty natural combination.  Over the last 2 years we’ve been putting different home decor designs together at Stonehurst, our fine furniture showroom.  I think our best combination is the marriage of Vermont’s handmade wooden furniture and Hubbardton Forge’s hand-forged lamps.  Customers agree!  So we just added a wide selection of Hubbardton Forge table lamps, floor lamps and chandeliers to the home decor section of our website.  Here are some of the most popular lamps that customers are pairing with our Vermont made furniture:

Hubbardton Forge | Lighting Fixtures | Modern American Blacksmiths
I love this picture of George Chandler and Reed Hampton, the founders of Hubbardton Forge, Vermont’s 40 year old handcrafted lighting manufacturer.  The two men met serendipitously in Paul Aschenbach’s art class at the University of Vermont.  How funny that George’s last name means candle maker!

Next stop on my tour of Vermont’s luxury home decor providers is lighting manufacturer, Hubbardton Forge. If you’ve had to buy or install lighting fixtures over the last few decades you’re no doubt aware that most lighting is manufactured in Asia these days and the quality isn’t what it used to be.

Enter Hubbardton Forge of Castleton.  The company 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.

During my visit to the forge I met with Art Director, Wendy Fannin to show her what we’re doing at Stonehurst and discuss possible strategies to cross-promote our products.  Both companies share a passion for simple elegance, traditional craftsmanship and a commitment to environmental stewardship so it seems some synergy could be achieved.

At Vermont Woods Studios we’re looking forward to receiving our first order of Hubbardton forge chandeliers, floor lamps, sconces and table lamps very soon and I’m eager to see how they transform our space.  They’ll be accompanied by fine furniture from studios all around the state, glassware from Simon Pearce, ceramics from Laura Zindel and hopefully linens from Anichini and furniture/pottery from Shackleton-Thomas.

Keep posted on our latest inventory and/or plan a trip to see everything in person at Stonehurst!

Luxury Home Decor from Vermont
Vermont is home to these luxury home decor brands:  Anichini linens, Simon Pearce glassware, Shackleton Thomas furniture and pottery and Hubbardton Forge lighting.  We look forward to offering them all in one place at Stonehurst.

Last week I managed to escape from the office and take a road trip.  The excuse (er… purpose) was to visit Vermont’s top luxury home decor businesses.  Maybe this won’t surprise you — it turns out that in addition to being the fine furniture capital of America, Vermont is second to none in many other types of authentic, handmade home decor.  The Green Mountain State hosts hand blown glass blower Simon Pearce, hand forged lighting manufacturer, Hubbardton Forge, hand loomed artisanal fabrics maker, Anichini and handcrafted furniture and pottery maker, Shackleton Thomas.

We felt these companies should be featured at Stonehurst, making it a complete showroom for Vermont’s best, high quality, handcrafted home goods.  So I was chosen as the lucky one to make the rounds and pitch the idea.  I was met with nothing but kindness and enthusiasm.  Wendy Fannin at Hubbardton Forge, Heather Carey at Anichini, Maria Parrado at Simon Pearce, Charlie Shackleton and Miranda Thomas were all very supportive of our plans (thanks guys!).

Over the next few months we’ll be hard at work, adding these new products to our showroom.  A nice selection of items will also be added to our online store.  Stay tuned for more details as they unfold!
