Hubbardton Forge  is one of the USA’s oldest and largest continuously operating commercial forges today. It all started with two guys, an old barn and some borrowed tools. They had big ideas and a passion for design, respect for high-quality craftsmanship and a belief in the importance of tradition. For more than 45 years, Hubbardton Forge artisans have handcrafted each product, one at a time, in Vermont.



In an age of mass-produced, machine-made products, many companies have abandoned the right way of doing things in favor of maximizing profits. They believe doing things the right way is the only way to do business. They make products where the craftsmanship and skill clearly shows. As our Design Director, David Kitts, notes, “We make heirlooms, not landfill.” Any piece leaving their forge is touched by multiple hands throughout the process of its creation. When you look at a Hubbardton Forge lighting fixture, you’re seeing the artistic achievements of a team dedicated to design.

“We make heirlooms, not landfill.”


By building on traditional techniques while focusing on fine design, Hubbardton Forge has become one of the most respected brands in the lighting industry. Their award-winning team of designers takes inspiration from everywhere – the natural world, sculptures, architecture and their own innate sense of form and function. Whatever the seed of the idea is – once it’s sketched on paper or computer, or shaped from paper, foam or some other choice material, their engineering and forge teams translate it into a sculpture of metal. They don’t take shortcuts – they take the path that produces products they’re proud to stand behind. Click here to see all of their stunning finishes. 



For over 45 years, Hubbardton Forge has been committed to saving energy, preventing waste and reducing its environmental footprint. They use innovative technology to reduce waste. Manufacturing uses recyclable materials.  From concept through final product, Hubbardton Forge designs with energy efficiency in mind. Eco-friendly initiatives they’ve pioneered include: one of the first in Vermont to use powder coating and aqueous metal cleaning; and the first in the world to beta-test a phosphate-free bioremediation cleaner for our wash solutions – a product they continue to use today. They are committed to thinking globally as they act locally.
