This company was concocted in a barn in the mid-70s. Today, Hubbardton Forge stands as one of the oldest commercial forges in the United States. Based in Castleton, VT. They employs 230 hardworking Vermonters. Among the 230 employees, Hubbardton Forge hosts their own team of engineers and designers. Unique and modern designs are a part of what makes this American-made brand so appealing. There is no other way to illuminate your handcrafted furniture than with hand-forged lighting.

To minimize damage caused by global shipping operations, all materials are locally sourced. In addition to the eco-friendly benefits of working with local vendors, it also expands their support of the community beyond their own employees.
They are innovators in environmentalism. From their powder coating and aqueous metal cleaning techniques, to being among the first to run a phosphate-free bioremediation system. They recycle and conserve water and use it tow ash metals for up to 12 months.
