Translucent Finishes

Our translucent finishes show off the character and texture of the metal beneath…

Our finishing process utilizes the methods that will bring out the beauty of the materials – from hand-rubbing, to running through our polishing process. Powder coating is more resistant to impact, moisture, chemicals, and UV light than liquid paints. The eco-benefits of powder coating include low to no VOCs, the capability to recapture and reuse overspray and the ability to return exhaust.

MAHOGANY: Deep reddish tones with some black undertones. Powder-coated finish.

BRONZE: Warm bronze with some gold hints, oil rubbed bronze. Powder-coated finish.

DARK SMOKE: Charcoal tones that enhance the forging. Powder-coated finish.

BURNISHED STEEL: Look of natural metal, provides the aesthetic of raw steel. Powder-coated finish.


Opaque Finishes

Opaque finishes showcase the texture and character created during handcrafting. Aluminum finished in opaque delivers a smooth, modern look in your choice of colors.

GLOSS WHITE: Clean, bright, striking white opaque finish.

BLACK: Deep satin black. Powder-coated finish.

NATURAL IRON: Mottled pewter appearance with “orange peel” texture, gun metal gray. Powder-coated finish.

VINTAGE PLATINUM: A beautifully polished, aged chrome look. Powder-coated finish.

SOFT GOLD: A subtle and elegant champagne gold. Powder-coated finish.

TERRA MICRO-SUEDE: A warm brownstone and rust red dyed fabric in the micro-suede family of fabrics.

NATURAL ANNA: A more contemporary, white fabric with a tighter, smoother weave compared to the Natural Linen.

DOESKIN MICRO-SUEDE: Softer, richer fabrics, our micro-suedes are hand-dyed and distressed to create a subtle patterning with warm brown and tan overtones, especially when lit.

ECLIPSE MICRO-SUEDE: A dark grey alternative in the micro-suede family of fabrics, for those who are looking for a more opaque shade option.

FLAX: Our most popular transitional, off-white fabric with the same weave as on our Natural Anna shade.

SPUN FROST: A white, non-woven fabric imparts a light, contemporary feel.

SPUN AMBER: A warm, amber alternative to the Spun Frost non-woven fabric.

NATURAL CORK: A renewable natural cork veneer which glows dramatically when lit.  


Blown Glass and Art Glass

OPAL GLASS: Our most popular glass choice. A neutral flat white when unlit, Opal radiates the warmth of the inner bulb when lit

PEARL GLASS: A matte, light cream color when unlit, it glows warm with very unique, delicate patterns of undulating clouds when lit.  

STONE GLASS: A transitional glass, Stone has a combination of earthy hues of warm ivory, beige and sand with flecks of grey striations suggesting natural stone when unlit. It takes on a warmer glow when lit.

SEEDED CLEAR GLASS: The encapsulated bubbles in our Seeded Clear Glass veil its interior when unlit, but become alive with highlights when illuminated. 

WATER GLASS: Thick, wavy patterns, similar to an antique window, reflect the light with a slight sparkle. Water Glass retains the same characteristics when lit or unlit.

AMBER SWIRL ART GLASS: Shiny-surfaced Amber Swirl Art Glass is a flowing blend of ivory and light caramel colored glass. It provides a warm glow when lit.

WHITE ART GLASS: Shiny-surfaced White Art Glass is a lively blend of swirled cool white tones. It gives off a clean, natural light.

IVORY ART GLASS: Shiny-surfaced Ivory Art Glass is a blend of antique ivory and cream colored glass with a warm tone that falls between our White and Amber Swirl Art Glass.

TOPAZ ART GLASS: Neutral deep brown when unlit, Topaz Art Glass dramatically transforms into a dynamic blend of rich and warm glowing swirls when lit.

SAND GLASS: Sand Glass’s sandblasted surface is a natural beige-white color when both lit and unlit. The even tones of Sand Glass are a warm alternative to Opal. Sand Glass’s overall hue most closely matches that of Stone Glass.


Hand-blown Glass

AO GLASS A creative collaboration between two Vermont companies, Hubbardton Forge and AO Glass, brings an exquisite collection of lighting fixtures. Combining techniques of sculpting metal and blowing glass by hand, it demonstrates the design possibilities borne from a dedication to hand-crafted quality and artisanal pride. This hand-blown glass is offered in four subtle colors and clear. Other colors, limited only by your imagination, are available on a custom basis.

Please note: Small blemishes and bubbles are inherent in hand-blown glass and are not considered defects. Due to the nature of the glass-making process, the pattern and balance of color in the glass may vary significantly within a piece and from one piece to another. It is the individuality of each piece that is so sought after.

We strive to show the most accurate color possible. However, due to the limitations and variations of the photography process, representations here may not be exact. Please visit your Hubbardton Forge showroom to see actual glass samples.
