Cutting-Edge Fixtures Colored by the Classics

Hudson Valley Lighting draws from history’s aesthetic movements to create its portfolio of contemporary fixtures. The brand’s in-house team of artisans harnesses their design knowledge to conceptualize products informed by the past, yet suited for the constantly evolving demands of today’s interiors. Located in New York’s Hudson Valley, the company’s designers find inspiration at every turn—in Manhattan’s Art Deco glamour, New England colonial architecture, the industrial grit of 1800’s factories, and more.

Desmond’s angle-cut arms and knurled bulb base, riffing on a classic motorcycle, evoke a timeless sense of Americana.

Boca’s spherical glass diffusers, bisected into metal and glass, are arrayed in a cage-like display.

Hudson Valley Lighting’s team of artisans uses an in-depth procedure of collaborative drafting and redrafting, machined precision in production, and a series of handcrafted treatments to fabricate each fixture. The result is an impressive offering of pendants, sconces, flush mounts, chandeliers, and portables that demonstrate meticulous attention to detail while making a strong aesthetic statement.
