New Designs

29th Mar 2016

For some time now, we here at Authentic Designs have been creating custom fixtures for various decorating, design and architectural firms, in addition to our catalogue of hand-built lighting fixtures. 

Some of these lights are quite contemporary, and some use unique, one-of-a-kind architectural elements, which we have incorporated into the new designs.

As seen above, from left to right:

  • Verdigris copper lantern built for Tudor Revival home in W. Hartford CT. Right hand is 1920's original, at left is our copy.
  • 32" cage light, antiqued brass. Developed & built from original design for custom installation in contemporary ocean-front home.
  • Copper hood light designed for an indoor garden conservatory. Can accommodate regular or T5 full spectrum bulbs (grow lights).

Nina Mooney, a designer based in New York & Vermont, commissioned us to utilize this antique single-tree wagon axle in creating a custom lighting fixture, to illuminate an antique pool table at the the Hilltop Inn. Without altering its finish or form, we adapted the original artifact and custom-built three coated copper lampshades; repurposed axle tree was carefully wired with a brass frame that blends nicely with the original hardware.
