Wequasset Inn & Resort


Authentic Designs handcrafted over 75 lights for this exquisite resort, situated on the Massachusetts coast and exposed to harsh year round weather. Our lanterns have been in place for over 20 years and have aged beautifully, while staying structurally sound against the elements.

To Authentic Designs,

I am just writing to say that after 15 years we are still so thrilled with our original lighting  fixtures that we purchased for our home. We built our reproduction New England farmhouse fourteen years ago in Boxborough, MA and carefully searched for the perfect lighting. After a trip to Vermont we came upon Authentic Designs and followed through with three simply beautifully designed chandeliers. Their light has been with us through-out so many occasions, from everyday dinners to wedding celebrations. We love them and are so appreciate of your skill and craftsmanship. We frequently recommend your company to friends and will continue to do so. Thank- you so much once again for our beautiful chandeliers.

We’ve received our first order from Authentic Designs and we wanted to tell you how pleased we are with the pieces. The CH 197 is a special favorite. And the custom sizes of the CH-239 are perfect. The clients are very pleased. Thanks for making us look so good…

 Well, it is not often one comes home to be welcomed by an impressively dodecahedronal box awaiting one in the front hallway.  Even the packaging is an objet d'art!  (And cheers to Authentic Designs for its dedication to reducing, reusing and recycling packing materials.)

These are really great looking.  You did a great job.
