Local PartnershipsMaking a light footprint is important to Hubbardton Forge. We source domestically and partner with local Vermont vendors whenever possible. By working with a Vermont-based LED manufacturer, Vermont glass-blowers, and local maple wood crafters, we can illuminate our design pieces in ways never imagined. Our designers are no longer constrained to "what's available." Instead, they can work with our local vendors to have the LED or glass components designed to complement the fixtures they're creating. The proximity also allows us fast, innovative, and customized solutions. "I am delighted to be partnering with another like-minded local company. Hubbardton Forge shares the same ethos we have of crafting fine furnishings for the home right here in Vermont".—Simon Pearce
Taking the InitiativeHubbardton Forge creates designs with energy efficiency in mind from concept through final product. Eco-friendly initiatives we've pioneered include one of the first in Vermont to use powder coating and aqueous metal cleaning. And the first to beta-test a phosphate-free bioremediation wash system called Proceco. Two Proceco machines are utilized today for all our steel and aluminum wash system needs. Recycled and conserved, the water is used to wash metals for up to a year. No waste water ever goes down the drain. The de-ionized and reverse osmosis water for washing the metals is done in-house.
RecyclingAs a company, we consider environmental impact at every level of our decision-making process. Recycling plays a significant role in that. We use a recycled, non-toxic, and biodegradable material named ExpandOS. This product allows us to safely package and ship many of our Vermont Modern fixtures and various glass elements. It provides a versatile, recyclable, and environmentally friendly packaging solution. All of our wooden pallets, scrap copper, aluminum, and steel are recycled or repurposed by local companies. The raw steel used to create lighting is produced from up to 100% recycled materials; even the excess heat from the ovens is captured and used to supplement the plant's heating.
Hubbardton Forge has become one of the most respected brands in the lighting industry for its innovative design. Our award-winning team of designers takes inspiration from everything they encounter. Once rendered, our engineering and forge teams translate designs into metal sculptures. This environment of collaboration among designers and engineers, welders, forgers, finishers, and others all-under-one-roof in Vermont sets our people and our work apart from the competition.

All fixtures must be off when cleaning or polishing.Painted or Slumped Glass: Gently wipe the surface of the glass with a soft, damp cloth. Never scrub, use an abrasive, or any solvent-based cleaning products. You may use warm water to clean the glass. Air dry.
Art or Blown Glass: Gently wipe the surface of the glass with a soft, damp cloth. Never scrub or use an abrasive. You may also use warm water or glass cleaner. Air dry.
Indoor Finishes: Use a dry soft cloth for dusting purposes. Do not use heavy cleaners; this could damage the powder coating on your finish.
Outdoor Finishes: Methods for cleaning the powder coat finish depends on the surface soil characteristics. Use water, mild soap, or detergent with a sponge or soft cloth for light surface soils. A mild solvent, such as mineral spirits, can remove grease, sealants, or caulking compounds for medium to heavy soils. Always spot test on a hidden area to ensure no coating damage or staining occurs from cleaning materials.
Microsuede, Flax, and Linen Shades: Use a soft, dry cloth or a “feather duster” to remove any dust accumulation. Do not apply any fabric cleaner or water to the fabric on the shade; doing so could permanently damage the fabric.
Spun Amber and Spun Frost Shades: Gently wash with mild, soapy warm water. Do not use anything abrasive on the shades as it may damage the fibers. Dab the dirty area with a soft cloth.
Cork Shades: As our cork shades are made of real cork and are delicate, dry dusting is the only recommended cleaning.
Leather: Leather is a natural product; straps can have color variations and imperfections in the hides. This leather can be oiled or dyed to enhance the look. For cleaning, wipe the entire surface with a soft cloth and cool water to even out any abrasions or stains. Do not spot rub, for it will darken only that area. Occasional use of Aniline Leather Cleaner, Conditioner, & Protector, or Aniline Leather Maintenance Kit is recommended. Do not use saddle soap; household cleaners containing harsh chemicals, alcohol, or ink removers.
Brass Buckles: Brass components are unfinished and may darken over time. Brass can be brought back to a polished state by hand, but take care not to get any polishing media onto the leather straps.
Copper Accents: The unique finish on our copper accents is created by heating and oxidizing the surface of the raw copper. When dusting, gently wipe the surface with a soft, damp cloth, using a spray wax if desired. A light application of paste wax once a year is desirable for extra protection and to achieve a deep, rich finish. Never scrub or use an abrasive. Never use ammonia or solvent-based cleaning products on the copper surface.
Crystal Decorations: Polish your product carefully with a soft, lint-free cloth, or clean it by hand with lukewarm water. Do not soak your crystal products in water.
Wood: Use a soft, dry cloth for dusting purposes, do not rub. Never scrub or use an abrasive solvent-based cleaning product, as this could damage the finish. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
Slate: Gently wipe the surface of the slate with a soft, damp cloth, do not soak. Never scrub, use an abrasive, or use any solvent-based cleaning products. A cleaner designed specifically for natural stone or slate may be used. Air dry.
Preventative: Use coasters under all glasses, particularly those containing alcohol or citrus juices, and place hot dishes on trivets.
Spills: Immediately blot spills with a paper towel. Flush the area with a mix of warm water and mild dishwashing soap. Rinse several times. Dry the area thoroughly with a soft cloth. Repeat as necessary. *Never use abrasive scrubbers or rough-woven cloths that could scratch the marble. Do not use products containing lemon, vinegar, or other acids that will dull or etch the marble surface. Stay away from scouring powders or abrasive creams and rust removers containing hydrofluoric acid; these will damage marble.
Alabaster: Use a soft, dry cloth or a “feather duster” to remove any dust accumulation. Raw alabaster should not be polished with wax or cleaned with wet or acidic cleaners.
