Connecticut Lighting Centers is proud to be a participating vendor of the 2013 Project Home. Project Home is a partnership between FOX CT, Lovely Development and the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Greater Hatford that built a home from the ground up.

Connecticut Lighting Centers provided all the lighting and ceiling fans for the home. Lighting fixtures included a foyer fifteen-light chandelier, kitchen pendants, bathroom vanity lights and flush mounts, a bedroom ceiling fan, a dining room pendant and chandelier, numerous trend setting table lamps, outdoor lanterns and much more.

The finished home was open to the public for tours in May. Net proceeds from the sale of the home will benefit member programs and services of the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Greater Hartford. Proceeds from the home tours will benefit Camp Courant, a free summer program for Hartford area children that helps them develop positive relationships, learn and have fun.

Hubbardton Forge Display

Connecticut Lighting Centers recently added a new 250 square foot Hubbardton Forge gallery in our Hartford showroom. Hubbardton Forge is the oldest and largest commercial forge in the country that hand forges iron lighting. Aspiring artists and entrepreneurs George and Reed Hampton, started blacksmithing in 1974 in an old Vermont barn and became known for their innovative designs.

About Our New Hubbardton Forge Display

Our new Hubbardton Forge display is not only a collection of beautiful lighting, but a tribute to American hand forged iron that is crafted with excellence. We are proud to feature a Made in U.S.A vendor, especially one that is made right here in New England.

In this new display, you will be transported to a stunning collection that is artistic, timeless and distinctly New England. In addition to the lighting featured, there are images and information on the companies’ history, values and the people behind the iron. It truly is a unique part of our showroom.

The products featured in the display are best described as “sculptured lighting.” You will find hand-forged iron table lamps, floor lamps, wall sconces, chandeliers, pendants and flush mounts. Whether you are remodeling or building a new home, or looking for that perfect accent, our new Hubbardton Forge display has an array of lighting that will transform the look of any room into a work of art.
