The influences continue to expand in the design of today’s lighting and metalwork. You can find hammered work reminiscent of Dirk Van Erp and the metal shops of the Roycrofters . . . proto-modern designs inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh . . . geometric Prairie School designs and Asian-influenced work.
Arts & Crafts hardware is produced in iron, brass, copper, and bronze with beautiful patina-rich finishes. Lighting may be the most visible and affordable way to give rooms a period ambiance. Designed from the beginning for electricity, Arts & Crafts lamps and fixtures combine utility with beauty in an unprecedented way. Whether yours is a shingled cottage on the Atlantic or a Storybook Tudor in California, you can find just the right vocabulary.
