Classic-style door hardware, engineered for new construction or historic renovation, lacquer-coated, solid brass, patterned after original antique hardware, passage, privacy, mortise lock, or dummy sets and cabinet hardware and accessories.
Authentic Designs builds historically accurate period lighting fixtures by hand in our rural Vermont workshops. Our bespoke designs include Colonial, Federalist and other Early American designs, Victorian, Art Deco, Arts & Crafts and Mid-Century.
Lighting has always been driven by technology and available sources of energy. As tech got more advanced there was an explosion of innovation in the shapes, styles, and placement of light fixtures and lamps.
The entryway or porch light looks right when it illuminates the style antecedents of the house. Early lighting designs in copper or iron have been joined by lantern types patterned on those in French monasteries, English castles, and California’s iconic Arts & Crafts houses.
