Looking for Aged Pewter Finish Chandelier

Posted by kerrys (My Page) on

I'm not finding the chandelier and pendant I want for my kitchen remodel and it is very hard to tell exactly what the finish looks like online.

I want traditional fixtures with a finish that is more "brown/bronze/gold" than the typical "antique pewter" finish, which is silver. I purchased Delta Lockwood aged pewter faucets for my bathroom remodel, and just love the color!

If anyone has any tips on judging the finish color online or has a fixture with a similar finish, please let me know.

Thanks!

You may want to check on Hubardton Forge; beautiful stuff if its your style.

Yes, Hubardton Forge is one of a handful that offers a range of finishes on many models. We're in an "issue" with HF on a large pendant so I cannot yet enthusiastically recommend the company but we are happy with a number of their fixtures we have elsewhere in our house. One of the reasons why we went with HF was we wanted a particular colour (and we liked their quality and style).

After having hung about half a house worth, I would tend to agree that assembly and hanging can be a bear with a few of these.

Its as though the artists who design and create them also provide for the assembly and installaiton parts and instructions. Simple things like short mounting screws (plate to box) and clumsy instructions can make these a booger to hang.

My hand and I both commented that the "average" homeowner without honed skills could indeed have a hell of a time.

But beautiful stuff nonetheless and now that most are up, we certainly enjoy them - the glass is spectacular!
