It’s official – brass in back and stronger than ever. These three styles are not your average brass and are updated to fit in with today’s lifestyles while adding a touch of class, and loads of style.

Hindeman by Hudson Valley Lighting
 A delicate angular aged brass base, reminiscent of the celebrated mid-century Eames lounger anchors the contrasting cut crystal edge of the Hindeman, while a white silk shade and modern finial provide the finishing touch.  Hindeman by Hudson Valley Lighting is a winner which is sure to brighten up any room – fresh and stylish approach to marrying together two classic materials.
Girard by Hudson Valley Lighting

Inspired by historic banker lamps and 1930s Art Deco detailing, Girard marries beautiful form with function.  Adjustable at the neck and mid-arm, and anchored by a domed base, Girard is equipped with a full range dimmer, which also makes it a practical choice for the home.  Also available as a floor lamp and can be specified in vintage brass (as shown), old bronze, or polished nickel.

Puri by Sonneman-A Way of Light

Puri is described as a delicate wisp of silk organza floating on captured air. The linen shade that sits within illuminates the delicate, sheer bronze silk organza when lit, and the black brass finish and simplified shape of Puri’s stem and base offer a contemporary, yet sophisticated lighting solution for the home. Puri is also available in satin nickel with silver organza and as a floor lamp, pendant, sconce, or flush mount application.

On another note, in case you missed my post last week on the Pasadena Showcase House of Design, Hudson Valley lighting was well represented throughout the show house.  I was especially drawn to the large pendants that hung above the pewter kitchen counter.  It was not until I returned home that I realized that Massena is also made by Hudson Valley Lighting, a company whose style and commitment to quality I admire.
