Believe it or not, some design professionals still think Hammerton is exclusively about pine cones and elk heads.
While crafting organic mountain rustic lighting for the burgeoning Park City market got us started back in the 1990′s, the truth is that our design breadth has expanded dramatically since then. Today, Hammerton encompasses a wide selection of transitional and contemporary styles. For example, our versatile Contemporary Collection, originally launched in 2005, represents well over half of our business today.
As part of our move to incorporate a contemporary aesthetic in the Hammerton product mix, we took an industry-leading position by working with a number of new materials. In fact, we were the first lighting manufacturer to incorporate woven steel mesh and ecoresins into our designs. More recently, our Lightspann acquisition in 2011 expanded our materials capabilities into all forms of artisan glass — blown, slumped, fused, cast — and further broadened our contemporary and transitional offerings. Today, our extensive palette of materials extends well beyond traditional mountain organic materials like steel, rawhide and mica to include textiles, fabrics, parchments, ecoresins, mesh, stone, aluminum, crystal and much more.
To many design professionals, we’re best known for our custom capabilities. The majority of the lights we fabricate involve some element of custom design, whether it’s scaling a catalog light to suit a particular space, incorporating customer-specified materials, or creating unique, one-of-a-kind fixtures entirely from scratch.
Of course, we still craft beautiful organic lighting with lots of handcrafted pine cones, but if your decor leans in another direction, make sure to give Hammerton a close look. We think you’ll be surprised by what you see.
