Hand Crafted Lighting

from old world reproductions to modern originals

We began, more than 20 years ago, with a small shop that produced lighting fixtures. Most of our customers were interior designers. Today, we design and build a wide variety of lighting fixtures, from indoor and outdoor lanterns, to chandeliers, standing lamps, wall sconces, and all sorts of special, one of a kind pieces. Our customers have grown to include homeowners, designers, architects, contractors, and business owners.

What hasn't changed in all that time is the care and attention that we give to each lighting project. As always, our light fixtures are crafted with skill and precision. They meet safety and electrical standards for commercial and residential use, and they are built to last.

Whether you have an old lantern you'd like to have restored, have a picture of an antique fixture you'd like to have made, or a new original design, Ironwood Designs is the place to bring it.
