New Coastal Finish from Hubbardton Forge Protects Outdoor Lighting

Posted on Sep 02, 2016 by Andrea

 

Back in June, we journeyed to Dallas for the second installment of "Lightovation," the biannual event where lighting manufacturers unveil their newest products.

We fell in love with many exciting items, but one stood out: Hubbardton Forge's new coastal outdoor finish. This finish is exciting for a couple of reasons:

1. Hubbardton Forge designed the powder-coated finish specifically for harsh coastal environments. Hubbardton Forge defines coastal as within a 20-mile radius of Boston-- meaning that the metro Boston area can also benefit from this specially formulated finish. Hubbardton put a lot of work into perfecting its formula: they tested the finish in a 5% saline mist 24/7 to make sure the fixtures didn't rust, peel, or flake. Like we said: GREAT news for outdoor lighting. (Psst: we recently toured Hubbardton Forge—get all the details.)

 

2. Hubbardton offers the finish in six incredible colors. Allow us to show them off…

Hubbardton Forge's New Coastal Mahogany Finish

Coastal Mahogany. Mahogany is such a classy color, isn't it? Imagine a lighting product in this finish at your front door. Talk about an elegant entrance!

Coastal Bronze. We love the subtle look of this bronze. It has just the right amount of oomph. Nothing too flashy.

Hubbardton's Coastal Dark Smoke Finish

Coastal Dark Smoke. Sleek, sophisticated, and dare we say sexy? This color is all of those things—and then some.

Hubbardton's Coastal Burnished Steel

Coastal Burnished Steel. This color exudes strength and power. It's the finish we suspect Superman would choose for his outdoor lighting.

Hubbardton's Coastal Black Finish

Coastal Black. A classic color that always works, especially when it looks as lovely as this.

Coastal Natural Iron

Coastal Natural Iron. They weren't kidding when they used the word "natural." This almost-pewter really does look like a color Mother Nature invented.

We're already seeing this new finish on display in our Waltham showroom-- and will soon see it in Allston. In the meantime, check out the latest Hubbardton Forge products that we currently have on display.
