Hudson Valley Lighting
Founded in the 1980s by David Littman in New York, Hudson Valley Lighting designs and builds beautiful fixtures. They value out-of-box experience and built-to-last quality.
The new collection by Kelly Behun for Hudson Valley Lighting has bold shapes and beautiful materials. Range from Alexander Rodchenko’s 1920s Russian Constructivist sketches inspired table lamp to conical pendant with brass accents.
Kelly took great care when selecting the lamp shades, she wants them to be as pretty when illuminated as when they are not. And that’s why the fixtures could be mistaken as sculptures, powered on or not.
There are more than 30 offerings, including pendants, sconces, portable lights. And the materials range from ceramic, glass, painted enamel, alabaster and marble. For example, Tiptoe table lamps combine a smooth organic body of ceramic in matte finish with brass and linen components, contemporary and classic; Traverse table lamp has a brass plate slices through Nero Marquina marble and cream enamel, is at same time artfully asymmetrical and solidly balanced; Construct wall lamp comprises black and cream enamel, Nero Marquina marble and off-white linen, and an appealing amount of Aged Brass.
The new collection was going to debut at High Point Market 2020 Spring before canceled due to covid-19.
“It was fascinating to start with something as simple as a rudimentary sketch and follow it all the way through the process, refining as I went,” says Behun.
