Hudson Valley Lighting® Illuminates PBS’s 35th Season of THIS OLD HOUSE®

Hudson Valley Lighting®, part of the Littman Brands family of lighting, is highlighted in the 35th season of the Emmy Award-winning PBS television series THIS OLD HOUSE®. For more than 20 years, Hudson Valley Lighting has produced quality, classically inspired contemporary and traditional lighting fixtures. In the second project of the season, the THIS OLD HOUSE TV crew has taken on one of the youngest homes in its 35 year history: a 1966 Colonial Revival in Lexington, Massachusetts. Interior designer Robin Gannon chose 19 of Hudson Valley Lighting’s premier fixtures to add timeless beauty and light to this exquisite renovation project.

In the Lexington project, THIS OLD HOUSE takes on a renovation and an addition to the 1966 Colonial Revival. Home to a family with three girls, the 2,900-square-foot frame house added an addition over the existing two-car garage to create separate bedrooms for the girls, as well as a new full bathroom, laundry room and small sitting room. Other areas also received major updates. The 40-year-old kitchen needed a serious overhaul, including a smart reconfiguration of adjacent spaces to allow for a new mudroom, powder room, butler’s pantry and home office. Hudson Valley’s elegant Hampton globe pendants in polished nickel are used throughout the kitchen over the two islands. Each clear glass globe features elegant chain suspension and is anchored by a solid metal post. In addition, the butler’s pantry features a Hampton flush mount in polished nickel with a whimsical star cut pattern etched in the glass. Hudson Valley Lighting’s Gresham Park chandelier is also hung over the kitchen table. With clean lines, sharp angles and rounded accents, Gresham Park’s solid brass frame and stem in polished nickel blend seamlessly with the Hampton pendants.

The dining room features the gorgeous Waterloo pendant with hand-cut crystal prisms and glass candlesticks, offering a playful cast of light across the polished nickel surfaces. Bolton sconces in polished nickel also add warmth to the dining room. Two traditional Phoenicia sconces with pleated shades and a traditional, round Middlebury flush mount with fluted edges, both in polished nickel, were used in the dramatic guest bath. Other fixtures include a Gresham Park sconce in the great room and Keswick sconces in the kids’ bath.

“We are honored to be a part of the award-winning THIS OLD HOUSE television series and were happy to donate a variety of fixtures including our Hampton pendants, Hampton flush mount and Gresham Park chandelier to the open kitchen design," said David Littman, founder and chairman of Hudson Valley Lighting. “This beautiful remodel is a tremendous representation of how Hudson Valley Lighting’s meticulous quality and attention to detail can upgrade and transform any space.”

“I have always been a fan of Hudson Valley Lighting and have chosen countless classic and contemporary designs in many of my hospitality and residential projects," said interior designer Robin Gannon. “Hudson Valley Lighting was the obvious choice for this project. The Hampton pendants add a historical and timeless quality to this updated kitchen, and they glisten in the sunlight even when they aren’t lit. I was also thrilled to add the stunning crystal Waterloo chandelier to the dining room.”
