Hubbardton Forge vs. Quoizel Wrought Iron Lighting
Hubbardton Forge and Quoizel are both great lighting companies. These two brands are very popular in the lighting industry. They offer classic, transitional, and contemporary light fixtures. Both specialize in interior and exterior lighting as well as some accessories. At Yale, we now have a Hubbardton Forge and a Quoizel shop, where you can see some of their most popular light fixtures on display.

Hubbardton Forge Lighting
Hubbardton Forge is one of the very few lighting brands made in the USA. They are designed and manufactured in the state of Vermont. Founded in 1974, it is now one of the most respected brands in the lighting industry. Hubbardton Forge is known for its high end quality and hand forged products. All fixtures are hand forged from raw metal/wrought iron. This brand allows the option to customize most of their products by choosing any of their metal finishes and any glass/shade colors. Hubbardton Forge has been recognized for their simplicity and integrity design....and all they really produce is wrought iron.
Quoizel Lighting was founded in 1930. Quoizel works with designers from all over the world to design their light fixtures. This brand offers many traditional style lighting as well as some contemporary. They have some really nice lighting at a reasonable cost which is good if you have a tight budget. Quoizel lighting is manufactured in China and has limited metal finish and glass options compared to Hubbardton Forge.
These two companies both offer some really great lighting fixtures. I love Hubbardton Forge lights for their craftsmanship and also for the variety of finishes and shade color options available. It’s also made in the USA which is a plus. Hubbardton manufactures a better light than Quoizel without question. The finish is richer and the designs are more authentic.
However, for my own home I bought Quoizel because I wanted some nice lights at a more affordable price.
Let's look at the two most popular styles of each:

As I have said, Hubbardton Forge is the better light in every way and has more styles and options, but Quoizel due to mass Chinese manufacturing of limited styles is less expensive.
