The Perfect Marriage of Glass and Metal in Arroyo Craftsman Lighting Fixtures When you think of elegant, contemporaneous designs, Scandinavian designers come to mind. You would hardly expect American design to match theirs. However, Arroyo Craftsman proves otherwise and distinguishes itself as a producer of the finest light fixtures. What you will note is the perfect marriage of glass and metal in Arroyo Craftsman lighting fixtures that will appeal to the discerning few. Glass and metal are difficult to combine in an artistic creation. However, Arroyo Craftsman has not one but dozens of imaginatively designed lighting fixtures. Arroyo Craftsman offers this wonderful magical mix in different series, each with a distinctive style and appeal. They really shine in outdoor lighting fixtures not that their indoor fixtures are any less charming, whatever the series. Take the A-Line series. Inspired by the West Coast Arts and Crafts Movement, this series has a signature look with metal frames holding together glass in imaginatively designed brilliant collection of indoor and outdoor lighting fixtures. The Ashville series owes inspiration to Frank Lloyd Wright, the brilliant architect of some truly memorable buildings. The series exudes earthiness with the use of natural minerals in the hanging pendants and wall sconces. The Huntington series too draws inspiration from the same source but emphasizes the T-Bar overlay design in the various wall mounts. The Berkeley series is all about outdoor hanging pendants with decidedly Victorian and Tudor accents, drawing inspiration from the works of Gustav Stickle and Dirk Van Erp. It is bold, beautiful and creates an aura of classic vintage charm outdoor. If you are looking for something beautiful, classic, elegant and charming, the Evergreen series is what you want with delicate filigrees and intricately decorative overlays blended into classic Tudor, California Mission and Swiss Chalet styles. This series is hugely popular and the natural choice for most homeowners who want style and class. The Newport series is a brilliant innovation, a tangential departure from the delicate filigree and ornate overlays of the Evergreen series. Most of the creations are outdoor fixtures with decidedly nautical accents, finished to perfection. The Arroyo Craftsman range has a huge number of series. It makes you sit up and think. If a manufacturer goes to extraordinary lengths to create such a wide series then it is incumbent on you to devote a little thought to selection of the right fixture not only to match interior and exterior décor but also with a view to adding to the personality of your home and align with your personality too. Arroyo show there is no limit to imagination or creativity and that you can draw inspiration not only from heritage but also from people and nature. If you are discerning and want to look at a wide, wide range, look at Arroyo Craftsman series.
