Arroyo Craftsman Outdoor and Exterior Lighting

The Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century, in reaction to the design excesses and mass production of the industrial age, emphasized design that was simple, handcrafted and true to the nature of the materials from which it was made.

The creative influences of designers and artisans such as Frank Lloyd Wright, C.R. Mackintosh, Charles and Henry Greene, Dirk Van Erp, Gustav Stickley and Louis Comfort Tiffany, established an American art form which embraced organic architecture, handcrafted furnishings, and fine lighting united in harmonious style that encouraged a simpler lifestyle and a return to basics.

In the late 1980's, a Pasadena artisan, who had grown up surrounded by the "ultimate bungalows" of the Greene brothers, believed that the time had come again to embrace the design and lifestyle promoted by the Arts and Crafts movement and created what became "Arroyo Craftsman".

Arroyo Craftsman designs and manufactures fine architectural and landscape lighting that honors the traditions of elegant simplicity combined with a quality craftsmanship established by the founders of the American Arts & Crafts movement. Arroyo Craftsman's creative interpretations of this design aesthetic and strict attention to quality have made them the premier manufacturer of contemporary Arts & Crafts inspired lighting.

What makes Arroyo Craftsman mission style lighting special?  Arroyo Craftsman prides themselves on attention to detail, hand finishing, and quality.  Because of that, and an extensive variety of choices in metal finish and glass combinations, Arroyo Craftsman lighting offer the finest quality and greatest selection in Arts and Crafts and mission inspired lighting available.

The beauty of Arroyo Craftsman Lighting products is more then skin deep.  Arroyo Craftsman lighting fixtures are made of heavier gauge brass than is common, giving them a more substantial appearance and increased durability.  The rivets used  on many of our Arroyo Craftsman fixtures provide both beauty and additional structural integrity.  Arroyo Craftsman glass panels are installed with both retaining clips and silicone to ensure that they are secured and won't rattle in the wind.

Arroyo Craftsman hand applied finishes are the best in the industry because they take the time to let them "mature".  Arroyo Craftsman's unique verdigris patina is the result of an intensive three day process resulting in a complex and naturally aged appearance.  All Arroyo Craftsman Lighting hand applied metal finishes will continue to mature and change with time.

Arroyo Craftsman Lighting offers eight glass and two mica choices.  Combine them with your selection from one of our eleven metal finishes to create the Arroyo Craftsman fixture that meets your personal needs.  Each Arroyo Craftsman fixture is custom made, just for you.
