Tudor Revival Style Lighting and Hardware
The Tudor Revival architectural style had developed in America between 1890 and 1930. On occasion, I refer to the style as "The Other Craftsman Style". That is just me of course. I would be a bit partial to the style because I own and live in a Tudor style home. My home, built in 1933, is a very modest English Tudor without the characteristic high pitched roof. Some Tudors have a bit more Gothic characteristics, some a bit more Craftsman influence. Mine would be the later. I love the beautiful woodwork, English style leaded glass windows, high coved ceilings, and the cottage feel of the exterior. Yes...the rooms are small and often "dark". But I sort of like that in this climate. The informal cottage style gardens also work well with this style and lends itself to much creativity.

So why would the creator and owner of a predominantly Craftsman style business own a Tudor style home? Mostly by chance I would say. I was attracted to the "charm" and it was prevalent. Mine still has its original tile roof (please last another 80 years...please). Like most all of my customers, from "house closing" to present, it has been a LOT of major sweat equity. And I'm afraid it is not over!

Many of the homes' right here in Oak Park, River Forest, and Chicagoland in general are Tudor Revival style homes. Some are small and modest (like mine). Many are quite grand and can be considered Tudor Manor(s). When I lived on the East coast, Tudor style was also vast, particularly in the New York/Westchester area, as well as Greenwich, CT.

Many people may not realize that we offer quite a bit of lighting, hardware, and furnishings well suited to the Tudor Revival style. I have been able to incorporate much of it into my own home.

Tudor Revival Lighting:

For the more Gothic look, we have the Vintage Black Iron series, and Iron Abbey lighting by The Mica Lamp Company. Many Tudors also cross over into the Storybook architectural style (especially in CA), and the Storybook series is perfect for this. We also have ceiling fans specifically for the Tudor style.

Much of our lighting by Arroyo Craftsman is also specific to the Tudor Revival style.  The Berkeley series for example works well in any Tudor style home. The Saint George series and Valencia series are also great choices for the Tudor style home. We have had churches order some of them.
