“We’ve received our first order from Authentic Designs and we wanted to tell you how pleased we are with the pieces. The Stockbridge Chandelier is a special favorite. And the custom sizes of the Brookline Chandelier are perfect. The clients are very pleased. Thanks for making us look so good…”

- Thomas Grant of Thomas Grant Chandeliers

To Authentic Designs,

I am just writing to say that after 15 years we are still so thrilled with our original lighting  fixtures that we purchased for our home. We built our reproduction New England farmhouse fourteen years ago in Boxborough, MA and carefully searched for the perfect lighting. After a trip to Vermont we came upon Authentic Designs and followed through with three simply beautifully designed chandeliers. Their light has been with us through-out so many occasions, from everyday dinners to wedding celebrations. We love them and are so appreciate of your skill and craftsmanship. We frequently recommend your company to friends and will continue to do so. Thank- you so much once again for our beautiful chandeliers.

 - Philip and Mary Rowlinson
