Installed Fixtures at MN State Capitol Building

We were in Minneapolis/Saint Paul recently and had a chance to see some of our work installed in the beautifully renovated Minnesota State Capitol. Once fixtures leave our shop floor, we don’t often get to see the finished product installed in person. So when we have to the opportunity to visit a space with our work present, we jump on it!

Shown here finished in our standard UV stable Faux Bronze Lacquer finish, this fixture is a beauty that holds timeless appeal, and should last, if not forever, then certainly for a very long time.
