Barron Collection from Hudson Valley Lighting. In the first half of the twentieth century, Danish architects attempted to address the issue of glare inherent in electric light. In our Barron family, we apply the solution they came up with layered, curved shades to light fixtures with a floral bent. A finely textured black on the outside and a metal finish on the inside, Barrons shades are a visual delight in person. Opal etched diffusers nested in pairs within each shade further soften and diffuse the light.
