From Tricorn Black to Oil Rubbed Bronze, Challenger Lighting offers an exceptional variety of expertly hand-applied paints and stains for wood, metal, ceramic, resin and acrylic finishes. These swatches represent just a small example of what we can do. We welcome your custom challenges, so please contact us or provide us with the name and number of your paint color, Pantone® color or sample chip for matching.
Applied to metal to create finishes, such as polished or brushed nickel on steel. Plating requires polishing to smooth the metal surface. Our standard plated finishes include Brushed Nickel, Polished Nickel, Satin Brass, Antique Brass and Polished Brass. If you don't see a desired plated technique, please inquire.
Applied to metal to create a hard, corrosion-resistant finish color. Color options are available as a custom order.
This process is commonly used on metal, wood, resin, acrylic and ceramic to achieve the desired finish effect. Challenger uses a superior heavy-duty primer coated base before applying custom hand finishes. If you don’t see a desired faux technique, please inquire.
Glazing and high firing of ceramics produces a beautiful china-like finish. Gloss and matte finishes are available.
All plated metal and wood finishes are protected with a clear lacquer finish to maximize the durability and longevity of the finish. In high humidity areas (coastal regions) we recommend additional finish protection available for an additional charge to prevent corrosion and rust.
Challenger offers a broad selection of wood finishes. Please note, wood is a natural material with character, color and grain patterns, which vary even within the same tree. For this reason, we cannot guarantee that all lamps will have the same wood characteristics. Please request an actual wood sample for your reference, or supply your sample chip for custom matching at no extra cost.
Authentically replicate the decorative appearance of concrete, marble or wood. If you're looking for a different simulated finish, ask us to create it for you.
Finishes may vary due to computer screens. Please contact us to obtain a sample.
