Hi Lacey.
As I mentioned to Christian, my husband and I are absolutely thrilled by how the bookshelves turned out. We knew they were going to be cool, but we didn’t know just how cool. They look magnificent…such a beautiful addition to our home! And we so appreciate how careful he and the crew were during the installation process. Very impressive given the weight & mass of the materials they were dealing with (and bringing them in through the window, no less). 
All the best,
The Olsens
Hi Lacey and Christian.
Thought I’d touch base to let you know how much Lance and I love the bookshelves you created & installed last Feb. The finish, the tonalities, the precise detailing around the intake vents…it’s all exquisite.
Pretty much everyday we take a moment to note what a wonderful addition the bookshelves are to our home. And such a relief to have room to grow into!
All the best,
The Olsens

It is with great pleasure that I have the opportunity to write of my experience working with Lighting Forge, specifically Christian Difrancesco. I have felt that the amount of specializing for each of the products he creates in my behalf is the critical most unique aspect of his company. I am able to create as I dream for my interior design clients. Christian and his team listen carefully and work a great degree to ascertain my “custom design” meets my specifications. I could not be more pleased with the results of his work which are housed in projects across the country that our firm has been involved in. Besides the upscale craftsmanship I appreciate their willingness to try new things…and believe me I ask for that frequently. Our finishing requirements have always been “out of the ordinary” and I would have to say they have reached beyond their comfort zones to match my expectations.

My relationship with this company began when Christian was a young boy learning the trade from his most involved father. I watched as Christian learned the trade and began to be the foreman and slowly took over the business. I saw the son grow up to be in charge of this business and take it to a higher level. I am proud to say that I only turn to Lighting Forge for my projects and I plan on staying with them another 24 years!I bought this theme and i would like to recommend it to every one interested in building a website without knowledge of php or html. It is very convenient and the customer service is very reactive. I will say it in French “Bravo” for this work!

This letter is sent to you to express my appreciation for the integrity you’ve shown in the execution of the previous work you have contracted with Paulsen Construction for. Most of your work for us has been in bronze railings but you have also done some fine decorative grill work.

We’ve found the quality of your work to be excellent and you strive to accommodate the wishes of the client no matter how stringent they may be.

Two of the projects that stand out as significant that you have completed for us are the carriage house and west porch at the Utah State Governor’s Mansion and the Mormon Battalion Monument at the State Capitol grounds.

Thanks so much for the quality work you do. We hope there will be many more projects in the future for us to do together.

Thanks to Lightning Forge we have a most unique, and beautiful porch roof. I have wanted a roof over our porch for twenty years and finally have one. For the last two years I worked with an excellent builder on ideas for the roof. Nothing seemed to work. We contacted Paul at Lightning Forge and he designed and fabricated an amazing roof. It is a curved wrought iron design with frosted acrylic panels on the top. It is supported by corbels and is a work of art. Everyone at Lightning Forge was professional and excellent to work with.

Thank you.
