Our Mission

Our Mission

Beautiful. Sustainable. Handcrafted in California. This isn’t just our tag line. It’s our mission and it permeates everything we do. We strive to provide the most beautiful products while making sure we do right by our home. This means supporting the community by hiring local artisans who create sustainable products that keep our environment healthy. Even cooler– our entire facility is powered with rooftop solar!

About Us

It’s been 24 years since husband and wife, Lawrence and Christa, founded Metro Lighting. In that time, our showroom has expanded from a small garage workshop to an 8000 square foot facility, with more than 40,000 fixtures sold. Metro Lighting takes inspiration for our name from the work of early Modernist architect Hector Guimard, designer of the famous Paris Metro subway stations. Drawing from this, as well as backgrounds in architecture, Lawrence, Christa, and the Metro team have delivered beautiful, eco-friendly, artisan lighting to over 18,000 customers and businesses since 1993. Metro Lighting was recently awarded the Climate Leader Award by CoolCalifornia.

Metro Lighting is thrilled to brighten the lives of our customers. We produce our lighting in-house and work with a vast network of American suppliers to support our community along with yours. Come visit us!
