• Welcome to our new website, launched February 2014! Our online shopping experience focuses on our sustainable product line and items that we can build and ship quickly. 

    We also offer hundreds more sconces, pendants, table and floor lamps in our Berkeley showroom. To get a better sense of these offerings, take a virtual showroom tour or check out our previous website at metrolighting.lmi.net. There you will find a wider array of fixtures that we are happy to build-to-order. We offer these mostly for in-store pick up, but we can ship many items within the U.S. These fixtures take 4-6 weeks to build. Some prices have changed, and some glass shades have been discontinued; please call or email for more information.

  • Our Mission

    Beautiful. Sustainable. Handcrafted in California. This isn’t just our tag line. It’s our mission. 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.  

    About Us

    It’s been 21 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 35,000 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 12,000 customers and businesses since 1993. Metro Lighting was recently named a 2013 Residential Lighting Showroom Of The Year finalist. 

    Metro Lighting has always striven 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.
