"It’s been 23 years since husband and wife team Lawrence and Christa founded Metro Lighting. In that time, their showroom has expanded from a small garage workshop in Berkeley to an 8,000-square-foot facility, with more than 35,000 fixtures sold.
Metro Lighting took inspiration for its 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. They have always striven to brighten the lives of their customers, producing everything in-house and working with a vast network of American suppliers."
