Beautiful. Sustainable. Handcrafted in California. Metro Lighting builds lamps and fixtures in-house, in Berkeley. Many of their glass shades are crafted in Northern California, some of which are made from recycled glass, or repurposed items such as wine or liquor bottles, telephone pole insulators, and traffic lenses. Their award-winning facility also produces 100% of their power. High-efficiency light engines are available for every fixture. Metro Lighting has been an Alameda County Certified Green Business since 2006.
