Berkeley Lighting Company

The best. They have many many lamps of al shapes and designs. Artistic to more modern or that rare more classy lamp. The presentation of all the lamp are laid out very well in the store. You are greeted by some of the kindest people. I came with special needs and was helped out with such grace and patience. I highly recommend this shop for lighting needs. The custom brass checkout table is gorgeous has a steam punk feel, custom. Many lamps here feel custom and desirable. Come and take a look you will find something you love.

Needed a light for the bathroom vanity. Found a huge selection of beautiful styles to choose from. The staff was very helpful and explained the pros and cons of all the different varieties. The store was almost closing, but they did not pressure me to make a decision. Instead, they showed me magazines with even more choices. Later I called in my order, and they sent me a receipt in the mail. Three weeks later, I thought I did not receive the light yet. So I called them and they told me it was shipped and delivered and must have been stolen. They said they would file a claim and have a new one shipped immediately. I looked and found it in my garage, where someone had taken it inside. I apologized and thanked them for their good service. It was worth the drive from the South Bay.

Saturday. Noon. Our housewarming party is in several short hours, and our living room is lit solely by two small desk lamps that, in the evening, cast long shadows and hazing light that make everyone look like they are starring in Tod Browning’s 1931 cinematic masterpiece, Dracula. We desperately need a standing lamp. The fate of our party depends on it. Cut to Berkeley Lighting Company, shockingly popular at this time, and it has LOTS of standing lamps. My boyfriend and I meandered through $1k+ atrocities, $700 swanky LEDs, classic-looking $400-500 pieces, and finally landed on… the perfect standing lamp. Black with a stylish inverted “shade” that looked like frosted glass, but on closer inspection was plastic. It was simple and sleek. The best part? It was $91–hundreds of dollars less than significantly uglier alien-tech-esque options. (To put it more diplomatically, there were options available for all kinds of tastes, style preferences, and budgets.) While deliberating on how we were going to bring our new lamp home (we’d arrived in my boyfriend’s smaller car, and this impulse stop meant that there were already two enormous helium balloons in the backseat from the party store next door), one of the women helping us asked where we lived. Okay, south Berkeley–well, where in South Berkeley? Turns out, one of her coworkers lived fairly close and was happy to drop off the lamp after he got off work around 6pm. No delivery fee, just out of kindness. (An additional kindness: he recognized that we live near a burger joint, and he recommended a different, better place to try!) He called around 6:10 to let us know he’d just gotten off work and gave us an ETA. When he arrived, he wasn’t sure if we’d picked up the light bulbs we’d bought, so he brought extras for us, just in case. Talk about going above and beyond for your customers! I talked up BLC several times during the party–which was very successful, in part due to warm lighting that prevented anyone from looking like a washed out ghoul. I’m a fan and will be putting others onto this place!

If you’re looking for new lighting, Berkeley lighting is a great resource. Over the years I have used them for my home and my gift shop. I have worked with their onsite lighting designers to find unique solutions for my kitchen, bath, bedroom, and even spot lighting for jewelry cases. This awesome satellite chandelier caught my eye recently for my mid-mod home. Go check them out.

Veronica helped me out with lighting for my son’s bedroom. Great service here, thanks!

“Dan patiently listened, honed in on what we wanted (no easy task), and found us the perfect solution.” in 6 reviews

I was just at Berkeley Lighting Co. for the first time. I have been up and down both sides of the bay trying to find someone who didn’t just want to sell me something. I moved from Menlo Park, and have been trying to find fans and lights for a loft in Fruitvale, and had a good idea of what I was after. Today, i went into Berkeley Lighting and spoke with Dan. I finally met someone who said, “Not a good idea. Here’s why,…” made suggestions, dug out a ton of books, and installation photos, and I left with a much better understanding of my next steps – without buying the fans. I have more measuring to do, and need an electrician (he referred me to one for a quote), but he saw where I was trying to go, and is helping me get there. Next – electrician, and after that I’m getting the fans from Dan Seguin. The guy was great.

Really interesting stuff and a staff that knows about stuff that’s not on the walls. Dan helped me get a new, more appropriate for my house, porch light. I wanted something striking but with simple, masculine elegance. He helped me find the perfect fixture. Special orders take a while so if you don’t see what you like in the store, expect a bit of a wait. I think that this is really typical for lighting outlets. Prices are what you’d expect for a higher-end lighting store. Watch for sales and ask the staff if there are alternatives if you need something cheaper. It’s easy to get spendy on lighting – sometimes that’s appropriate and other times you just need something that works. The folks at this store get that difference. Follow up is excellent with calls to let me know what was happening with my shipment. Love that.

Nesty nesterson. That’s who I am. And now with the rain I feel even the more so. I have a plan for this weekend and it’s going to be hella sticks and feathers. Last weekend I got to thinking that the new floor would be accented more pleasantly with different and more interesting illumination. I was naturally born with a basic inclination towards nestiness and a desire to make them but sadly not so much in the way of the skills. I try, though, and through the trial and error I think I do OK. So first I went to the way cool lighting store over yonder it’s new and has a ton of really smart stuff but I found that the fixtures that fastened to the ceiling by hardware and not a more flexible attachment had to be special ordered and it would take three weeks and I got little in the way of sympathy or alternatives so feeling sad and cold I left. And headed straight over to the Nest District on San Pablo where angels sang even from a distance as I came up University I heard them and knew I had made the Proper Decision. Mucho selection, though not admittedly cool as the other place with some of the selection they more than made up for it by having a) nice stuff, b) a decent selection, c) really really nice and attentive and pleasant and real staff who almost could have given me a candle in a sack and I’d have gone home happy. I didn’t get a candle in a sack. I got a melted looking hand crafted pretty shade that hung by a flexible attachment that I could size myself at home and if it turned out we didn’t get along I had seven days for a refund and I think longer for a store credit and that’s pretty fair so I brought it home. She gave me two bulbs for free. One she said was her favorite and indeed – it’s my favorite too. If you need something out of this world and the nature of the transactional interaction isn’t important to you there’s many places you can go and get your illumination on. But if you’re liking of the happy shopping experience and are looking for creative but still fairly traditional lighting options then BLC is the place for you. Nest on, nesters.

“Sholeh was there for me, extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and directing me to the right connector to fix the problem.” in 5 reviews

BLC was the first time I had ever been into a professional lighting showroom. I had a fun time walking around and perusing the different light fixtures. They’ve got a beautiful assortment of Tiffany-style stained glass lamps right by the entrance that caught my eye. The staff are all super knowledgeable and very friendly. The service rep to customer ratio is high and I didn’t notice anyone having to wait for assistance. I was there right when they opened and there was a small crowd waiting to get in. It’s clearly a neighborhood fixture and people travel from all over the Bay Area to come get advice and pick up their lights. They have all sorts of lights from standing lamps, desk lamps and sconces to chandeliers and garden pathway lighting. If you name it, they’ve probably got it. BLC basically carries any lighting source that’s not the sun or an open flame candle. I walked away with an orange table lamp for my bedroom. I wanted an upgrade from my IKEA orange lamp that I’ve had for four years. It was perfect!

The store has a great selection of merchandise and the staff is knowledgeable. I highly recommend this store because of the help they provide to customers in completing a project.

I am renovating my house and needed some bathroom lights. Berkeley Lighting has a large selection of beautiful lights, many that’s not seen anywhere else. I did find a sconce that I’ve seen at an another lighting store for less price. I was so happy that I purchased it plus two others. All the people working there are very nice and are customer service oriented. I was promptly notified when the lights came in. I’m rating service 5 stars, the inventory 5 stars, and the price 4 stars. Overall 4&1/2 stars!

Wonderful Lighting store, very high quality lights. It was just what I was looking for inthe East Bay.

We’re on our 2nd remodel and I’ve visited a ton of shops…and yes, am ending up at Berkeley Lighting for almost all our needs. They are so helpful and gosh, I am a terrible decision maker. They are there to help you find the right light: and as you start selecting, they are great at coming up with options to help.

“The owner himself, Sean, was most helpful in guiding us in through the large selection of options.” in 5 reviews

Absolutely amazing customer service. We had a light fixture which needed repair. The fixture was purchased more than seven years ago from Hubbardton Ford. We contacted Hubbardton who immediately sent us the replacement part free of charge. We then contacted Berkeley Lighting to see if they could install the replacement part. They did so, also without any charge, within an hour. Simply as good as it gets. I cannot imagine partronizing any other lighting store in the East Bay other than Berkeley Lighting (and a very special thanks to Chiem at Berkeley Lighting for his splendid repair work).

I went in today with a light fixture from my ceiling. One of the bulbs blew and I was worried about the wiring. A man who works there named Chim helped me right away. He proceeded to fix my light, replace the bulb and test it within 10 minutes. They wouldn’t let me pay. I walked out and had a working light for free!

After shopping at all the lighting stores in the east pay looking for pendents we found the best selection and the most knowledgeable service in the area. Dan was fantastic and had lots of patience as we kept changing our minds. Save yourself some time and go here 1st!!

I’m am thrilled with the service from Berkeley Lighting. We purchased a custom floor lamp and subsequently broke the glass shade. The entire staff was so helpful with ordering a replacement shade and following through with tracking the order. Installing the shade was tricky and I was intimidated. Dan S.came to our place and installed it at the end of his work day. Thanks Dan! I realize this was above and beyond your duty. The store is beautiful with an incredible selection. Street parking is plentiful. Best of all is customer service! I won’t shop anywhere else.

Berkeley Lighting combines the best by having expert lighting specialists on their staff and a showroom to see all manner of fixtures. I needed 14 LED fixtures for a remodel of 3 rooms (kitchen, bath, and bedroom) and exterior lighting. I also needed Title 24 compliant lighting systems. Sherry and Veronica provided superior technical support, knowledge of the many product options, and great service. Sherry in particular helped me as I struggled with finding that one last fixture! The results are spectacular. There is no way I would have had this successful outcome by randomly buying lights off the internet! Thank you all at Berkeley Lighting!

We were looking for lighting for our bathroom and we’ve been everywhere and we’ve had no luck finding the perfect one. We decided to try Berkeley lighting even though they are farther away from us and as soon as we walk in we saw what we wanted and just fell in love with it. They didn’t have it in stock but they can order it for you. We love it so much that we end up buying the display. They have good selection of lighting that you won’t find everywhere else and they were very helpful. Very satisfied with our first visit here, we will be coming back for our next remodel.
