DLG Lighting Co

DLG Lighting’s collaboration with Santa Barbara architect Britt Jewett of Studio 7 has resulted in a line of exterior lighting fixtures that is truly unique. With the launch of its website that includes a detailed online guide for ordering, DLG Lighting Co introduces a convenient way to purchase handmade, architecturally designed lighting.




By offering downloadable sizing information, CAD drawings and Spec Sheets, DLG Lighting provides all the information a homeowner, designer or architect needs to pick out their light fixtures. And with multiple size, mount, finish and glass options, they’ve streamlined the custom process for the customer, allowing for the highest level of quality while dropping the lead-time.

While designs are often inspired by recognizable sources, from Navajo rugs to Moroccan tile, they always start with the material. The nature of iron and the history of iron artistry inform Britt’s designs and show in the detail.




Britt is influenced by a variety of historic and contemporary sources and continues to be inspired by his involvement in local arts and cultural groups, including Opera SB, SB International Film Festival and TEDx, amongst others.

As a developer and seeing the need for stylish, quality lighting, Jim Rickard founded DLG Lighting to fill that void; one where the customer experience was simplified, the product improved and the lead times shortened. Choosing to headquarter in the historic Orena Adobe, in deference to his De La Guerra family roots, Jim created DLG Lighting Co.





DLG Lighting was born out of the belief that, while technological innovations should be embraced and utilized, there is nothing like the fabrication and construction methods used before they existed. Each piece is individually bench-made with every step done by hand, from the welding of joints to the application of the finish, all to ensure an extended lifespan, optimal wear and exceptional durability.





Guided by the timeless classics, with added innovative twists, the designs are fresh and new, while simultaneously maintaining a period look. Influenced by the American Riviera, with designs that draw from our historically rich surroundings and authentic old-world style.

DLG comes from De La Guerra, and is a reference to both the founder’s family and the street on which DLG is headquartered in the historic Orena Adobe. Visit their website that offers tools and resources to assist design and architectural professionals, as well as homeowners in search of the ideal lighting fixtures.
