Dearborn Lighting Design is based in the Pacific Northwest city of Portland, Oregon, where their designs originate for projects around the country. Residential and commercial lighting challenges are met with innovation and creative solutions, as a result of experience, communication and a team approach with clients, architects, interior designers and general contractors.

Lighting design is vital in creating visual impact, not only for art and spaces, but also for beautiful architecture. It is a specific field that studies engineering and aesthetics. In the end, the combination of these two items will produce a perfectly lit space that will provide both beauty and function.

With over 40 years of combined professional design experience, Dearborn Lighting Design can achieve excellence in all areas, including: Residential, Commercial, Retail, Healthcare/Sr.Living, Hospitality, Clubhouses, Ecclesiastical, Equine facilities, and Memorials. We are involved directly with our clients to determine their needs to ensure a seamless transition from inception through the completed project.

We support the act of practicing Green Design and Sustainability, and do so by implementing and applying it into our lighting design whenever, and wherever possible. We find it essential to be conscious of energy efficiency, cost effectiveness, and reducing waste to benefit the environment, our clients, and future generations. We strive to educate our clients on the latest products for achieving the lowest footprint to the earth that we can make.

Our ultimate goal is to make our clients happy by providing them with a well-lit space that gives them the functionality, and beauty that surpasses what they had envisioned. There is no better advertising than a referral or repeat customer, and the only way to do that is to continue to do excellent work for and with, excellent people.
