Dave Carr, CEO and Designer of Del Mar Lighting, has a passion for decorative lighting, which spans through three generations. During the 1920’s and 30’s, Dave’s grandfather was a well-known decorative lighting designer who provided innovative lighting fixtures, sconces, and chandeliers for celebrity icons such as Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Bob Hope, Walt Disney and John Wayne, to name just a few. As a boy and into adulthood, Dave worked with his father in the family-owned lighting manufacturing business, Carr Lighting, in Los Angeles. Desiring to create a full-service, one-stop-shop for designers, architects, builders and homeowners, Dave Carr founded Del Mar Lighting in 2001.

Manufacturing both in the US and China our designs are featured in world-renowned resorts and casinos.
