Our Story

Distinctive Lighting Concepts began in 1994 as a small lighting business located in Elmwood Kitchens’ showroom in St. Catharines, Ontario. From this location we developed a loyal client base and a reputation for offering unique lighting alternatives.

In 2016 we moved to a new location on Scott Street West so we could display many new and exciting light fixtures and include home accessories in this easy to find location.

Over the past 25 years, we have built a solid reputation for knowledge, skill, and commitment to quality as we strive to be Niagara’s finest lighting showroom and supplier of brand-name lighting and accessories.

Our new website design, launched in May 2021, was built with this in mind – Be Inspired! Our online showroom allows our clients to easily browse and shop by lighting categories, including everything from pendant lights and chandeliers, to ceiling fans and floor lamps, to outdoor fixtures, wall sconces, specialty lighting, and more.

For more styling ideas & tips, new fixtures, bold looks and cool trends, be sure to follow us on Instagram.
