Luis started his career in lighting in 1984 at a lighting showroom on Van Ness Avenue. Three years later he was recruited by a leading showroom in San Francisco. He then began to participate in educational seminars and manufacturer product training, further establishing his role as a lighting expert. After ten years of showroom experience Luis decided to go into business himself. He established T. Haynes Lighting in 1997, naming the company after his loving and supporting wife. Starting this business gave him the opportunity to provide more comprehensive services to his growing customer base. His passions include classical music composition, fine arts, and horses.

T. Haynes Lighting is a full service lighting supplier with an emphasis on customer satisfaction. We meet with home owners, general contractors, interior designers, and architects to determine the best lighting for your project. Our extensive knowledge in the ever-changing world of lighting technology allows us to find the best value while staying within a given budget.

T. Haynes Lighting also works on commercial projects including Hospitality, Multi-Unit Residential, Tenant Improvements, Capital Improvements (for HOAs and Owners), Restaurants and Small Businesses. We provide complete estimates with attention to budget and the overall project goals. We verify product availability to ensure your lighting can be delivered within your expected timeline and propose crossovers when needed due to budget or time constraints. After placing your order we follow up on the status with each manufacturer to obtain estimated ship dates, tracking, and technical information. Finally, your lights are delivered at your convenience and we will coordinate with the installer as needed.
