Lightopia was founded in Laguna Beach, California in 2006 by brothers Ken and Lawrence Vick.

Prior to opening Lightopia, Ken and Lawrence both worked in the Financial Services industry. In 1998 Lawrence was the Financial Manager of Tech Lighting and introduced Ken to the lighting industry. This introduction awakened a creativity for design, architecture, and lighting that quickly became Ken’s passion.
Laguna Beach, California is well known for its appreciation of fine art, architecture, and sustainable living. Lightopia, sharing those interests, launched there in 2006 with a small sandy 1000 square foot showroom. They quickly became involved in design projects throughout Orange County and Los Angeles.

Lightopiaonline.com was launched in 2008 to give customers and trade partners increased access to products and ideas - and an overall better shopping experience.

In 2012, Lightopia expanded north to Los Angeles county with the opening of its Manhattan Beach showroom. The South Bay’s rapid development helped push Lightopia to established its premier architectural lighting design service.

2016 was a transition year as the flagship Laguna Beach home was moved to the new Soco Design Center in Costa Mesa.

Lightopia secured its first storage warehouse in 2018 in order to better service customer demands and delivery for both the Southern California and US market.

2019 brings the launch of their latest venture further into Los Angeles with the opening of a Santa Monica showroom located in the heart of Silicon Beach.
