Thank you for celebrating with us
On March 30th, Boyd Lighting, a family-run San Francisco legacy of exquisitely crafted luxury luminaires, and several design collaborators joined Archetype to celebrate the debut of this extraordinary new exhibit, which features many of Boyd’s most iconic and timeless modern releases, including fixtures from their most recent collections, plus Boyd’s brand new, just-launched Lily series.
We’re so grateful to the local community of design professionals and lighting enthusiasts who joined us to celebrate this incredible team and their exquisitely timeless creations.
In Case You Missed the Party
The launch event was only the beginning. The pop-up will be on display this spring through summer, and we’re offering tours of the show on an appointment basis. Trade professionals are invited to use the link below to schedule a studio visit and tour.
An Exclusive Experience
The installation features more than a dozen distinct Boyd lighting creations, including new releases and custom configurations and modifications. You cannot see many of these fixtures on display anywhere else, and there certainly isn’t a collection of Boyd Lighting luminaires like this in any other space at this time. Book A Private Tour.

More About Boyd
Boyd Lighting is a fourth-generation company dedicated to creating uncompromisingly beautiful, artisan-made lighting.
Founded in San Francisco in 1921, Boyd has spent the last century building a legacy of honest, enduring design. With premium materials and a made-to-order ethos, Boyd’s lighting is built by craftspeople who care about every detail, using time-honored techniques to cut, solder, turn and hand produce every piece so that each one bears the loyal imprint of its maker.
Their name is synonymous with quality, timeless sophistication and beauty. Don’t miss your chance to experience these extraordinary fixtures in person: Book A Private Tour.
We’ve paired the Boyd exhibit with an elegant architectural lighting display featuring sumptuously chic recessed and wall-mounted lighting by One A Denmark. One A’s sleek, stylish aesthetic and undeniable quality will draw you in. Their clever design, versatility and integrated solutions will make you a lifelong fan of this Danish line.
Perfect for corporate lounges, hospitality, high-end residential, restaurant and luxury retail design projects, and other spaces that call for timelessly extraordinary modern lighting. Book A Private Tour.
The Venue: Archetype’s Studio
Our studio’s 1,800 square feet of open gallery space was designed to be the perfect canvas for pop-up viewing opportunities. Clouds mounted to high ceilings in our lobby area are spaced to allow an uncluttered, 360° view of suspended luminaires, showing off both the fixture and the affixing hardware. Our corridor area is lined on one side with spaces that allow specifiers to view pendants and wall-mounted luminaires up close; the opposite side is designed to showcase recessed fixtures at a range close enough to appreciate the hardware, but roomy enough to allow meaningful observation of light.
We’re conveniently located in the Vermont Center in San Francisco’s Design District. Parking is easy, abundant and free to visitors, and our studio is near major freeway exits.
Archetype Lighting is a San Francisco-based manufacturers representative that connects Northern California and Hawaii’s professional trade communities with extraordinary lighting brands from around the globe. See our line card for a list of our world-class brands.
