The De La Guerra Collection

HISTORY IN LIGHTING

The De La Guerra Collection by Santa Barbara Lighting Company emerges as a tribute to the region's rich history and timeless architecture. Drawing inspiration from the historic Casa De La Guerra and the De La Guerra family, these handcrafted lighting fixtures offer a glimpse into the Spanish and Mediterranean elegance that defines Santa Barbara. What makes the De La Guerra Collection truly exceptional is the founder's lineage – original descendants of the De La Guerra family, where the great-grandfather held esteemed roles as the mayor, el presidente, and a vital force behind the inception of Fiesta in 1924.

Preserving History

Casa De La Guerra's Journey Through Time

The iconic Casa De La Guerra, with its white adobe walls and red-tiled roof, stands as a testament to Santa Barbara's Mexican period from 1821 to 1848. Built between 1818 and 1828 for José de la Guerra, the fifth comandante of the Presidio, the casa served as the epicenter of social, cultural, and political life in the region. Restored to its original grandeur by the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation in the 1990s, Casa De La Guerra delves into three generations of the De La Guerra family, offering insights into life in early 19th-century Santa Barbara.
