We design and build lighting in California with the finest craftsmanship and authentic materials.

At the core of Cerno’s business is a friendship that dates back to when the three founders became close friends as young boys, growing up in Laguna Beach. Laguna Beach’s creative culture and natural environment shaped our professional and aesthetic ideals. As kids we were surrounded by people who used their hands and their minds: people who found ways to make a living doing what they love. Naturally, we made art, rebuilt boats, experimented launching our own mini businesses, and we explored the West Coast together. Looking back it’s now clear that our childhood projects and experiments grew into our best adventure yet: building Cerno.
