Southern Lights Electric was founded in 2011 by husband and wife team Adam & Jamie Gatchel. The idea for Southern Lights Electric came to Adam while on break from his job as a touring musician. In his spare time, he began to build custom lighting for a new home.
As the custom lights began to pile up, Jamie came up with an idea: Bring customized, handcrafted lighting to customers online. After building an online brand and making the first sales, SLE was born.
It wasn’t long before local and international restaurants began to reach out for unique and custom lighting. Since 2011 our small team of craftsmen have hand built lighting for thousands of homeowners and over 150 commercial projects worldwide. At Southern Light Electric, we are passionate about creating beautiful, timeless lighting that illuminates and tells a unique story in your space for generations.


From the beginning of time, light has been a source of safety, clarity, and community. Light shines brightest in moments of darkness and illuminates moments of joy. At Southern Lights Electric, our mission and purpose is to help bring the power of light to the world in unique and dependable products. Our passion and mission can be found hard-wired into every light we create. Our goal is to use handcrafted lighting to help your space tell a story that will span generations.
