About Team Whale

Black Whale Home has been an integral part of the San Diego Design and Build community for the past 28 years.  We love that so many of our customers are repeat customers.  This tells us that the regular changes we make to better our services are being recognized by our customers.

We love what we do!  And we have made a concerted effort over the past couple years to up our game.  We are already your "go to Lighting Experts".  Our staff is well trained and our selection is unsurpassed.  We have also expanded several home decor categories to include custom upholstery, quality wall art, permanent botanicals, area rugs and so many great accessories.  Our philosophy is simple- keep it classic.  Regardless of your style, pick something timeless because these pieces should last years and be the "bones" of your space.  Accessories, pillows and some wall decor are easy ways to update and freshen a well designed space.  We are always updating our space and showing you the latest trends and design ideas.  Nearly 50% of our customers are interior designers so we are fully aware of what's on trend and how they are using these assets with our Southern California Architecture.

As 2020 brought crazy changes for all of us, we realized quickly that we were not well positioned for 2021 and shopping from home after 28 years of servicing our customers in person.  We had an online presence, but not the one our customers needed.  So we have blown our site up three times this year to finally land on a website we are truly proud of. We can't wait for you to explore our pages and large assortment of product.

We rebranded to Black Whale Home at the beginning of this year.  We added a full line of US Made custom upholstery by Norwalk Furniture, area rugs, and many lines of home accessories.  We were recognized by readers of Ranch and Coast as the best Home Accessories /Decor Showroom!  We have also added a great selection of holiday decor and gift ideas for your shopping pleasure.  This paired with our options for in store shopping (with mask and social distancing), local delivery, curbside pick up and drop shipping will make shopping with us a breeze this holiday season.

Check out our social media on facebook and Instagram. We share many projects we work on, shopping trips for new product, new showroom displays and a few personal pictures of our team.

We are humbled to have been so busy this year.  We appreciate our community and our customers.  Our mission for the past 28 years has been to distinguish ourselves as the leading resource for unique, quality lighting and home decor.  With many years of experience, our sales professionals are certified and ready to offer you the most professional and beautifully curated showroom in the industry. 

Sincerely,

Kirsten Recce and the team at Black Whale Home
