CONNECTICUT LIGHTING CENTERS
The customer is boss! That mantra, handed down from founder Arthur Director to his son David continues to contribute to the company’s success.
Opened in 1972 as the area’s first lighting showroom, Connecticut Lighting Centers and its partner store, Restoration Lighting Gallery, take pride in having a knowledgeable, experienced staff. The team includes veteran lighting and home décor professionals who spend a good deal of time learning more about lighting products and technologies at regular in-house training sessions and monthly vendor presentations.
Partnering with vendors has been a winning strategy for Connecticut Lighting. This year it also won the company recognition when it was named one of the first 50 Lutron Five Star Showrooms. The honor recognized a custom-made interactive in-store display of whole-home Lutron lighting controls. The company website paid tribute to Jim Meltzer, Outside Sales Manager, for leading the way: “His vision and ability in home controls and shading is outstanding. It’s rare that one has both the capability of laying out these systems and has the full understanding of the installation process as well. We are extremely fortunate to have Jim leading the team and our efforts.”
