LIVING LIGHTING ON KING
As a franchisee, Living Lighting on King takes advantage of being part of Canada’s largest lighting chain while also putting its own stamp on an established business model.
At first blush, Living Lighting on King is a beautiful boutique-style lighting store featuring a wide range of today’s best lighting fixtures. Upon closer examination, the showroom is an amalgamation of small, special details. There’s music, a contemporary blend of tribal beats and ambient sounds, playing loudly. The aroma of freshly brewed coffee and tea adds to the ambience. Fixtures are hung at a height you would find at home, making them easier to see and touch. Taken as a whole, the showroom offers a unique shopping experience that stimulates all the senses. Emerging trends in colors, merchandising and marketing encourage the company to push the customer experience forward.
This past year has had its ups and downs. Personal challenges for staff members made the team stronger and closer. A new website was launched. The showroom’s second annual lighting design competition involved 12 artists, who were asked to take a deconstructed light fixture and rework it using any art technique to create a new piece of original lighting art. An evening opening kicked off a month-long exhibition in the showroom that culminated with awards for the top three artists.
